Ribbon Art Rose Card

Lovebug Creations has a challenge right now to create flowers using their ribbon.  And heaven knows I have a stash of that ribbon!  So this is what I created.  I totally winged the whole process, but LOVE how it turned out!
I used patterned paper from Echo Park's Beautiful Life 6x6 pad.  The doily die and the stamp I used are from My Craft Spot.  I inked around the patterned paper and the doily with brown chalk ink.  Now on to the ribbon creations!  I started out making this rose out of the Kisses color of ribbon.  To make it, I cut a 2" circle out of chipboard and covered it in 1/2" red line tape so it would be super sticky.  I just started at the center and bent the ribbon in 1/2 with the bent edge down and made a tight roll of ribbon.  Then I pressed that down in the center of the circle base and made looser circles of the ribbon around it.  I would turn the ribbon every so often to make it appear that there were petals on the rose, but I kept the ribbon folded in 1/2 the whole time.
 I used the Envious ribbon for the leaves and adhered them under the rose.  Of course, I couldn't just leave well enough alone, so I twisted some Hugs ribbon into two twigs and used Washington White ribbon to make small buds on those twigs.  It gave those twigs a pussy willow-ish appearance.  I used lots of glue dots on this card for all of the ribbon.
This picture is to show you how flat the card still is!  It is still easily mailable even though there is a big flower on it :)

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
