Here is my entry for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for November. And here is my non-paper floral embellishment! It has been years since I made a card with silk ribbon embroidery. I made a fun discovery: PTI cardstock is the perfect weight to embroider on. I used to have to embroider on fabric, then attach that to the card. This paper is strong enough, yet doesn't bend when the needle goes through. The leaves are cut from the leaf ribbon and attached with glue dots. See flower close-up below:

Supplies:
Patterned paper: PTI and Memory Box
Cardstock: Vintage Cream
Ink: Versamark
Cream embossing powder
Stamp sentiment: PTI Sweet Love
Ribbon: Lavender Moon
