The Ribbon Reel Challenge TRR #16


Hello and welcome all,

It's time for another wonderful inspirational challenge over at The Ribbon Reel Blog. This fortnight ANYTHING GOES - the lovely Keilly asks that create whatever you like as long as it includes RIBBON, TWINE and/or LACE.

Earlier this month, my cousin and his wife had a baby girl so I was inspired to make a baby card...

TRR #16 Front view

I stitched some beautiful paper from Websters Pages onto some Kraft Card and adhered onto a white card base to which I had already punched a border along each edge and stamped a pink border from the 'Eat Cake' stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used PTI's Fillable Frames #1 stamp set and die to create a label onto which I stamped the New Baby sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Say It With Style' set.

I added some flowers and pink button twine which are also from The Ribbon Reel shop -the beautiful Hellebore (Christmas Rose) in the centre is so delicate - the petals are edged in the most beautiful pale blush pink and those ivory tea roses have such a wonderful texture - simply beautiful!!

I used some of the gorgeous pink/white stripe grosgrain ribbon and light blue velvet ribbon to make the centre panel.

As a finishing touch I added a pearl headed and pink leaf stick pin at the top and a little flower button with more of that sweet pink twine onto the label.
