Daffodil Birthday Card
This week, Fred She Said is a sponsor over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Blog for this weeks challenge.. And some of us FSS DT got to play with some of the FANTASTIC ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon (RRR). The challenge is called Double Dutch, which is to use two different ribbons.
I used some fabulous ruffled ribbon for around the oval of the Daffodil. Then I used some of the 5/8" beautiful Pink Satin ribbon and hand stitched a zig zag stitch down a strip of the ribbon and pulled the threads to ruffle it.
My main image is a Daffodil from the Fred She Said Daffodil Card front Kit in Pink. The Daffodil was printed and cut out three times and layered for lots of dimension. I also use matching Daffodil Digi Papers designed by Bearly Mine Designs for Fred She Said.
The Cardstock, Crocheted flower, button, pearls, & Happy Birthday are all from Close to my Heart.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss in my own unique design.
