March 23 - Using Ribbon -My Bestie Aussie DT Challenge

Hey Everyone, well this has been a very stressful time for my family, as my husband's mother passed away  on March 20 and it has been a sad time for us all.  I had my image colored, so all I had to do was design the card layout and put it together which was such a blessing to me in two ways, one the image was colored, and two, it took my mind of off things while I was working on finishing it.    

As I said, the challenge this month for the My Bestie Aussie DT is using ribbon.  Let me give you some advice (LOL) do NOT buy ribbons that are not the same on both sides when you want to make a big bow.  I found this beautiful purple ribbon that was glittery and thought ohhhh that is exactly what I want to use and I do love the way it finally turned out.  However.  making a bow with this ribbon was a challenge in itself.  Trying to twist the ribbon to make sure the glitter side was always showing took me forever to do.  I kid you not when I tell you it took me a good hour or more with many restarts to get the ribbon tied correctly.  It usually takes me a couple of minutes or less to do a ribbon.  Sooooo no more ribbon for me that design or glitter is only on one side.  LOL  

I was pleased with how the card turned out and I hope that you all like it too.  

This cute image is a Sherri Baldy image and is called Banna Pie Pom Pom Girl and can be found HERE.
I absolutely adore her as I of course do all the My Besties images.  LOL  It is so hard for me to pick a favorite.  

Image was colored with Distressed Ink Markers and papers were  from some of my on hand stash.  
Flowers are my favorites of all - Wild Orchid
