Ribbons Every Which Way

 Supplies:  Papermania Ribbon, buttons from stash, SRM sentiment 
sticker in white, machine stitching, Anita's kraft card blank.

Paperplay Challenges day and this week the challenge is "Ribbon every which way" and we are kindly sponsored by the Ribbon Girl.

I used ribbon scraps from the "same family" and stitched them directly to the kraft cardstock.  Then I added buttons to the top so they look like flowers.  I adhered the ribbon and hey presto - clean and simple (well... relatively!) card done.

I wanted to show you what you can do with some ribbon scraps - hope you have a few minutes to check out what my teamies made here.
