We have some gorgeous inspiration from the Ribbon Reel Challenge this time - it's called Shabby Autumn and was chosen by Debbie. You are instructed to create a project and include flowers. ribbon, and sheet music. I hope this isn't cheating, but I am a firm believer that colorful leaves are fall flowers! My sheet music is in the background and on the pretty ribbon wrapping it all together on the front. I mimic'd the cone in the photo by folding a doily and stuffing it with colorful stamped leaves and a spray of "berry" beads from the wedding shoppe in the craft store. I switched up the traditional fall colors in the photo to add a little element of surprise. I really love seeing something "unexpected"
Special thanks to Cathy Weber for being brave enough to let me use one of her stamp sets for this one. She paid the ultimate price - the crippling of her beloved matching die set when they decided to shift as they slid thorough my die cut machine. I think I have too many shims!! Time to start thinking about a new cutter!!
