Crafty Ribbons Challenge 28 - Saddle Stitch Ribbon

Hello there!

This is my second post of the day - scroll down to see my CASE Study post :)

I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the fourteen to take part in this challenge over at Crafty Ribbons blog and I really enjoyed it!  The challenge was to make two projects showcasing beautiful saddle stitch ribbons.

When my ribbons arrived my OCD took over and I felt compelled to lay them out in rainbow colour order (I was the same with coloured oencils when I was younger!) Anyway, this caused a little spark in my brain and my first card for this challenge was born...

Black, white and rainbow....aaaahh - it makes me happy! 

My second card I aready had an idea for before my ribbons arrived, I wanted to make little ribbon flowers and here is how they turned out...

David Bailey I am not, so I'm hoping that when Ali over at Crafty Ribbons photographs these they will look a liitle better??! 

Keep an eye out on the Crafty Ribbons blog for the other 13 entrants' creations, they are sure to be fabulous!
