Ribbons and bows - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning everyone!

It's Saturday once again, and that of course means a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'! This week, the theme is ribbons and bows!
So of course my thoughts went to girlie cards, and from there on to LOTV and pink, and this is what I eventually came up with:

The flowery ribbon was one I chanced upon at a car boot sale, and the bow is seam binding from the Ribbon Girl. Some WOC flowers and Fernli designs wooden corner and some pearls to enbellish, and finally a metal bow charm, which you can just see a teeny bit of under the large flower in the bottom left, lol.
There was alltogether a little too much pink for my liking, so I used a little cream paint to add some interest here and there, and break up the unending pinkness!

Now it's your turn to join in... We're being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl, so you'll not want to miss out!

And I'd like to add this card into the Ribbon Girl Lovely Lili challenge!

Have a fantastic weekend!

That image is a cutie. Love the coloring and embellishments. Love how you muted some of the pink. Really gives the card more character and a hint of vintage. - Jim

My thoughts turn to pink, girly and LOTV a lot too! And I think you can never have too much pink, although I do like the dabs of paint to add to the vintage feel :-)

Big hugs, Kat x
