QFTD21 & Ribbon Flower for Speedy's Friends


I'm so late getting the QFTD21 card made to honor Irene aka Dandi93 on Splitcoast but
here I am! My son and his family were here for 5 days. What a treat! They have a son 1 1/2 years old and you know I'm spending time with them instead of crafting.
You can be sure I did miss my cards, though!

I also made this card for the Speedy's Friends challenge #15: http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/ Joanne Travis asked that we make our own embellishment. I looked for a flower tutorial and found this one for a ribbon flower. http://lisapace.com/2007/04/18/ribbon-flower-tutorial/It really was easy and I added two buttons with a hot glue gun.

Stamps: Stampin'Up! Pocket Silhouettes for sentiment
Paper: Stampin'Up! Real Red cs, black cs, white cs
Spare Parts (The Paper Studio) round fabric brads
SU Ticket corner punch
Offray Twill tape w/dot
