365 Cards Day 57 ~ Try a Technique

Is there a crafting technique you always wanted to try, but never have?  How about one you've tried unsuccessfully that you want to try again?  Here is your opportunity...
Select new technique to try (or re-try!) and use it on your card.

I have been wanting to make my own flowers for a while since I started making cards.  So for this challenge, I made florets out of satin ribbons.  It is a simple card really.  Making the florets (or little posies?) was not as difficult as I thought (I have no sewing skills).  Did them in 2 colors and sizes, and put them together with the white flowers in the center.

On a white card base, I banded a string of baby blue satin ribbon and tied a simple knot.  Mounted the 3 florets in a column.  Stamped "Thank you" on the parchment paper and glued that in place.  This card can also be used as a wedding invitation or a congratulatory card.

This card was submitted for The Outlawz Challenges Sunday CAS Challenge April 22
