Homemade Ribbon flowers

While blog surfing, I came across a sketch that I loved and I knew right away how I wanted to interpret it.

Here is the sketch:

which I found on the Card Patterns blog.

Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I used Bo Bunny paper, maroon and white card stock and the sentiment from Stampendous was stamped with SU's Rich Razzleberry ink.  I learned how to make the flowers from ribbon from this tutorial that I found on You Tube.  I embellished the flowers with flat pears and also applied 3 more flat pears under the sentiment. I love this card and it will be hard for me to part with it if and when I decide to send it to someone.

I also found not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 different challenges that I will be entering this card into.  They all had the same challenge  and that was to make your own flowers.  Here are the blog challenges I am entering my card  into.

Craft your days away; Moving along with the times ; paperplay challenges & Incy Wincy Designs.

I am also entering my card into another challenge:  Bearly-Mine - flowers.

I am hoping to win or at least get an  honourable mention on at least 1 of the challenges I entered.

Thanks for stopping by!
