Happy Day...




Did you know there have been a few changes over on The Ribbon Girl Blog.  There's now 2 challenges each month.  As well as the monthly colour challenge on the 3rd Sunday of the month there's now a monthly card challenge which launches on the 1st Sunday of every month.


Today being the first Sunday of June, it's time for the 1st card challenge, which is to use ribbon or lace on your card.  Easy peasy so I hope you can join in with us.  As always there's some fabulous prizes for up for grabs with something a little extra this month as it's the Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend here in the UK.

Check out the Ribbon Girl Blog for all the details plus some gorgeous cards from the Card Challenge Design Team.


For my card I've made a Pom Pom flower with Tiny Pom Pom Trim.  Easy to make all you need is a length of trim and a glue gun.


Just coil the trim adding a blob of glue here and there to secure it as you go. I find hot glue works best because you get an instant fix.

When your happy with the size of the  flower, cut off the trim and secure the end to the back.


Now adhere a circle of cardstock to the back of the flower and you're ready to add to your card, layout, hairslide...the list goes on!

Cream Top Stitch Thread

  11. Beautiful card, Vicky. Your flower embellishment is super cute. I really like the paisley paper you used. Would you tell me what it is, please?

    1. Glad you liked my card :)
      The paper is from a digikit called 'Paisley v2' designed by Carina Gardner for Design House Digital. I've had it a while now and am not sure it's still available.
