Friday Sketchers 62

Here's a card I made for the Friday Sketchers Challenge. The sketch this week is another one that is a dream to work with and the DT have made some really beautiful cards with it.

I thought I'd try to use some of that butterfly satin ribbon that I have in my stash - I seem to have had it forever and I have all sorts of shades in it. I think I bought it and then went off it really quickly. Today I've added a line of crystal stickles for a body and I think it gives the ribbon a new lease of lift.
I took an angled photo because the card looked so flat in the top photo - but (trust me) I've got some of the foam pads showing on this one. I didn't quite manage to pick up all the glittery bits on the card though.
The image was a RAK from my friend Gina. Thanks Gina, I really do love this image.
This week Friday Sketchers are sponsored by Shimmerz! So why not hop over and get your entries into this challenge?
Hope you like it and hope you're all having a great weekend.
