Festive Friday #27 - Ribbon

Hello! For todays Festive Friday challenge, Nicole has asked us to use ribbon, but not in a bow or a knot. So my brain started to tick over and this is what I came up with:

I used always artichoke, cherry cobbler and very vanilla for my colour palette, and used the framelits labels for the mats. I then used a length of seam binding and hand stitched a running stitch along one side then gently pulled it to create a rosette. It did take a little primping to get the look I wanted. I then added a itty bitty button, with a very vanilla background and the centers have some tapestry thread from my stash to finish them off. I added some cherry cobbler seam binding to the base and ruffled it, the seam binding is great to work with for this. The sentiment is from 'four the holidays' and stamped in cherry cobbler. 

So now over to you. Get your thinking caps on and use ribbon in a way it's not normally used and link up your creation to Nicole's blog and while your there check out the great creations from the other design members.

Thanks for looking :)
