CardPatterns challenge


Very cool sketch this week at CardPatterns!


I decided to try something new. Well, new for me! I made flowers out of ribbon. Then sewed them together and used buttons for the centers. To tie the colors together, what better paper pack than Basic Grey's Lime Rickey?! Every color of the rainbow and then some in that pp!! This will have to be a hand-delivered card. It would cost the National Debt to mail it. You'd think ribbon would be light. Notsomuch when you use eleventy billion yards of it!!
