Paper Therapy-November 15 2010

Hello all!! Welcome to our seventh challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous six have been SUPER fun and were seeing some really incredible designs!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week's challenge is to create to a Thank You Card or What I am Thankful layout. I chose to make a Thank you card.

  The flowers are made from two techniques: making yo-yo flowers and from gathering ribbon. 
To gather ribbon into a flower, first cut a length of ribbon to desired length. Straight stitch one edge, pull the thread until it ruffles and pull into a circle. To make Yo-Yo flowers, cut a circle of fabric, straight stitch the outer edge of the circle and gather into a circle in the center. You can stitch a button on top of the Yo-Yo flower.

  Now is your turn! Make sure to post your card or layout to the message board by midnight on Friday, November 18th. I hope that you play along with us this week at  Paper Therapy
