Moving Along With The Times (DT Card) - Challenge 126 - 'Ribbons & Bows'

Well the weeks seem to be whizzing by and can you believe it's Thursday again already? So time for another Challenge over at

This week the lovely Debs is our hostess and she has chosen the fab theme of .....

'Ribbons & Bows'

So we want to see Ribbons and Bows of some kind on your project. Remember it doesn't have to be a card, you can make whatever you wish as long as you follow the theme. 

I wanted something really cute for my friend's 50th Birthday and found this Tigger on Pink Petticoat. Isn't he gorgeous? I just want to cuddle him with that chubby tum !!! LOL The gorgeous paper is from 'Once Upon a Time' DCWV Stack. Ribbons are from the Ready-Teddy-Go Prize that I won a while back. Sentiment was made on computer.

 Colouring Medium Promarkers:-
Tigger and Flower: Tulip Yellow, Soft Peach, Peach, Honeycomb
Leaves: Meadow Green, Pear Green
Gold Stickles

I am quite pleased with how the colouring came out as the colours just seemed to all blend together really well on this one. I have no Yellow or Orange Copics yet and so returned to my beloved Promarkers. The background I created digitally on my computer before I printed out the digital image to colour.

I bought some Promarker Ultra Fine Nibs a while back and I LOVE them !!!!! there are a lot of darker Promarker shades that I love, such as Burnt Orange, Shale etc. but it really bugged me because I couldn't get into small areas without them bleeding over the lines. Well the new nibs are really good for doing very fine work such as hair etc. - they just clip on over top of your normal nib and you can easily switch back and forth. Just thought I'd say for anyone who hasn't tried them yet. 

I have decorate inside with some paper that was freebie from Bearly Mine Designs. Just added the sentiment circle. And that's about it - it's quite a 'simple but sweet' card.

We are sponsored this week by The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

and they are kindly offering this gorgeous prize .....
