H2H4 Challenge...RIBBON!!!

Another week means another Challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog!!!  This week's challenge is to use at least 2 DIFFERENT RIBBONS!!!  Who doesn't LOVE's the perfect time to show us what you can do with it!

Here's what I did with the "challenge"...if you ask me, the only "challenge" was WHICH COLOR :0)

I made the flower by freehanding a circle on a piece of B&T from my all-time favorite, Notebook Paper Packet...I then stacked about 5 or 6 B&T's underneath (some from Notebook and others from another all-time favorite, Game On)...cut out using a "wavy pattern" with my scissors...secured with a brad and started crumpling...I added a button for the Mini-Medley Accents Colonial White (had TONS left over from my Miracle Kit)...again using the Embroidery Floss Neutral Assortment (Black)...I freehanded the words "thank you" all around the flower for my sentiment.
My 2 different ribbons are at the bottom of the card...the 1st is the Black Grosgrain Floral Ribbon (I used the backside) that comes in the Designer Ribbon Rounds - Black Collection...and the 2nd is the Colonial White Crocheted Ribbon that's layered on comes in the Designer Ribbon Rounds - Colonial  White Collection.  I stitched the ribbon together using the Embroidery Floss Neutral Assortment (Colonial white)...made the 'ruffled' part as I went stitching the flaps together so they would hold.
I don't always photograph the insides of my cards but I thought I would show you what this one looks like...I think it's so important to dress up the inside just like you do the just makes for a nicer presdentation!

I hope you've enjoyed my take on this weeks H2H sure to play along by creating you own artwork and linking back to the H2H Blog using Mr. Linky (complete rules are on  my sidebar or on the H2H Blog).

In the meantime, dont't forget to check out the other Design Team Members' Blogs and see what they've done with the RIBBON Challenge!!!

I love the flower and the ribbon, so creative. I gotta say that when I see your picture of your brown man, I think of you asking him to stand still so you can take a picture. I can imagine what he was thinking. It makes me smile every time I see your blog. LOVE IT!!!! Your work is wonderful.

Katy, this is AMAZING! I love how you combined the Notebook and Game On paper...and that flower...GORGEOUS! I never would have thought to cut the circles out using scalloped scissors. I'm totally trying that :)
