Home Spun

With another lovely inspiration photo over at The Ribbon Reel how could I resist this weeks challenge.

Just look at this gorgeous photo:

and the challenge is to use colours from the photo and to include burlap and ribbon.

Here is my card:

I made this card while trying to entertain my daughter on the wii which her grandparents lent her and for a 3 year old she is really good at Just Dance.  But I did get a bit sick of hearing the same song over and over.  Which she is now singing over and over!!

I have used apples as a backing paper rather than a focal point or topper and went for my favourite things, which are paper and organza flowers with just a simple sentiment.  I have added a strip of burlap, some ruffled edged ribbon and a hat pin.

Papers and sentiment are Pink Petticoat
Ribbon, hat pin and burlap are all The Ribbon Reel


  1. This is beautiful and your apples as a backing paper is delightful! Your flowers are gorgeous and I adore your stick pen! So happy you joined us at The Ribbon Reel!

  2. Your card is gorgeous Dawn - as they always are : )

  3. Stunning card, Dawn. I really LOVE it! Every element you used is gorgeous!
