This is my 2nd post for today, but it's a bit of deja vu - another card that will be submitted for a Clean and Simple challenge (#183) and to Moxie Fab's DIY Embellishments Challenge. I'm also submitting this to LilyPad cards Flower challenge and to Moxie Fab's Don't throw it Away Challenge - let me explain!
The flower on this card was made using ribbon from a t-shirt - you know when you buy a new top, they often have bits of ribbon sewn into the shoulders, so that you can loop it over a coat hanger so it won't slip off? Well, I generally keep my t-shirts folded in a drawer, so I cut the ribbon loops out and use them on my cards! I've been doing this for years now, but this is the first time I've used the ribbon for a flower. I made the flower by just pleating the ribbon onto a Gluber, and adding a SU antique brad in the centre.
