Ruffle Edge ribbon flowers........

Our lovely DT member Sasha made this beautiful card using Ruffle Edge Sheer ribbon.  The flowers were also made with the ribbon aren't they pretty? If you'd like to try these here are Sasha's simple instructions;

To make the flowers you will need approximately 15cm (6inches) of ruffle edged ribbon, fold the ribbon in half width ways, so that both ruffle edges are brought together.  Do running stitches along the full length of the folded edge, then pull to gather and secure with a few back stitches.  Now join to form the flower and attach to your card.

So simple and yet so pretty!!!  Why not have a go yourself, we'd love to see your designs!

Introducing the Design Team....

Well the big day has arrived and I am so proud of my new little shop! Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope that you will have a little look at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. It has been a dream of mine to open a shop selling all my favourite things, and I still can't quite believe that I have actually managed it!

You can also look forward to lots of challenges (with prizes Yay!!) and the odd giveaway too.

Today I want to introduce you to the Design team;

Jane - I am sure many of you already recognize Jane's wonderful work, her attention to detail is outstanding.

Sasha - I just love Sasha's style, wait til you see her crochet flowers, just adorable.

Peet - Well I have been a fan of Peet's cards for a long time, her style is very distinctive and I can't wait to see what she does with our ribbons.

Mina - Another familiar face to many of us, Mina loves to use ribbons on her projects, her colouring skills are top notch.

Sarah - that's me!  you'll soon realise flowers and ribbon are my obsession, I use them on just about everthing!

So what about starting off with a little giveaway??  I think it would be rude not to don't you?

To be in with a chance of winning this little bundle of prettiness all you have to do is link this post on your blog(with the photo if you want to ) in the sidebar, become a follower here and then leave us a comment to say hello.  Simple as that, you could win all that ribbon - satin, gingham, organza, grosgrain, silk wrinkle, heart pin wheel and some buttons and bakers twine. You have until Tuesday 2nd August to join in, the winner (choosen at random) will be announced on Wednesday 3rd August.

I really hope you play along with us, we will be starting our monthly challenges next month with another fab prize and you will get to see the team's amazing designs.

thanks for visiting and good luck with the giveaway!
