Polkadoodles Challenge #5 or #6 (not sure)

I decided to spread my wings and enter some more challenges just to keep my hand in and it is always good to try new things isn't it?? Eveyone nod your head yes!! The Polka Doodles challenge blog had a sketch to follow this week but there were other rules as well. . . it had to be landscape, you could not have real ribbon only paper ribbon, you had to colour the image yourself - it could either be a stamped image or a topper and you could use whatever you liked to colour the image with. I pretty much stuck to the challenge with it all including paper ribbon not fabric, although I did not have any paper ribbon so I made some myself using the same cardstock as it had a white core and my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF and then sanded the dots to show the white. . .made it look like polka dotted ribbon.

Well I hope you like it.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
