May 2013 PTI blog hop

This month the PTI blog hop challenge was to build a bouquet!
 I've used Pretty Peonies, Life & May Arts satin leaves to create my bouquet.
 I love how the bouquet turned out, but couldn't help thinking it looked like it was floating. When I looked at the inspiration again I decided a ribbon 'vessel' was in order!
I apologize for not visiting all the beautiful work out there lately. It's been a busy, busy time with my family & commitments at my daughter's school. I applaud those of you that are able to fit it all in & hope you will let me in on your secret to doing it.... :)
 Here's the bouquet that was my inspiration:
Thank you so much for taking a peek! Happy Hopping! :)

May Arts + Scor-Pal!

Welcome to the May Arts & Scor-pal hop!
Today I am putting the turquoise 1.5" faux linen to work!
I started by using Mod-Podge as a stiffener & setting aside-you may be able to see the difference in texture the mod-podge gives in the picture below-
Once it was dry, I used my Scor-pal at 1/2" intervals to score the ribbon. 
 Then I accordion folded it & hot-glued it to a piece of cardstock.
 Next I scored my card base & DCWV decorative paper.
 And here it is assembled!

I'm loving how it turned out!
Now you KNOW with a hop comes a give-away! So make sure you leave a comment here, and at each stop of the hop for your chance at 3 spools of your choice AND a Scor-pal of your own! :)
Wahoo, right! :)
Next stop is Abby Henderson!
