Penny Black challenge 31 - Pink and Brown

This weeks Penny Black's challenge is a colour scheme - pink and brown. Great - I love brown with all pastels and especially pink. I used core-dinations cardstock and Basic Grey Sugared paper. I machined round the edges of the core-dinations and lightly distressed the edges. I used pastels to colour the 'Buzz in the Air' image and matted and layered in onto three layers of cuttlebugged circles. I used three layers of ribbon - broad white satin, pink spotted grosgain and a thin white satin which I left on the top. I'm not sure about this and would greatly appreciate suggestions.

Materials
Core-dinations cardstock
Basic Grey Sugared paper
Cuttlebug and Spellbinders nestabilities
Ribbons, flower, pearl from stash
Sewing machine

Hi Rica, This card is fabulous, love the image , papers layout, everything.
But ( and I feel as though I am sticking my neck out here cos you re such a fabby card maker !! ) as you're asking for honest opinions I personally think the card would look better without the narrow ribbon!!!!!
sorry , but you did ask !!! bet all the comments after this will disagree,,,,,,,, should ve kept my thoughts to myself,,,,,,,,,,,,, :-(
Love all your cards , grovel, grovel ha ha

This is a delightful card! I love the colors! There's no way I can make any sort of judgement call on the ribbon! I'm super duper new to card making, so I always love the inspiration from everyone elses!!!

Kudos Lorraine for being honest, I think it's refreshing! I always wonder what little things could be improved in my crafts!

Love your hedgie - great take on the challenge. AND, now you're sewing as well - any chance of a dress? With ribbon, of course, which by the way I love. xoxo ikki
