Skinny Ribbon challenge...


Michelle at Poppicrafts is having a competition - I struggled with this one I have to say - make a card using skinny ribbon (maximum width 7mm) as the main focal point of your card. Well I love ribbon and for me the thicker the better - 25mm is my favourite so when Michelle sent me this 5mm ribbon to make a sample for the competition I did panic a bit!! Eventually I decided to thread it through a series of holes to make a flower. The other DT members have been really inventive you can see what they came up with here. So do you want to win a £20 voucher to spend at Poppicrafts? Just post a card for this challenge on your blog and leave Michelle a link. Think how much ribbon you could buy with that!



I have been busy making some DT cards for Poppicrafts, I wasn't sure about this one perhaps it's a bit too green but I did love this chipboard butterfly, I embellished it with some of the tiny buttons and of course some of the fabulous blooms.






More basic grey papers on this card, with some 10mm ribbon and more blooms and delicious buttons.



My favourite card was this Easter one, inspired by a card that Michelle sent me recently, I love these little heart buttons, they come in such a wonderful variety of bright and cheerful colours, and of course my favourite 25mm satin ribbon (moss green - yum!)and some skinny ribbon too.







pp - variety of Basic Grey

Buttons, ribbons, blooms and brads all from Poppicrafts



We don't have much planned for the Easter break here, a bit of gardening and of course some crafting, and maybe even a little bit of chocolate! Whatever you are up to have a very happy Easter!
