Pile It On! Challenge - 2 or More Ribbons

This week's Pile It On! Challenge is sponsored by our very own Corinna, who has recently started her own company called The Ribbon Carousel...so in honour of that, our challenge this week is to use:

'2 or More Ribbons'

(I'm not sure of the prize info...but will add that here later)

I've used a Lili of the Valley image on my card called 'Little Girls - Swing Time', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The spotty paper is from the 'Wild Asparagus' collection by My Mind's Eye, the flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima, and the button and ribbons have been in my stash so long, I can't remmeber where they came from. To give a 'vintage' feel, I inked and distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. Oh...and the scalloped card blank is by Craft UK...I picked up a pack yesterday in The Range.


Here are the challenges that I've Piled On!:
