Practical Scrappers Ribbon Challenge

I've been hardly waiting to write up this post for the ribbon challenge at Practical Scrappers this week!  I love ribbon, so naturally I got pretty excited to learn about the ribbon challenge.  However, I wanted to do something new with it so I went on a quest across Internet-land and found this FANTASTIC tutorial over at Scrap A Little by Helen Croft.



To doll the ribbon flower up a bit, I used my Cricut and my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss leaves for the flowers and to add just a bit more zip... I cut a couple of flourishes for the flower too.  The cuts are from my Accent Essentials cartridge which I have been using quite a bit lately I suddenly realized!

The cardstock and patterned papers for this project are from Papertrey Ink. I used Martha Stewart's Royal Butterfly punch for the butterflies and the ribbon and stamped sentiment are Papertrey Ink as well. The pearls are Hero Arts.

I do hope you'll pop on over to Practical Scrappers to check out all the other wonderful Designer inspiration pieces and then join us for this challenge too!
