And another challenge card!

As I had a birthday card to make today, I decided to go with Kristina's colour challenge again.

I am still getting myself used to the wide grosgrain ribbon. I always think it looks too bulky and in this case, I feel it has unbalanced the card. Does anyone else think this way??

This design was a weekend sketch of Beate's and it was ideal to use the SU Basics Outline wheel on. I have dry embossed the lines top and bottom using my Scor-Pal and the wording is raised with foam tape.

Jean this card is lovely!! I use to think the ribbon was too bulky too, but what I do is tie the ribbon tight when I do a knot! Maybe try that!!

Love the colors - its gorgeous!

Hi Jean! Ditto to Karens comment, I would work the bow a little more and pull it a bit tighter.

I love the colours you have used and think the card is lovely!!
