It's the third Sunday of the Month which means....Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge time !
The gorgeous inspirational photo is from Floral Accents

Then there's the prizes...

from the very generous LOTV ladies to spend in their online shop

and a gorgeous Lavender Mini Kit from the Ribbon Girls.

My wooden spool pin cushion was inspired by this beauty made by lovely teamie Vicky.

I painted a wooden spool with white acrylic paint, covered it with burlap and lace. Then made a cushion from felt and toy stuffing which I glued in place before decorating with felt flowers and pearls.  Threaded some buttons onto ivory button twine tying it in place with a tea dyed label and scissors charm.

The design team have some fabulous creations to inspire you, check them all out here.

The challenge runs until Saturday June 2nd at 9PM (UK time), we look forward to seeing all your wonderful projects!
