Here is my little card:
And I have to say I am quite proud of this one.... see below for tutorial
 I'm not keen on taking pictures from this angle but you can see that this is a lovely full rose with plenty of depth.... me thinks this will be a hand delivered card.... tehhehhee!
I want to say thank you to Carla for her wonderful tutorial
for this Ribbon Rose and you can find it HERE

My Tip!
I used button twine instead of thread as it was quite strong and I did not have any thread the same colour as the ribbon, also my ribbon was in several bits
So I taped it as I went through the back of the card layer!
Why was it in bits?
Well it was off a box or chocolates we got for Christmas!
tehheheeee me and recycling again   :0)

I would like to play these couple of fabby challenges too:
Allsorts - Recycling

Ooh-la-la - 3 of a kind - 3 different papers

Hope you like my card and rose... can't wait to see what you all make...

So head over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge
and have a play, the girls have some fabby inspiration for you there!


Off to Painting Class today so keep your eyes peeled....
