Girly card

I've made this card for the new challenge Something for the girls on Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge. Tilda was stamped for me by my friend Sarah thanks I have coloured her with promarkers and used some Anita's 3d gloss on her shoes. The papers are Basic Grey Kioshi.
The white flowers are Prima E line ones and the roses are from hobbycraft.
The ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop and was coloured with promarkers to match can't remember where I got the pin from they have been sat in my drawer waiting for me to use.The sentiment is stamped onto the middle section of my nellie snellen die
Choccy has asked how I colour the ribbon so here goes I lay the ribbon onto a scrap piece of card and the just gently run the wide nib of the promarker over the ribbon and then leave for a couple of minutes just to let the ink dry this way the card soaks up most of the excess ink rather than you fingers hth.

A beautiful card Jenny.
I love how you have built the flower up by using a e-line and then a rose ontop. It looks really effective.
Can i ask how do you manage to colour your ribbon so well ? . I tried with raffia ribbon which is a nightmare as its all holes and bumps and then i tried with organza ribbon. Well i looked like an explosion in a 'pink' factory by the time i had finished lol
