Just Inklined To Hop With Ribbon

Good Morning all,
It's the first Monday of the month which means it's time for the 

(If you're looking for my Ooh La La Creations post,
please scroll down to the next post!)

I am your host this time & the theme is Ribbon!
Here is what I created.

The image I've used is Kissing Robins.
I've used this image already but I love it so much I just had to use it again!
If you're in a hurry to hop on then please do, but don't foget to leave a little love
at each stop because we always have a little spot prize or two
 to give away to someone who leaves a comment

Your next stop on the hop is Nicole, whom I'm sure has created 
something awesome for you to drool over.
I don't think you'll get lost as we are still quite thin on the ground but 
here is the hop order should you want it!
If you want to know more about my card, please read on.

I used a "Vintage Linen" distress marker & flexmarkers to colour the image.
I also inked pretty much all of the paper elements with Vintage Linen distress ink.
The papers I used are from the First Edition Christmas Village stack.
The striped ribbon is from Lidl & the lace was from my stash, I
have no idea where this partcular piece came from, everything I've used
on this card has been in my stash for at least a year or two even!
It's great to have the chance to use things up!
I'm loving these muted colours & tones at the moment.

I used a grand nestie sqaure die, to cut the main DP, & used the section I cut off
for the panel at the top. The DP is actually double sided so worked really well.
The scallops were created with a punch & the embossed sentiment was cut
from a scrap of DP from the same stack.
I hope you like my card.
