Mother's Day Card

I just finished a Mother's Day card for my sweet Mom. She'll
be 89 next month. I've been wanting to make a few more flowers
using ribbon, so this was a good opportunity. The center rosette
I glued and wrapped around my piercer. The outer ribbons I
stitched around one side and pulled the threads together
to form circles. The curly q's I made using sparkle thread
I bought by the jewelry crafts dept.To stiffen use fabric stiffener
and wrap around a thin rod. I used
a thin paint brush handle. Secure the ends with very small clothes pins
and set it aside till it all dries. When making the bow korkers
for hair bows , it's better to heat them in a low heat oven but for cards
just having them air dry works well.
Paper by Colorbox, Spellbinder fancy tags, Martha Stewart
doily edge punch and assorted leaf punches, ribbons,
pearls , Tim Holtz inks and Glossy accents here and there.
