A Pumpkin Shaped Card with Shabby Bow

Hello, all of you ribbon lovers!

Today I have a cute pumpkin shaped card to share with all of you. It's actually part of a gift set. I'll be sharing the other portion with all of you next week.

My husband and sons will quickly agree with me when I tell you that I save even the smallest ribbon snippets. (I save LOTS of neat things to use on my projects, but that would be enough for another post entirely! grins!)

Have you ever cut the tail from one side of a bow that was just a smidge too long?  Yes, I save those. Or maybe you have a piece a few inches long from the beloved piece of crochet trim that started out many yards long, but you've been using portions and parts on specials projects.

I keep all of those pieces on my craft desk so that they can come to life again in what can easily be called 'shabby bows'.  Just gather the small pieces and tie them into your bow.  It's so easy to do, but adds such a pretty, shabby chic look to your project!
Here I have used the Autumn Diagonal Stripe Grosgrain to tie pieces of  Silky Crush Olive ribbon and Tangerine Shimmer Satin with Gold.  I also added a variety of flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts - cosmos, 10mm open roses, and 15 mm open roses.

You can find more information about this card on my blog, "Just Coffee Please..."

Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll see you next week with the rest of this gift set. :)
