Me and CAS!!!! - with Crafty Ribbons

Morning all

Today is the next challenge over at 

The challenge this week is sort of special as it is Crafty Ribbons Birthday so the theme is

Birthday and Ribbon

so do hope over and take a look at the fabulous sponsors and of course all of that delicious inspiration from the design teams, yes we have all joined together for this one

I chose to use one of the images provided by one of the sponsors
called Birthday Ewe

and I went with a CAS card, I know not me, well it started off CAS but well I had to use some Ribbon, so it started to swiftly turn into one of my normal cards, as I could not help myself.

So here it is
I made an aperture card, I know so different for me, but think the image called for it, see below I took a photo of it closed
I used my copics to colour the image, one of my pierced MFT dies to make the aperture and also to cut out the image.  I added some orange ribbon, and then took it off (so loud, and did not work well at all) finally I settle for this 

Monochrome Ribbons - 25mm Sheer Silver/Black

I think this ribbon works perfectly, soft enough to fold around the aperture and beautiful to make the triple bow out of, I also gave the bow extra tales, before adding a Hobby House Rhinestone Fancy Button and a few pearls that I found at the bottom of my pearl draw, I could not find any other black ones (mental note must by some black pearls)

Here is the card open so you can see the aperture

As always I would like to welcome all of my new followers and thank all of my wonderful visitors, who leave a comment so that I can hop over and see your own fabulous work.

Don't forget I still have my WRS candy on offer in the sidebar, just a few more days to go :)
