This weeks blogger challenge is to use ribbon in an unconventional way. The card base is celery, layered with Basic Grey Blush 6 x 6 paper pad. The flourish & foliage are from the Jeanne Streiff collection Swirl Flourish & Just Leaves. The sentiment is Stamp Oasis Petite Words collection. I used a corner rounder with the guard removed for the scallops and a circle scallop punch as the base for my ribbon rose. The punch was covered with double sided adhesive and then I started in the middle and folded the ribbon in half and fashioned the flower, twisting the ribbon occasionally. The variegated ribbon is May Arts and the Shirred Taffeta leaves are Making Memories I believe. The edges were distressed by dragging a toothbrush inked with TH Walnut Stain distress ink. I stamped the sentiment in Black Soot and colored the flat pearls using a Copic marker E04.
