Decorated tape stand

Hello there! Nice to see you here. :) I hope you've been having a good weekso far. Mine has been pretty busy, so I am really looking forward to the weekend.

Today a new challenge started at Crafty ribbons challenge blog. We have a perfect theme for this time of the year - we want to see FLOWERS somewhere on your creation. I LOVE using flowers on my projects and I know many of you like to use them too so I hope to see lots and lots of entries in this challenge. :) And we have some flowery prize for the lucky winner too. Look ...

Aren't these buttons just too cute? And the colours. So beautiful! If you want to win a box of these fabby buttons all you need to do is to play with us at our challenge and cross your fingers - it might help. ;) And if you can't wait, you can get these at Crafty ribbons store. :)

For this challenge I wanted to create something different. So I used my old tape stand, painted it with white acrylic paint and decorated it with handmade flowers, gorgeous saddle ribbon from the Baby collection and some butterflies (these are a MS punch). I also used my boder punch, flower punch (for the small flowers), Viva decor pearl pen and Marianne design die. I saw something similar (decorated tape stand) quite some time ago when I was browsing the internet and I loved the idea and have been wanting to do it myself ever since. And now I did it. And I have to admit I am happy with how it turned out. :) And now I have a fancy shabby chic ribbon stand. Tadaaaaa. :D The pink swiss dots ribbon is also from Crafty ribbons - also from the Baby collection.

Now you probably want to see what my creatio looks like, don't you? Here it is ...

What do you think of it? I hope you like it. :) My teamies also have some awesome projects to share with you so hop to the Crafty ribbons challenge blog to see their creations. And while you are there, why not join the challenge too. ;)

And just before I go, I want to tell you about the fab giveaway that my super sweet and uber talented friend Rosie is having at her blog. She is offering a $20 certificate to the La La Land Crafts store. Awesome, right? If you want to be in the chance for drawing, hop to Rosie's blog (giveaway is in this post).

Ok, so much from me. I wish you all a wonderful day! Hugs! xx
