LIM Recipe, challenge 25 :0)




Hi crafty people! Lovely to see you here. It's been a bit cold here today, I've been busy but chilly, tonight I've played with ribbon for the LIM 25th challenge
Gorgeous examples over at LIM by Chrissie and Mandi . If you haven't had a go yet, join in, everyone's so kind :0) This week it's ...............






a recipe a
BUTTON OR RIBBON 
(or plurals thereof)




I don't often use ribbon or buttons so for now this little card sits here all on it's own.
I used PTI stamps from Mat Stack 2 set and some paper from Craftwork cards, the Vintage rose set.
 I made 5 small holes and threaded the beige ribbon through the first and last using the middle 3 for the thin black ribbon to capture and pucker the beige. It's uneven but that's how I wanted it :0)
One small Swarovski gem to finish and I'm done. Thank you for visiting, Gay :0)
