Barb: Handmade Flowers

This is my first card post as a Posse for Cowgirl Up Designs. The challenge this week is: handmade flowers.

the Flower Ribbons plus 3 images from CJ and the Winners Badge to display on your blog.

This card highlights the new image:TipToe Fairy from the cowgirl up digital stamps. I used several layers in this card as well as on the fairy to add some dimension. The flowers were made using using ribbon, gathering it then adding a button.  I added some glitz with the gelly roll glitter pen (my favorite card making tool!)

Recipe: Digital image stamp: Cowgirl Up Digital Stamp
            Cardstock: DCWV from JoAnn Fabrics
            DP: K&Company
            Flowers: ribbon from michael's gathered then added a vintage button
            Embellishments: pearls: michael's, pink ribbon: michael's
            Martha Stewart luster glass microbeads (on the sunflower)
I hope that you enjoy my card creation. Please feel free to follow our blog. Don't forget to enter your card into our challenge. The ribbon is just adorable! What are you waiting for?
