Too much ribbon?

Do I really need as much ribbon as I have? Do I really need to buy more? Do I really need every shade of every colour - just in case? 
And the answer is: YES I DO.
Luckily for me Shopping Our Stash are having a - use your ribbon challenge. I have been wanting to make one of those twisty curly flowery things for ages. You know the ones - put some tape down on some card, make a knot and place it in the centre then twist and curl and twist and curl and twist and curl (like we did last summer, come on, let's twist again, like we did last year!)
Oooops - back on track now.
It hasn't really made a dent in my ribbon collection but I will work on that.

  1. Jenny, what a beautiful card! Love the colors and the ribbon flower! How did you make that! Tutorial please!!!

  2. Oh, how pretty! I love that you used the same ribbon for the flower and to wrap around. Took me a second to realize how you did it! HA! Thank you for joining us as SOS!

  3. Love that ribbon and the rose is really pretty. Oh, and if you don't spend money on ribbon it will just go towards something else so might as well get what you want!

  4. Your ribbon rose is awesome! Love your CAS card, so fresh looking! Thanks for joining us at SOS!

  5. Wonderful! Love your purple ribbon and the rose too! Great idea using the green one as leaves!
    I know what you mean about ribbon - I just went to the fabric store and got stuck at the ribbons for about 10 minutes ;) but I was strong and didn't buy any!
    Thanks for joining us at SOS!

  10. What a gorgeous ribbon flower! I LOVE gingham, and to see it in lilac is so unusual!! Very pretty card.

  12. pretty card - the ribbon flower is great

    Oh, I love your blog - the ribbons down the side :) - love the colors

  13. Oh wow!! Gingham is one of my very favorites and what could be prettier than a lovely violet gingham? Probably nothing...EXCEPT for a violet gingham rose. ;) I adore the embossing, the white with the violet and hints of green. A super lovely card! Thanks for playing along with SOS.
