Anything Goes with Ribbon at Crafty Ribbons

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
(Actually it is Friday as I totally forgot to post it yesterday, sorry)
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?

So, onto our new challenge.
This time the challenge is:
ANYTHING GOES WITH RIBBON
So here is my project for this challenge:
Some of you will know that I recently became a Nana for the first time.
As we didn't know what my daughter was having I made two cards with the same stamp that I won on Nanaseaside's blog, thanks darling.  So a few weeks ago I showed you the Blue based card and here is the Pink Based one that I didn't need (on this occasion lol).
This gorgeous Housemouse Stamp is a joy to colour and on this one I used my copics.
The sentiment is one I had sometime ago from my good friend Lynne at Sentiments 4 You.
This gorgeous ribbon is, of course, from Crafty Ribbons and is such a delicate ribbon I almost didn't want to use it! LOL
Anyhoo, there you go folks, my Anything Goes with Ribbon card.
So sorry it is a day late, completely lost track of time this week.
Please remember to stop by the rest of the Buttons Team and have a look at their gorgeous inspirational creations.
Thanks for stopping by.
