Crafty Catz Challenge - Use Pretty Ribbon

It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz, and this week our theme is anything goes with the optional twist of "use pretty ribbon". Crafty Ribbons are sponsoring us this week, so one lucky person will be winning a great prize! We are also having a GDT call for March, so why not give it a go.

The image I have used is from Crafters Companion's Halcyon Days range, printed from a CD rom. This card is actually the one I gave to my sister, who's birthday was yesterday. This image was perfect because I have bought her a voucher to go for afternoon tea as part of her present! The dotty paper is from the For The Love Of Stamps polka dots Perfect Backgrounds Stamping Pad, and the cream one is from an old Tatty Teddy paper pad (the striped cream paper is from a cheap unbranded paper pack). I added kraft card, a die cut doily, pearls and of course some pretty ribbon. I used some lovely polka dot cream organza ribbon (by Three Kings Ribbon), and added a bow too. I distressed all the edges of the papers using a pair of scissors to give a vintage feel. The finished card is 6"x6".

I will be entering this one into the following challenges:
A Bit More Time To Craft #62 anything goes
Crafty Creations #360 anything goes
Creatalicious #133 anything goes with optional for a boy/man
