Less Is More Challenge - Ribbons

Hi everyone!  Today my card is for this weeks challenge over at Less Is More where the challenge is to use either buttons, or ribbons.  This wasn't a hard desicion for me, as I love to work with ribbons.
To make my bow and flowers, I used white ruffle edge ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

To make the flowers you will need approximately 15cm (6inches) of ruffle edged ribbon, fold the ribbon in half width ways, so that both ruffle edges are brought together.  Do running stitches along the full length of the folded edge, then pull to gather and secure with a few back stitches.  Now join to form the flower and attach to your card. The flourish is from Cheery Lynn Designs - Tropical Flourish, and the sentiment was computer generated.
