Ruffled ribbon flowers

I can't believe I've never tried these ruffled ribbon flowers before. I've seen them many times and always admired them, but for some reason never tried them myself. Well, you all may be seeing these more often, because I love them! The Papertrey Ink ribbon is particularly easy to ruffle because it already has a stitched edge, and all I did was work both ends loose and start pulling the threads. With the other ribbons I had to sew a little bit of stitching with a needle and thread. Didn't take long at all though, because you don't need to be precise to get 'ruffling'.
The background of the card base was stamped with the Giga Guidelines and the smaller Guidelines background sets from PTI. I love making my own backgrounds, they are so much fun.
That's all for today, thanks so much for visiting!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink
