bunnies and ribbon

ok, so all modesty aside... i think this might be the cutest thing i have ever made. like ever.

you might remember that i used to be a ribbonista for mayarts, a fantastic ribbon company. i was one of the 12 women who were tasked with creating tutorials on their blog using their ribbon. in fact, a lot of the tutorials on this site were created during this time. well, even though i am no longer a ribbonista, i still love looking through their blog. a few weeks ago, a challenge was posted to create something using the retro palette of ribbon that was preselected. you had to email them your idea and they picked 20 people to move forward. i was one of the ones picked and anxiously awaited my ribbon in the mail. i knew right away that i wanted to create an easter scene with pom pom bunnies and the addition of ribbon. the colors were just perfect for it.


mr. bunny sports a yellow ribbon bowtie...

while mrs. bunny is wearing a sweet skirt out of the coral scalloped grosgrain.

i used 4 different ribbons along with vintage thread spools, a thimble, miniature paper roses, glitter and buttons. and i am in LOVE!

hopefully i will win this challenge, but even if i don't, i truly had soooo much fun bringing something from my imagination out into the world. i hope you guys enjoy it as much as i do.
