Happiness always .........

Edited to add - This card was chosen as a Card Patterns Super 6 Winner :)


This morning I've been busy trying to make my own ribbon flowers after being inspired by Paula Dobson's scrapbook LO. Some flowers were successful, some not so successful *smile*

I'm actually really happy with how these ones turned out. For the Cherry Cobbler roses I watched this. For the Crumb Cake carnation I actually came up with it myself. I have to say it's my favourite. If there's enough interest I might try to do my first tutorial :)

I thought I'd use them with a sketch from Card Patterns.

Here's the sketch -
