Marvelous Monday! Celebrate Fall and Thanksgiving

Good Morning everyone!

It is Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images. The air is becoming crisp and the leaves of the trees are changing colors. Its the perfect time to celebrate fall and start thinking about Thanksgiving. This week at Shelly's Images, we are featuring the image "Pilgrim Girl." Available for a special price today only in the Shelly's Images store. Hurry over get it for yourself at the special price, before it's too late.

Check out Shelly's Images blog for creative inspiration from the design team, using today's featured image, Pilgrim Girl.

And now for my card. I used the sketch from Creative Inspirations, for my card layout. Of course, I am using Pilgrim Girl, from Shelly's Images, colored with Promarkers. I used sponging around the image to add color and remove any white from the image. I've had this gorgeous fall ribbon for a long time now. I received it in a ribbon swap and had no idea what to do with it, since I don't usually use ribbon this wide. Once I seen this image, I felt like it would be perfect for this ribbon. The image is pop dotted onto the ribbon, for 3D effect and dimension. The background paper is a scrap from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I have a little of that super wide ribbon too and it is always difficult to know exactly how to use it on cards. Your use is wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration.
