TLT Challenge - Ribbons

Time for our second challenge over at Totally Ladybug Crafts challenge blog and this week our challenge was chosen by the lovely Anita and it is RIBBONS. Simple! I set myself the task of making a ribbon flower. I tried to do the long stitch by hand but my knot kept slipping through the ribbon, my eyesight is not the best for repeatedly threading that tiny needle, so I gave up and went to my sewing machine. I added a cardboard circle and a button to the centre. I used the same ribbon for a board. The papers are from a Nitwit collection. The image is POSH SHOPPER NIKKI which you can get here. I coloured her with copics and promarkers this time. The sentiment is also available HERE.
Medium - copics and promarkers
Embellishments - button, flower, ribbon, glitter, sewing machine
Papers - Nitwit collection

Hope you all get time to enter our challenge this week. Remember you don't have to use a Ladybug crafts Ink stamp to enter but we all squeal with happiness when you do!!
