The Ribbon Reel Challenge #25

Here's the photo inspiration at The Ribbon Reel Challenge:


And here's my card:

Ribbon Reel Challenge #25

supplies: white cardstock, Dollar Tree blue dp, cuttlebug birds & swirls embossing folder, Flourishes Spring is Sprung, The Craft's Meow Fly Free, Versafine onyx black ink, prismacolor watercolor pencils, Hero Arts white art flowers, blue buttons, Michael's blue gingham ribbon


And again adding this to the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Use Your Favorite Tool.  That would be my cuttlebug, which I used to emboss the background, and cut out and emboss the shape around the stamped image.
