Ribbons And Bows

Good morning all on a rather chilly but beautiful Autumn day. The sun is shining and I can see the trees in their Autumn coats from my window - heaven!
It's Friday again and we have a new challenge over at Polka Doodles which has been chosen by Emma. She would like to see your creation with Ribbons/ Bows and I rather think the DT has been making a lot of cards with Nikky's new mini CD, Pretty Sweet, which we all love so much.

Here's my card:

I really love the patchwork look at the moment and of course, it's an ideal way to use up those scraps of paper left over from other projects. I had quite a few bits after making some samples up for Nikky and I've used them here.
I cut out squares of the 3 papers, then trimmed them with pinking scissors and added faux stitching by piercing holes and then going round with a brown fine liner pen. I added these to a kraft card blank. I added the cute Amelia image cut out to an oval shape on a matching mat of scrap pink dotty paper. To finish I simply added a big ribbon bow and a sentiment from the CD cut out with a scallop circle Nestabilities die.

Can't wait to see all the entries as it's bound to be a popular theme. Do pop over to the challenge blog to look at the DT inspiration too as they've really outdone themselves with this one!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - In Stitches
Do You Stack Up? - Use Your Scraps
Meljens Designs - Use A Ribbon
Whimsy Inspires - Punches And/Or Die Cuts

Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
