Ribbons

The challenge over at the Scrummy Stash Cafe this week is to use ribbons. I've got a huge box of ribbons but isn't it always the way that I never have exactly the right shade I need... so I go and buy more! I just can't resist them... a metre of this, a metre of that...and I must have some of that one... it's like buying pick and mix sweeties! And then there are the 'special' ribbons, the lush velvets, the sparkly edged ones, the pretty printed ones... beautiful to look at and stroke but oh so hard to actually cut up and use!!! I did intend to grit my teeth and use one of my 'special' ribbons on this card... but wouldn't you know it, I didn't have exactly the right shade so I used plain satin ribbon instead!
I tried to make it a bit more interesting by twirling the tails on the bow :-)))

Paper by Brenda Pinnick, stamps by Magnolia and See-D's, Prima flowers
