Moxie Fab Classy & Elegant Challenge

Day four of the style challenge at Moxie Fab and so far I've managed to get all of them done, whew! If you're just seeing this, head on over to the blog there and join in. You still have plenty of time to get your cards finished and uploaded.

Today is "Classy & Elegant" and here is my take. Not the best photo, but we're having some wind problems outdoors and I can't get a better photo to save my life! The black paper is very shiny and satin like, so it has created a bit of a glare coupled with the satin finish ribbon.

I decided against adding a sentiment just because I felt it would be too over the top. The ribbon demands a lot of attention!

**To make the ribbon, I just folded it back upon itself and sewed a stright line behind where the flower is.
**To make the flower, I sewed a straight line on one side of the ivory ribbon and then pulled the bottom thread causing it to bunch. I added some flat backed pearls with Fabri-Tac and that's about it!

Thanks for taking a peek!
