Charisma Cardz - Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon

Morning, I am back again today with another card :)

...... and todays card is for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz which is 'Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon'.  We are sponsored this week by Crafty Emmas Store and Digi-Doodle Shop, so 2 fabby prizes and well worth playing along.

Now I thought for this theme I would have a bash at ribbon weaving.  Using the MS punch made it really quick and easy, as I didnt have to worry about keeping the spacing even, or keeping the ribbon straight. ;)  

The image is a gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp, which I have had for ages, so thought it was high time I used it! :) lol.  I hand stitched First Edition paper and just added Card Candi, MS butterflies and also used glossy accents and glitter on the 'bloons'.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Lili's Little Fairies - Ribbon & Lace
The Stampman Challenges - Colours of Spring/Easter
Bling it On - Shades of Lilac
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Spring Colours
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Stitches
Simon Says Stamp - Special Girl
Crafty Creations - Stripes
Passion for Promarkers - Female Relative - One of my many nieces will get this ;)

Brilliant thinking with the MS punch for the spacing & I love the way you used different widths of ribbon for the weaving. The colours are gorgeously soft & I love your balloons with the real thread - unless my screen is lying in varying lavender shades.
