Creative Belli Challenge #92

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use flat embellies....flat ribbon (no knots or bows), flat flowers, felt, sewing, get the idea. We also have a sketch for you to use!!!
Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!
My first card used stamps from Darcie's set called Create from Stampers Dream. They were stamped on the Webster's Pages dp and sewing was done around the background layer. The flourish from the same set was stamped on the Pink Pirouette cardstock in the background, the scallops were made with MFT's Die-namics dies, and the flowers and leaf were made with Stampin Up! dies. The polka dot ribbon finishes it off.

This card is also for a few other challenges:
1. Inky Impressions - F.L.O.W.E.R.S. - I picked flowers and stitching
2. My Time to Craft Challenge - bright colors
3. The Crazy Challenge - it's a girl thing
4. Ooh LaLa Creations - bBright and cheerful
5. The Crafty Pad - something hanging over the edge ( the leaf and flower at the botton)
6. Stamp Something - 2 of something (I have 2 flowers)

Stamps: Darcie's Create, Rubbernecker Script Background for the top flower

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Black, Ruby Red, Websters Pages dp
Ink: Versafine Onysx Black, Ruby Red
Accessories: MFT's Die-namics dies, Stampin Up! Dies, Sewing Machine, Ribbon, Hole Punch

I had so much fun with this sketch that I just had to make another card. This one used Rubbernecker Fashion Inchies and the Fashion Icon #456 set. The inchies were stamped with Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, and PTI's Perfect Match Vintage Cream. The patterned paper from Sassafras and the ribbon finished it off. Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Kraft, Sassafras dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Vintage Cream
Accessories: Ribbon
