Anniversary Season

Hi All,

Its Anniversary season in our family, I am not quite sure what it is about March but we all chose that month to get married in ... Including myself, LOL!! ... so I am on a mission to get all the cards made on time.

This one is so far out of my comfort zone!!! ..... I normally cant cope with ribbons at all, I love them on everyone else's cards but for some reason I cant get them to work for me .... these ones I have beat into submission with a stapler, think this may be my new secret weapon!! The reason I have pushed myself out my comfort zone is this card is for my Auntie and she loves ribbon and fuss!!

I have used 2 images from Saturated Canary, and have colored it all up with my W9 copic markers, and then added a watercolour background. I have stitched the edges with gold thread and used some frantage. The papers are DCWV- Blackcurrant stack. I have die cut flowers using a heartfelt creation stamp & co-coordinating die set. Then I have rummaged in my neglected ribbon and flower box to get embellies to co-ordinate.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:
