Bee Crafty #36 - Ribbons and Bows

Hi there!  If you're here for The Sweet Stop challenge, please scroll down.  This is my second post today.

This week's Bee Crafty challenge is Ribbon and Bows.  You all know how I LOVE my ribbon, so this challenge was really fun for me and I am certain it will be for you, too.  You also have two weeks to participate so that's plenty of time to really find your inner ribbon artist.

Here's what I made...

A few nights ago, as I was drifting off to sleep I start envisioning a SVG frame that I could weave ribbon in.  But, of course, I don't know how to create SVG files so I emailed the very sweet Penny Duncan and she made my dream come true.  Isn't that a great frame!  Well, it's a nested Shaplie, so it comes in all sorts of sizes.  This was just what I was looking for.

Then the corners looked unfinished to me so I started playing with my ribbon to try to make roses.  Well, I failed miserably so I found a great tutorial for the easiest roses ever!  You can find this tutorial here.  The more I made, the better they started looking.

I think I made a card that is pretty worthy of the adorable Whimsical Girl Heart Garden.  She's so sweet.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Pink Pirouette (SU)
Copics:  BV00, BV02, E00, E02, E33, E37, E53, E57, RV02, RV10, YG00, YG03, YR20
Embellishments:  satin ribbon (Offray)
Tools:  SCAL, Cricut, SVG by Penny Duncan

I hope that you join us at Bee Crafty!  Again, have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
