Ribbon's are fun! Top Tip Tuesday DT card

Top Tip Tuesday this week we have another great challenge
but first I have to tell you we have also a brilliant tutorial on Ruffled Ribbon from Heike.
This weeks challenge is the red team but as ever I can't resist playing too!

We also have
Stash Books
celebrate handmade

So then what's the challenge?
  2 or more ribbons, can include twine / lace / fabric

I have made 2 cards, the first one is using some ribbon that I ruffled by using the same technique as Heike's tutorial. and I have also used some divine twine, the image is a wild rose studio cute bear Milton with Daisy.
A few fun challenges for this card above are:

My second card is a different idea
I used scraps of ribbon,
There are 5 pieces of ribbon and some Jute, these were new ribbons from Penrith crafts and just love the Jute too! the Ribbed card and bazzil bling are also from Penrith crafts too! The tree pot is hand drawn onto the reverse of the ribbed card and distressed so it fits like a glove on the ribbed card... and the snowflake is an MS punch... PC sentiment disc cut out using nesties.. think that's it!

A few fun challenges I am joining in with for this card are:

 Hope you come join in the fun at Top Tip Tuesday and also pop and see the other DT members and guests  cards they did a brilliant job!
