Ribbons and bows

Happy Thursday! Not long now for the weekend. Are you looking forward to it? I am. :) I'm planning to go to the movie, watching the new 300 movie. I hope it'll be good.

It's time for a new challenge at Crafty ribbons and this time we would like to see some ribbon and bows on your creations. I doesn't get much easier than this, does it? Be sure to come play with us, because you can win an amazing prize, donated by super sweet Ali and Tony from Crafty ribbons.

Here's the card I made for the challenge ...

I am not the biggest fan of green, so I don't use it often on my cards/projects, but I wanted to do something a bit different this time. I've had those papers in my stash for quite a while so I thought it would be nice to actually put them to some use. ;) The image is from Sugar Nellie. Isn't she adorable? I coloured her with distress inks.

A friend of mine let me borrow her Memory box butterfly die so I could make some butterfly die cuts. In the center of each butterfly I put a transparent pearl. The bigger flower is Marianne design die and the yellow flowers are from my stash. For the center of the bigger flower I used a button from my stash. Gems and doilies are from my stash as well. I used 2 diffent ribbons on this card - a 25 mm grosgrain ribbon and vintage butterflies ribbon - french creme. I love the vintage butterflies collection - it includes lots and lots of beautiful vintage ribbons.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx
