Also, a first attempt at a pinwheel type of flower. This ribbon (from Michaels dollar bin! YAY) is wire edged and it made arranging the puckers really easy. I have tried this technique before with non wired ribbon and it did not work out well for this newbie. So wired is suddenly my very good friend. I will definitely try this again.
I also sewed in a plastic pearl and covered any mistakes, oops I mean I EMBELLISHED with some stickles around the pearl to finish it off. The flower is stitched to the cardstock and also attaches the little piece of tulle under the tied pink grosgrain ribbon. Just kept stitching until I felt like everything was down tight.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one :)
