Dare U to use Ribbons!

Hi folks!
Think you may need your 'Sunnies' for this card. I decided to go for bright and colourful (which fits in nicely with the theme over on Colour Create). This weeks 'Dare' on Dare U to digi Stamp is Ribbons. I started off by just wanting to use the tiny ribbon bows (yes they are hand tied ;o) in Bonnie's hair... would have been a bit 'spot the ribbon' so I added the larger one too.
The gorgeous papers I used for this card are by Imaginisce, quite an old collection so I'm not sure if it's still widely available (I'm a bit of a hoarder) Bonnie and Daddy are available here. The scalloped card is by Craftwork cards. I cut the scalloped, funky foam frame using my Nestabilities. All the flowers are cut from one of the Imaginisce papers. I curled, inked and stacked them up using glue gel. The leaves are a Woodware punch. Bonnie and Daddy have been coloured in using Copic Markers.
My fellow DT have come up with some fabulous makes for this challenge. Do hop on over and be inspired. Hope you can join in. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Have a great weekend...I will... 2 days of solid crafting at The Craft Extravaganza, Lingfield. Wall to wall desmonstrators and lots of crafty lovely jubbliness!!!!
Ciao for now!
