The Hobby House challenge - Ribbon

Today is my day to show off my challenge piece for the ribbon challenge over at The Hobby House.  With all the ribbon available in the shop took ages to decide on what to create but then I spied a polystyrene ball and that was that!!!  I used 3" wide cream ribbon to create the ruffle effect by sewing a long running stitch down the centre of the ribbon (8 metres) and pulled it to create the ruffle and pinned it in place with small pins into the polystyrene ball.  Added some little ruffle flowers, wrapped pink ribbon round the wooden stem and here it is.....

Thanks for looking
