New Ribbon Flower and Mojo Monday 187

I have been hard pressed to make it to my craft room the past couple of weeks, so was very happy to complete this card today. Actually, I am more excited about this new flower that I created than the card. When I was putting away my organdy ribbon after my organdy flower tutorial, I started playing around with the ribbon and came up with a multi-petalled flower. I recreated it in satin ribbon as well and that is how I ended up with this beautiful sunflower. I hope to have a tutorial ready for you sometime this week.

The inside of the card reads 'You bring sunshine into all of our lives - Happy Mother's Day'
