Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Ribbon

The challenge for the next two weeks over at Cuttlebug Mania is 'Ribbon' and this is my card:
I used:

- 5" x 7" white card blank - tent style

- a snippet of SU's 'Old Olive' card stock trimmed to just slightly smaller than the card front and adhered using Collall All Purpose Glue

- another snippet, this time 'Wisteria, embossed using Crafts-Too's 'Lattice' embossing folder, trimmed down slightly and adhered with Collall All Purpose glue

- the image was stamped using Memento 'London Fog' ink onto a snippet of white card. The image is SU's 'Love is Kindness' stamp - but I covered up the sentiment before inking the stamp and then removed the low tack tape so that only the bunch of tulips would stamp. Then I stamped the tulip heads onto another snippet before colouring both the main image and the additional tulip heads using Pro Markers

- next I die cut the image panel using a die from a Spellbinders set called 'A2 Fancy Ribbon Threader' die' 

- at that point I could work out how much room I had to stamp a sentiment above the ribbon and bow I wanted to add - the sentiment is from a Whimsical Designs set called 'Whimsical Fun - Vol. 1', stamped using Memento 'London Fog'

- then I threaded a snippet of pink gingham ribbon through the ribbon slots and tied a little bow before adding the panel to the card

- finally, cut a few extra tulip heads and popped them onto the image with thin sticky pads before adding just a few little pink clear 'domes'

That's my DT card for Cuttlebug Mania - why not come and join in HERE. This fortnight we're sponsored by Digi Scrap Kits (loads of lovely Clip Art to be had!).

I'm sure a few of you are aware that Lucy and some of our other much loved playmates suffer from debilitating ME/CFS and other related illnesses. If you're fit and full of energy today - cherish every moment, oh, and why not wear something blue too?

  12. Super card, Di. The tulips are fab and the threaded ribbon is perfect. I missed the significance of the 12th of May though I'm sure I was wearing blue jeans on the day. I have friends who suffer from ME and my heart goes out to all who have this debilitating condition. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  13. I love gingham, it's always so cheerful. This is a lovely way to use it.

  14. This is such a pretty car. The image is beautiful and I love your colour choices here. That Memento London Fog gives such a wonderfully muted look!
