My offending ribbon & Monday PICK ME UP

I issued a  Fun With Fred challenge last week, in a moment of craziness LOL!  You are to use a ribbon you blindly pick out of your stash  OR choose one that has been "perplexing" you, like colours you don't normally use, or pattern or it is just CRAZY.  It is just for fun, if you would like to "perplex yourself" grab a ribbon, make a project and post it on the FSS Group Comment Wall.    Well I chose and it took me a few days to get it together LOL.  It DOTH perplexed me!!!  The ribbon I chose is in an autumn stripe... these are colours I just don't normally use... ( look around my blog and the various assortment of pastels LOL)  Well, it came together in the end... and also leads to this week's   MONDAY PICK ME UP.  I used a paper I designed but haven't got around to working it into anything.  A "petite fleurs" patterned paper.  This pack contains 5 little flowery papers.  And can be downloaded HERE.  If you can't access, please email me and I'll try to email you the zip.

CARD DEETS:
Green background paper is ink brayered to get that soft blocky look then CB embossed.  The leaves and paper strip are sponged with distress inks.  EK Success border punches and MS butterfly stamp/punch combo, Bosskut daisy leaves die, orange stickles.  Perplexing Ribbon... no idea, a gift from a friend.  My digital petite fleurs paper in yellow orange.  I coloured the Flower with pencils/OMS.

Happy Monday!
:)*  Fred
