TRR#59 - Chevrons and Flowers

Welcome to another beautiful challenge from The Ribbon Reel.

Sweet Michelle Bala has chosen such an inspiring photo for our current challenge - isn't this cushion amazing? Such beautiful contrasting colours and design. Michelle is challenging us to use the COLOURS that you can see in the photo and create a project using CHEVRONS and FLOWERS!

I couldn't resist the lovely fabulous chevron paper I have had in my stash for some time. It's from the DCWV 'La Creme' Stack I added an MFT die cut leafy flourish, a cute little chipboard birdcage and added tons of beautiful Ribbon Reel goodies!! For the sentiment, I simply stamped the 'Sweet Birthday Wishes' phrase from Waltzingmouse's 'Compact Sentiments' straight over the patterned paper! I just love the contrast of the cerise pink, black, orange against the wonderful chevrons in Michelle's photo and that is where I found my inspiration.

I used the following products available right now in the Ribbon Reel Store.
A beautiful cerise hybrid tea-rose; cream/orange cherry blossoms; pink hybrid tea rose; the sweetest little 'Made with Love' Nickel charm. And not forgetting the absolutely stunning ribbons I was lucky enough to play with !  16mm Fuschia Pink Two Tone Mesh Ribbon; 15mm Ruffle Edge Black Sheer Ribbon; 9mm Orange Grosgrain Ribbon.
