Old Age Fun

Hello and hope you're having a great Saturday! Today we are attending a birthday party and some type of western thing. Anyway, today is also Catch the Bug challenge day, and the new challenge is:

RED, WHITE & BLUE
AND RIBBON TOO!

Most people think 4th of July, but I was in need of a birthday card for my Ma. And Stella is tops for birthdays! I used this week's sketch from Eat Sleep Stamp, added sewing on the panels that's impossible to see (but it's there, I promise), and glaze.

I made a little ribbon rose. I simply took around 10" of ribbon, ran a long stitch on the lower half with needle and thread, pulled one end of the thread, and it rolls up just like a flower.

And of course, I had to include a Stella sentiment on the inside. Hopefully my Ma will get a kick out of this one.

Thanks for stopping by!

If your mom is like my mine, then she will love this Stella card. TOOOOOOO funny!!! You *have* to do a tutorial on how you did this amazing ribbon flower. It's better than any flower I've seen!! You rocked this weeks sketch again. I always love to see your work. Thank you for playing along!
