Ribbon Flower "picture"

Hi there and thank you for your visit today.

I have to say that I am feeling somewhat better than yesterday. 
Everything that could go wrong went wrong

But would like to say a big thank you to my friends who 
listened to me and settled my thoughts and feelings. 

Anyway I have tried something really different today  

Ribbon Flower 

I have used a long snippet of ribbon from my Crafty Ribbons Stash !!! 

Then made a flower by stitching 10 cm lenghts of wired ribbon 
so that it looks like a "boat" shape.

Can you see on the photo.

Then pulled the thread to make a petal.

Make 5 petals then stick them together on a piece of felt 

Found a bit of felt (snippet again just look at the shape of that felt ! ) 

and glued with rather a lot of 

3D gell onto the felt - got a bit sticky I have to say. 

Had a rummage around in my button and bobs jar 

Stuck a large button gem in the center with pearls around the edge

Then thought .... now what.... I know 

will cut out a stork and leaves from the felt and mount onto 
a snippet card from my stash which I had already cut out sometime back,

Stamped flowers over the orange card. 

Added the flower to the orange circle onto a Shaving foam backing paper. 

and onto a blue / green card stock 

Well that was different way to use up snippets of stuff. 

Mounted it onto the card stock to make a picture What I really need now is
a deep frame to put the flower into but hopefully you get the idea. 

I would like to enter it for the following (hope it will meet the criteria ) 

Certainly not a card today as the flower is far too heavy and large. 

Well that is it for today

Best see what needs to be done now 

Bit of a tidy up me thinks 

Have a good day
