*Colour Me pretty* and a Red Rose

This is the first card I've made for a while.  I'm entering it into the Shabby Tea Room challenge - *Colour me Pretty*
The requirements are to use white, cream, pink & blue, fabric and a flower.

Here's the inspiration photo....

Now I want to show you a flower that I just made from ric rac.  I came across a tutorial, and couldn't wait to try it.

Another view...

I used 3/8" wide ric rac....the wider the ribbon the bigger your rose will be.

Here is the link for the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Have a nice day!

Cute Crochet Bows

Hi everyone!  
I came across these cute crocheted bows on Pinterest, & just had to give them a try. They are super easy to make and could be used for a number of projects, i.e. on a hat, headband or even on a card...which is how I'm going to use them. I would have wrapped black yarn around the middle of some of them, but I don't have any.  You could also omit the yarn wrap and add a button or nice gem to the centre.
I found an easy to follow video tutorial on Youtube.  Go here if you'd like to give it a try.   

Thanks for stopping by today, now go and check out the video & have fun making your own bows!
