Hi Everyone!
True :D here.

Today's card was done with a digi set that I illustrated!
Come visit my blog after you have strolled around this one for more details.
I did a coloring tutorial for my blog and Bonnie thought you all might like to see it here.
After you watch it, you can watch my little ribbon tutorial too!

Click on the 4 arrows in the bottom right hand corners of the viewers to watch it in full scree. Hit your "esc" key to go back to normal size.

The beautiful ribbon I used is "1/2" Lavender wrinkled ribbon" from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I have added another short video to show you how I did the ribbon treatment.
