I managed one

Yes, I've managed to make a card - I just had to make sure that I didn't turn my head too quickly. I've had the image coloured in since about Monday but then as my vertigo got worse I had to give up on the idea of crafting for a while. My card is an ivory 8x8 by Craft UK. The image is by Stitchybear and I coloured him with Promarkers before matting on to a piece of red Mirri card. Three pieces of red Card Candi are top right. I left the ivory card blank as the backing for this image - I think the image looks great without any fussy backing paper. I used a length of red velvet ric rac ribbon down the panel on the right.

I scanned my card as it was very dark and dismal and I thought my photography wouldn't be good enough.
My card is for The Ribbon Girl challenge of red, black and cream
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes, I used my new Ivory 8x8 cards
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes - using new stash as above
