MTTI05- Apron Inspiration

Well it's that time of the week for another of Lauren Meader's My Time to Create Inspiration Challenges. This week she provided us with the photo below. I instantly thought of my Grandmother and all her aprons that she wears. I decided to simply use the colours and the idea of an apron for my card.
Here is my take on the challenge.

I thought about the ruffles and lace you often find on the bottom of aprons. So I used one of my Martha Stewart's punches to create my frill at the bottom of the card. I then covered the seam with some scrap ribbon I had in my bin. I then decided to cut a top note die in half to represent those little pockets you often find on aprons. I lined the top of the top note using some thin pink ribbon. I used PTI's Guide Lines to create a pattern on the pocket, added some buttons and a sentiment from MFT and there you go.

Ingredients "Apron Inspiration":
Stamps: PTI Guide Lines; MFT sentiment
Paper: PTI Spring Moss; SU Tempting Turquoise; (Top Note was some blog candy I won, so not sure the paper colour)
Ink: SU Rose Red
Accessories: Martha Stewart Punch; scrap piece of ribbon; thin pink ribbon; buttons; embroidery floss,
