ABC R is for Ribbon

I will be honest this is not one of my better cards but after nights of floor walking while Henry cut 4 top teeth have taken its toll. The image is a WOJ given to me by Ellie, and I have watercoloured her in as per usual. I have crossed two ribbons, a thick pink and a think white to create half a frame for the image. The papers are from the Basic Grey Eva pack which I had yesterday for my birthday. I have cut the circles using my friskars and have distressed all the papers used using my papermania earth tones pad.
I hope you like. Please bare with me on my blog hopping as I have very limited time at the moment to craft and I am unable to get round to all my followers and people who leave comments on a daily basis. I am hoping to be able to set a side a few hours this weekend and plan to do alot of back tracking, so look out for posts on old cards as i try and catch up.

Hi Vicky, you poor thing you must be exhausted! Grace has come down with a cold today and is full of it. She spent 3 hours crying this afternoon as her nose was so blocked she could not get to sleep and she was so tired. She eventually dropped off when I took out in the buggy. She's asleep now but not sure what sort of night I'm in for! Your card is lovely by the way.
Hugs Lynsey :)

I love this card: The subtle colours on the image and the white card really make it pop out against the stronger background. Love the woven ribbons too.
