Here is my card....
I left it a little late to make my card, hence the dark photo taken this evening. I've been suffering with my second cold within 2 weeks, plus my hubby is suffering with severe tooth ache. I'm hoping it's related to the cold he gave me and not the root canal work he recently had done! Emergency appointment needed in the morning for him!!
I was thinking of cheating and making a CAS card but changed my mind after flicking through my stamps and found this cute Gorjuss image, Little Foxes. I dug out my Promarkers and got colouring. Once I'd coloured my image, I found some matching papers, although I have no idea where they are from. The simple sentiment is from WMS stamped in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.
I handcut my image, adding an adhesive pearl heart to her pocket and an orange resin flower to her hat. I'm really pleased with my colouring, I'm still learning but enjoying any improvements I make. Ilayered the papers and added a paper doily behind the image. Finishing with a little button twine bow, a couple of roses and some white crochet lace.
(* just realised I forgot to include a button on my card - sorry Zuzana!)

Here is my card...
I decided to checkout Pinterest for some 'rainbow' inspiration and found so many beautiful cards. I decided to use strips of ribbon on this card, of course in the colours of the rainbow.
I'm lucky enough to have a huge selection of ribbons at my fingertips to choose from. I decided to use a different type ribbon for each colour. I managed to use 12 different types; red pom pom trim, red twill, orange mesh, orange mini ric rac, yellow gingham frill, yellow burlap cord, celery green stripe twill, green grosgrain, blue satin, blue velvet, purple gingham, purple stitch grosgrain.
I created a quick flower from the yellow gingham ruffle ribbon and added a a red tea rose and light violet cherry blossom, along with a blue candy stripe button and red polka dot button. The card looked a bit bare in the middle so I decided to add a kraft butterfly using my PTI die. The sentiment is also from PTI.
