Monochrome Challenge....

Good Morning everyone!

Today we launch our second challenge over on the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop blog. It's my lovely team mate Mina's turn to choose this month and she came up with one of my favourites  - MONOCHROME.

I decided on White for my colour and made a little gift set trio.

I really enjoyed making these, I bought this embossing folder recently and I just love it especailly teamed with the little pearls ( I get through packets and packets of them!!). I actually had this pattern on my wedding dress bodice with little individual pearls sewn on over 22 years ago, maybe that's why I like the folder so much.

I altered the gift bag first, I made the roses using my Rose Creations Spellbinders dies (another favourite) and then added the little butterfly for interest and finished off with a hat pin and lots of white seam binding and a little organza bow tied onto the handle.

Next I made a matching tag with a few offcuts, a small butterfly and more white seam binding. 

Lastly the card,  I cut out the circle with a nestie die and then mounted the card on foam pads to give a bit of dimension and added a couple of butterflies and another rose but no ribbon or seam binding as I though it would have been a bit too much.

I hope you will come and join us for the challenge there is a lovely prize of pretty ribbons and other goodies on offer.
