Anything Goes w/Ribbon......{3GJ Challenge #19}

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is a happy day over here....
I am hosting the new challenge over at the
this week's challenge is~ 
Anything Goes w/Ribbon
This week's challenge will be open for 3 weeks, May 24th~ June 13th so plenty of time to create and share!!
Our challenge is being sponsored by
3 Girl JAM
with a $10 Gift Certificate to  3GJ
and a Guest Designer Spot
Awesome prizes for sure!!


So here is the card I made....
I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch as well as the Bingo Challenge over at Catch the Bug

and came up with this,
Just in time for the Holiday weekend....
I took the Mojo Monday sketch and flipped it on it's side...I just love how this turned out (if I might say so myself...LOL)
The Bugaboo image I used was AKV Girl Celebrate and was last week's freebie image. I am sure you all know by now what a HUGE Bugaboo fan I am...make sure to check out their blog...there is a new freebie listed every Friday!
Here is a close-up of the image that I ended up coloring using my copic markers....not much coloring needed to be done since it is such a small image. I also added some diamond stickles to the stars which "match" the glittery brads I used as embellishments.
And here is the gorgeous Navy crinkle ribbon from 3GJ! It is a new release and you can find it in the Navy Bundle. In following with my Red/ White and Blue theme I also added one of my favorite colors of Trendy Twine and a must have for the upcoming few months....
Could not leave out my machine stitching (which is actually part of the Bugaboo challenge)

What do you think???
