Oooh I've tried soooo hard!

do you think it's worth it????

Hello blogworld,

Ribbons anyone?  I'm sure you probably know it's Saturday but did you know it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin?  This week we'd like to see your ribbon/s on your card - along with the stamping, of course!

Our weekly sponsor, offering a fab prize is:

Our monthly sponsor, with a £10 voucher:
Now I had meant to go to town on the ribbons but I spent soooo long stamping / masking / positioning  then sooooo long colouring that I almost forgot about the ribbon - so there's just the one!

I'd also so ran out of puff that I just left it fairly plain.  Just hope all that effort was worth it!!

Front shot:

The arty farty:

I used:
Stamps (a lot!) (all C C Designs)
Swiss Pixies: Butterfly Fence
Swiss Miss - Rosalie
Sugarplums - Tulip Trevor

My Mind's Eye - miss caroline

Wot no!

Anything else?
Gems and ribbon from my stuff
Craftwork Cards - sentiment

I think the next card I make will be a tad easier!!!

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Cupcake Craft Challenges: 226 - Make a Scene

Sketch n Stash: Challenge 105 - I hope this one is OK - I slightly moved / combined the sentiment with the circle on the sketch.  My stash are the stamps - well over 2 years old!!

Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Love/Romance/Anniversay

I love Promarkers: Challenge #152 - Anything Goes (2nd entry)

Inky Chicks: Challenge #2 - Becky's Bingo Grid (I picked Ribbon, Image, Pearls)
