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?

This is really pretty Di and I love the embossing and the dimensional tulips look great on top of the beautiful ribbon threader die cut layer and the lovely pink gingham ribbon and the pink clear domes are the perfect embellishments. x

Fabulous card and such a pretty bunch of tulips. That threaded ribbon looks super xx

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

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!
