This is my Design Team card I created for this fun challenge.   I realize that it is a little different from my usual style but it's good to try new things!   Kathleen, a dear friend of mine gave me some fun acrylic discs to use to create ribbon or twine flowers.  It has double sided adhesive on it.   I started twisting some purple ribbon around in a loose fashion and crated this rose.   I cut a free-hand tag and stamped a birthday sentiment.   I added some bling for a stem and ....   there you have it!     It is so much fun.  think I will try twine next time!   

I am linking this this the following challenges: 
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes 
The Outlaws: Twisted Thursday - Ribbon or lace and a birthday sentiment!
