Pretty in pink

Hello all,

I made this dinky little card (only 9 x 11.5cm) for the Truly Scrumptious challenge of ‘pretty in pink.’

I sewed a line of running stitch down one side of lengths of grosgrain ribbon and seam binding and pulled them tight to create the ‘flower’ layers then added a pearl brad in the centre and mounted it on a scalloped circle.  The swirls of gems were created from hand with individual gems and yes, it took quite a while to do!

Here is a close up of the embellishment;

Card recipe;
