Let's see your ribbons

Hi, this week at Divas By Design we'd love to see all your glorious ribbons, so a nice easy challenge this week and we are sponsored by ...

So I decided to challenge myself and make a ribbon cupcake (especially for my mum), there are lots of great tutorials around blogland so after reading lots of different ones I was all set and using cream coloured ribbon for my main frosting and then decorating with small ribbon bows and glittered flowers from PM capsule collection.  (I think next time I'd use a slightly narrower ribbon for the size of my polstyrene ball)  The cake case and stand are made from pieces of DCWV Natural Stack and then I decorated the stand with more of the flowers and some liquid pearls.  Really pleased with how this turned out and will probably make some more for special occasions.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks #176 ~ Bows
Fussy and Fancy Friday #105 ~ Monochromatic
Allsorts #241 ~ Ribbon (although I have used bows the frosting is a length of ribbon)
Challenges 4 Everybody #37 ~ Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs ~ Add Texture
