Just Magnolia 20: Ribbon and Bows

This week the challenge at Just Magnolia is ribbon and bows.  I thought that this was a really cute theme and I figured that it would be simple too.  WRONG.  I fussed with this card for longer than I care to admit. I switched ribbon 4 times and paper 3 times.  Every time I chose a new paper, the ribbon didn't match anymore! ARRGGHHH!!  I'm not crazy about how the card turned out.  I don't hate it, but I don't love it either.
One thing I do love about this card....Tilda!!!  How could you not love her!?!  She's so sweet in her little overalls and pigtails.  Tilda and the strawberry are both from the Magnolia Summer Kit.  My friend Susan stamped them and sent them to me.  Isn't she sweet?  Thanks Susan!!

Thanks for looking!!

Another compliment! I feel my head getting bigger! LOL! Seriously though, I like your card! Great coloring work, complete with shading, cute color combinations- I LOVE pink and that light green together-and glitter! What's NOT to like? The touches of glitter on the strawberry are a good idea!
Hmmmm! Where did you get that strawberry patterned paper!!!!! I have to hunt that down! I LOVE strawberries on things like paper, curtains, etc! I even had strawberries on my kitchen wallpaper a while back! But I only EAT the real ones! Hehehe!

Hi Susan! The paper is from a DCWV Stack--Nana's Nursery Baby Girl. I love these papers. They are so sweet. :) It's a good price here:
