Ribbon Rosettes...sigh..I love them!

Pirouette Pink card base, little hearts are first stamped with Frenchy saying from new Rooster Hostess set onto Pink Pirouette. paper, then punched out with new 3 Heart punch and adhered to card front, strip of Riding Hood Red Textured paper, strip of Candy Lane striped, scallop punched out image. and the ribbon rosette behind that.

Take a 12" long pc of wide ribbon (Pink Pirouette 1 1/4' ribbon) and do a running stitch along one edge the whole length. Gather it up til it forms a circle and stitch together. I put Tombow glue around the edge, then dipped in glitter.
