Phindy's Place Challenge #2 - Use Ribbons

This weeks challenge at Phindy's Place is to use ribbon on your card (and an image from Phindy, of course!).It's all fun and games, really! At least for me, since I confess to experiencing certain feelings of emptiness and duress if I can NOT manage to squeeze some ribbon or lace on my cards.
I went for that adorable Sticky Elbow image, isn't she just sooo funny and real cute! Colouring was done with Copics, then I added micro beads to the cone she's holding. I decided it should be a sorbet. Pistachio sorbet, to be precise, lol.

The background was once again done with chalks and the grass with Prismas.

Yummy papers come from Cosmo Cricket Material Girl pad, I distressed them lighthandedly and did some paper pricking. The flower, lace and pearl swirl is from Prima and the ribbons from my stash. Sentiment stamps are from Whiff of Joy. And of course there were some Nestabilities labels involved, lol.


I hope you will find time and join in the fun at Phindy's Place! If you don't have any of here images yet, why not to pop in to her PCP group and pick up a freebie to start with!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - April Flowers
Dare u2 digi stamp - Flowers

Crafty Cardmakers - "Imagine if you were on a Desert Island for at least 6 months, what crafty essentials would you *need* to have with you?" Well in my case it would have to be my favorite patterned papers, lashings of ribbon, lace and glittery stuff, pearls, my Copic markers, Prismas, chalks, laptop, printer and hefty supply of Neenah cardstock. And my guillotine. Can't do without it.

Wow, that's a scary list of things I'd have to carry on my head while swimming for a life from a sinking ship! :D

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs
Annika

Annika what a great card. Awesome job on coloring and the offset of the image, gives it almost a whimsical feel. Love the way you pleated the ribbon. And let me not forget to mention that the inside of the card is just as wonderful.
