Ribbons and Bows and a Winter Wedding

Time for a new challenge at the Cardmadfairy and the theme this time is
Ribbons and Bows.
 There are some beautiful creations to inspire you over at the Challenge and quite a few of the cards have been made with brand new images. Also there is a lovely freebie just right for all the Valentines cards we will all be making soon so pop over to the shop for a look!

My card this week for the challenge  is going to be winging it's way across the pond to the daughter of one of my good friends who is getting married in Canada. She loves to make cupcakes and so I asked Jenni if she would be able to make a new digi stamp I could use for her. I love the result and I am sure she will too. I coloured the image with my trusty promarkers using some of the snap on fine nibs on the detailed bits, aren't they great?  As my sewing machine was out I decided to try adding stitching to a card for the first time and I love the result so I will definitely be trying it again. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the ribbons and heart charm are from my stash.
