TRR#47 - Let's Ruffle


Good morning lovely peeps!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge from The Ribbon Reel.  Lenet has chosen the most YUMMY photo to inspire your creativity - isn't it divine!  All you have to do to join us is use RUFFLES and be inspired by the COLOURS in the photo. Great fun! You can find all the details you need on The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog :)


I used some absolutely gorgeous Ribbon Reel products on my card today, the white sheer box pleat  and the pink satin pleat ribbon are just perfect for this challenge! I teamed them with some cute 9mm Candy Pink centre stitch grosgrain, a lilac seam binding bow and some beautiful pink roses.


The 'Friend' sentiment is a stamp from the 'Roses in Bloom' set and the swirly flourishes are from 'Rescue Remedies' - both by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I used the Woodgrain background stamp to create the distressed effect on the Tando Creative chipboard frame.  I painted the frame with cream acrylic paint and then stamped the WMS woodgrain over the top in Distress Ink.

Do play along if you have the chance and don't forget to visit all the amazing Ribbon Reel ladies to see their beautiful creations for the Ruffle challenge - you won't be disappointed :)

Have a great week!
