Ribbon Border Challenge 2

I spent yesterday cutting out leaves and colouring the edges for my picci so thought I would have a break for a while before starting to wire them, which takes forever and is soo messy.

And what better way to take a break than enter a challenge. Another new technique for me from The Next Level, ribbon Borders. Have to say though although I like the finished effect I did kinda get a tad het up whilst trying to do it. On my first attempt I cut the slots for the ribbon too close to the edge and after struggling to get all the ends in I broke the last corner. duh! You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks! I didn't learn and did the same thing again.
But the good news was that I changed my mind at this time and changed my backing paper to thicker card which I sprayed with both Olive Vine Glimmer Mist and Aqua Lagoon Cosmic Shimmer Mist. The gorgeous image is one from Donna, which I coloued with Copics as is the yellow ribbon. Flowers and leaf are from stash. All in all I was quite pleased how this turned out.
