I Love Ruffles!

I have always been a BIG fan of ruffles, and I am not referring to those potato chips that are great for dips! Ruffles on dresses, blouses, skirts, shoes, sweaters, and anywhere else you can think to put one! One of my favorite things to add to a layout, card or sewing project is a ruffled ribbon, so cute!

So when Cath over at Moxie Fab did a post about ruffles as a trend and issued a new design challenge, I was all over that!

First I started with the idea that it would be fun to try to do a Christmas card and that a ruffled ribbon would look great as a tree! So I used my sewing machine to stitch the ribbon onto the darling, glittery, polka-dotted background and gathered it as I stitched along. A chip star with some Ranger Distress Crackle paint on it and a stamped sentiment from the "Night Before Christmas" set that Julia designed for the Rummage Bin. Easy and so fun!

So how do you feel about ruffles?
