The challenge this week at Happileigh Scrappin' is to create a handmade embellishment or two. I really had been wanting to try the twisted ribbon flower technique ever since I first saw it on several blogs, so this seemed the perfect time to try it out. Little did I know when I printed out this adorable butterfly kitty fairy image by Leigh that I would finish making the card the night Eliza died. it was so very therapeutic for me though and helped me recall the happy memories we had together.
Papers are Basic Grey Kioshi, buttons are from my vintage stash, lots of little polka dots were added with my white gel pen, sentiment is a SU! rub-on, and the leaf is a SU! die. ruffled ribbon is created by laying down a strip of sticky tape and then applying organdy ribbon in a haphazard pattern, being sure to press down firmly to adhere.
Please play along with us! Winners will receive free images from the store as well as a great blog badge. It's fun to make an embellishment or two for your crafting projects! and the other Happi Sisters have created some absolutely adorable things to inspire you as well! :) check out the new store releases, too!
