Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 13: anything goes with ribbon

This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 13: anything goes with ribbon. This challenge is being sponsored by Stitchy Bear. I used one of their digis that were kindly provided, called 'bonnet day' and coloured with spectrum noir pens.

For the A5 card base I used a piece of pearlescent A4 card that I've had for years - bought loads at the time, used some and then the rest has been in a drawer.

Other papers and bits and pieces (mainly from Papermania kits) are offcuts. I found the ribbon in a box - haven't a clue where it came from or how long I've had it.

I followed the sketch given for Feeling sketchy 78:

  14. As a girl who loves pink I'm immediately attracted to this beautiful card for all the shades of pink you have incorporated .....only trouble is that any birthday cakes I have these days are too weighed down with candles for me to trip along as lightly and joyfully as your young lady.
