The Ribbon Reel Challenge 47 'Let's Ruffle'

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I want to thank the lovely ladies over at The Ribbon Reel for choosing my card as one of Top 3 from last week's card challenge.  I am so thrilled!

This week, we were asked to create a card / project inspirerd by the colors in the photo below and include ruffles:

My card:

I took out a stamp I have not used in a very long time, a bicycle from Hero Arts - it reminds me of Spring.  The base is Whisper White, followed by a piece of purple cardstock I found in my stash.  I used the SU! Top Note Bigz as the background for the image.  On the bottom, I added a pink "ruffle" ribbon by Melissa Frances, pink cardstock, a thin pink ribbon and a purple scallop border.  I added 2 butterflies and pearls to the wheels to finish it up.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
