Ribbon Weaving

I have spent most of the day making this card! I remembered why I had bought all the ribbons I found the other night - for ribbon weaving - and got to wondering how it would look on a card! This is the result:
I started making a 6x6 card but couldn't pull it all together so pulled it apart and made an 8x8 instead. Then I didn't like the image I'd used so did another one and just as I got it finished I realised I had been mixing two challenges up and was using the wrong brand of stamp altogether!!!!..............must be an age thing lol Anyway I finally got the right stamp coloured in and the card completed in time for bed!
The LOTV challenge is peach and green..........one of my favourite colour combinations :) The stamp is coloured with promarkers (I'd had plenty of practise by this time lol). The doiley is from Cheery Lynn Designs (if anyone has a sandwich for the wizard or grand calibur for these dies I'd be grateful - I only managed to diecut the outside scallops today), flowers are from Prima. Card is finished with some pearls and the little swirls were from the die which originally came with my Wizard and has hardly been used.
May try the ribbon weaving again with a Tilda stamp as I just received another one of the Butterfly Dreams collection today and a very kind Sheenie is sending me two she no longer uses..........so I've gone from one to six in 10 days.......oops how did that happen!!

As always, thanks for looking and commenting.
