Absolutely no calories recipe

'Absolutely no calories recipe' is the challenge on Daring cardmakers this week - the recipe is:

1 image (stamped, digital or other type)
2 pieces of ribbon
3 different papers

Robyn's Fetish digital stamps and more, a division of I did it papers, are sponsoring the challenge. DCM says: You have the chance to win either your choice of 5 digital stamps or your choice of 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set from Robyn's Fetish by entering a card for this week's challenge.

I don't know the manufacturer of the three pieces of paper I used because I received them some time ago in a swap. It's a bit difficult to see what's what now the card is put together. I started by applying the black paper with white flowers all over it, then I added the pink, black and white striped paper, adding the spotty ribbon and the striped ribbon (which almost now looks like the paper, but it is definitely a strip of ribbon). Then I cut the swirly piece from a larger piece of another paper and added over the top.

The image was stamped (this is a stamp I've had for ages - haven't a clue who is the manufacturer) and coloured with copic cerise and edged with the same colour.

This is also for:

Kaboodle 50: black and white + 1
Freshly brewed 30: black + white + one more colour
The paper variety: pink, black and white
Tellen's place: let's see some ribbon
