First handmade ribbon Rose + Challenges

Good Morning Lovely Peeps,  It's a lovely Sunny Day here in Scotland and after posting this I'm off out into the garden to do some tidying up.  From my window in front of me I can see the buds on my cherry blossom tree and all the lovely crocus and miniature daffodils, but I can see some weeds too, so they have to go and as I'm so unsure of the weather it's best to do it now.

I wanted to show you my first ever coloured  lotv stamp.  I've had these stamps for ages, in fact since the launch before the new spring stamps came out and this is the first time I've been able to ink one of them up and colour her.  Oh but she is adorable.  I used Pro markers and glamour dust on her wings and mounted her onto a Nesti scalloped die. I used my new MS large border punch (Garden Gate) behind her and my craft concept embossing folder fluterbys which I've distress with TH inks and a little glitter.  My papers are from MME spring collection

The card has been machine stitched around the edges and on the mounting square behind the sweet fairy.

I watched the video tutorial over at Reasonable Ribbons on how to make one of these super Ribbon Roses, and I must admit I am really quite pleased with it.  I added stickles to give it a bit of a glitzy look. The rest of my recipe is below this post.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges.

Gorgeous, Suzi! LOVE that ribbon rose. I just adore handmade fabric flowers! I'm about to try to make some fabric roses with the seam binding - wish me luck! Have tried before and failed, but wanting to have another go at it.

Glad you got your package! I think your pink seam binding ribbon here looks a bit familiar - LOL! Wait til you see my Simon Says post on Monday. I'm creating a virtual spring garden of crinoline flowers!
