Singin' In The Rain

I am delighted to announce that I have been asked to be a guest designer for Cute Card Thursday for the month of October.  The theme for this week is Lotsa Ribbon.

Card Recipe
Card Blank - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
Mo Manning Digital Image - Singin' In The Rain.
Hero Arts Stamp - Clouds.
Doodlebug Design Inc Design Paper - Autumn Kit.
Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies - Standard Oval Large.
X-Cut Embossing Punch - Botanicals Leaf.
Embellishments from own stash.
This image was coloured in using Copic markers.

Hints and Tips
The flowers were created using left over scraps of ribbons.  I stitched a line of running stitch along the edge of the ribbon and then gathered it to form the flower shape and finished it off with a brad in the middle of it.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge:  Challenge #155 Anything Goes.
Make It Monday Challenge: Challenge #109 Anything Goes.
Totally Gorjuss: Challenge #151 Punch and Die.
Crafty Creations Challenge: Challenge #190 Colours Of Fall.
