Ribbon Wreath

Hello ...

My lovely friend Jan is Guest Designing this month for one of my favourite challenge blogs
And the technique this week is Ribbon Weaving to make a Ribbon Wreath ... (very addictive) 


It is best to use thin ribbon and where possible ribbon with a pattern or another colour as it gives such a pretty effect ... I don't usually use thin ribbon so I raided my cupboard and eventually found some which had stitching on the sides ... perfect with some lovely digital paper from Astrid ...


... and a sparkly Christmas tree in the centre ...


I wanted my wreath to be the focal point and added a white bow, beads and stems to the wreath


... and some lace and a piece of the same ribbon used for the wreath below. 

I did have some patterned ribbon but only a short piece ... But I still got to use that too as a sort of decoration on some fun paper 


It looks a little like a pine cone to me ... but you can see how effective it is when you use patterned ribbon ...



On another note ... there is still no sign of sweet little Gipsy ... The little ginger stray has for the past few days decided to come into the house and goes straight to her bed upstairs ... It is quite strange as he is very timid ...  But he gets onto her bed and purrs ... Maybe he knows something we don't ... Or perhaps he's trying to tell us something ... Time will tell ...

Have a lovely Day / Evening and I will be back tomorrow ...

Thanks for stopping by

They are both beautiful!
Lovely details:)

I agree with Lynnda, brilliantly STUNNING! WOW , I will have to give it a try!

Some neighbors down the street deserted their two cats, so I've been feeding both and I'm really attached to them. But I havent seen the girl for the past few days and have called the animal shelter but no luck. I had just found a home for both too. Im praying nothing happened to her. I would have kept them, but I'm so allergic.
