Embellishing the embellishment

Sometimes a project needs just a little extra something. In this case I embellished (embroidered) my embellishment (ribbon). In just a few minutes time I turned a nice enough project into something I like so much better.

After:

Grosgrain ribbon is good for me because the pattern makes it easy to space the stitches.
