Unity FWF...Ruffled Ribbon Flower...

This is my first Unity FWF...this is a card I created a few weeks ago, but never posted on my blog...it is a card for my mommy...she loved the color red...she always looked amazing in red...so, for her, a pop of red...I hope she can see this card...and it makes her smile...

"You are Amazing":

Supplies:
Card: Michaels
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps)
Cardboard: Recycled from a granola bar box
Patterned Paper: Unknown (using up scraps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Stamp: Unity KOTM August 2011
Ribbon: Recycled from Victoria's Secret packaging
Rhinestones: My Minds Eye
Other: Pop Dots; Handmade Ruffled Ribbon

Close up of the handmade ruffled flower I made:

You can easily make one too...follow this tutorial to ruffle your ribbon, http://mochavation.blogspot.com/2011/07/always-fun-when-i-am-with-youcas-sunday.html.
Then, lay your newly ruffled ribbon down in a circle, using glue dots to help secure.

The song, "Just The Way You Are," by Bruno Mars was special for my mommy and me. I used to love to sing it to her at the top of my lungs...especially the verse, "Girl you're amazing, just the way you are". She always was, and still is in my heart, amazing...without even trying. With that little tidbit, you can imagine why this particular stamp jumped out at me when I received my Unity august Kit Of The Month...I inked it up...that day...5 minutes after I opened it up from the mail. That was the fastest I ever used a new stamp! Yep...inspiration...that is what it is all about.


BE and DO something AMAZING this weekend...make memories...cherish them...always...
