Add a Ribbon and a Bow

Iwona is the host for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and to celebrate our 7th Birthday she would like you to add a ribbon and a bow. This can be an actual ribbon and bow, part of the image or a backing paper.  This week we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons who are giving a £10.00 voucher to spend in their store, A Day for Daisies are giving a $12.00 voucher to spend on images in their online store and Crafter's Companion are giving £10.00 to spend in their store.

For my card I have used a lovely digi image from A Day for Daises called 'Christmas Flower'.  I'm entering this card into Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra 'Anything Goes as Long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: A Day for Daisies 'Christmas Flower' digi stamp
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Red mirri, white silk
Paper: Hot off the Press Carkmaker's Floral Ultimate Pack
Other: Red ribbon, red nail heads, computer generated sentiment (Harrington font)

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto red mirri and attached it to the card front.  I reduced the size of the digi stamp and typed the sentiment underneath before printing.  This was then trimmed and coloured with Promarkers.  I attached the image to red mirri card and wrapped a small piece of red ribbon around the top corner, before attaching it to the card.  I made a small bow and attached this to the centre of the ribbon.  To finish I added nailheads to the corners.
