Morning all. Time for a new letter at The Alphabet Challenge. We are up to the letter R, and R is for 'Ribbon. I have had an idea in my head for a while for this one. I was a bit reluctant to try it though as I was afraid it wouldn't translate. I decided to weave some beautiful cream ribbon to be the focal point of the card. It would have been easier if I had chosen to weave a square but that's not what I could see in my head. As it happens I'm really pleased with it. Yes, it was frustrating to weave around a circle and the gold frame does hide the edges where it became too difficult. I just added it to an embossed background and popped on some foliage and pine cones.
I apologise for the quality of the scanned image. It's so much better in real life. I added a sentiment and a bit of bling but other than that I liked it simple. I sort of wish that the glitter card I had cut my pine cones from was less of a greeny gold but it's all I had. I am being super picky really 'cause I am pleased with it. I did use a bit of sparkle pen on the leaves. After all, it is for Christmas.
Please pop over and have a go. I have a massive box full of ribbon and I could use some ideas on how to use it up.
Thanks for reading.
