My SIL introduced me to a new website which is absolutely fabulous if you like to buy ribbon in more than just 1m lengths. http://www.jaycotts.co.uk/ offers a wide selection of sewing paraphernalia. Ribbons come in 20m, 25m and 30m rolls and they're not expensive. I bought two 20m rolls of 7m wide double-faced satin for just £3.67 each (which works out at about 18p per metre) and, for just 39p you can get sample cards like this...
... isn't it fab. I colour matched the colours I wanted to my copic pens, so I'm certain that my ribbon matches my chosen colour perfectly. Go check it out.
Anyhoo, onto my card today. I've made a scalloped circle easel card. I really must get myself the grand calibur, this is a little small and limits what I can do with it. I like how it turned out, but it would have been nice if it were a little bigger. I've used Krista Smith's Saturated Canary image 'Ava'. I think this is my favourite SC image so far, I really love her. She's coloured with copics and I added some glossy accent to the balloon. The papers are from my latest paper purchase Maja Design Vintage Summer. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the ribbon is from Jaycotts ;O). The crystals are from ebay and I added a couple of woodware punched butterflies. The sentiment was party of a freebie set with a magazine.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
