SWC Challenge #13~~ RIBBONS

Good Day Everyone!!!
It is my turn to share my ribbon feature at Sundays With Crissy

before I do....
I have some MARVELOUS News.....
Crissy and her DT invited me to stay on as a designer Permanently!!!YEAH~~~jump jump--clap clap--Yippeeeeee LOL
I said YES~~as if you couldn't guess :D ha ha

Back to business or I should say FUN for me......
I had a blast using two of Crissy's Images~~~ Her newest=="Dance of Love" combined with "Gracie's Roses"
As I printed these beautiful digi's, it took me to a fair or carnival with little ones standing around the Merry-Go-Round and trying to choose their favorite horsey to ride :)

So I made an easel birthday card!!
Ribbon frame was made with SB Borderabilities--Lotus Border petites which I laced with blingy ribbon.
They were given dimension with foam tape to very nicely frame the image
 Wow I love this image--Dance of Love~~colored with Copics, AtYou Silver Spica pen and Diamond glaze on horses eye, hooves, hearts and pole base.
I used the dot technique which I learned from Crissy~~Thanks Dear Friend :))
If you enlarge pic by clicking on it, you will see the red streaks added in tail and mane :)
Sentiment is from Bizzy Bec~~Click Here to find this one and others!!
Base of card:  Used Magnolia doohickey tag for personal message
Gracie was also colored with Copics and Red AtYou Spica on flower centers and Hairtie (hard to see)
Diamond glaze gave her shoes the patten leather look :)
Gosh she is Just the sweetest!!! 
Happpy Birthday is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and scrolling is a Studio G stamp I got at Michael's.
Stamped both with versa mark ink and heat embossed using Zing white emboss powder. Cut out with SB Labels 4 nestie and blinged edges with crystal stickles.  The flower is the centers from the SB border that was laced with ribbon.
There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month.
