New Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi! I am really excited about today's challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon, because I chose it! When I was a little girl, I had a collection of antique Ribbon Doll pictures in my room, and I thought how fun it would be to use some of these as the inspiration for today's challenge. Here you can see some examples.

My card is more modern, but with a vintage flair.

I used an image from Karen's Doodles, Beautiful Queen, and printed her twice, and colored her. Then I added my Old Gold Satin ribbon to the bottom layer and "ruched" it using Scor-tape. I added some Lemon Kaiser Craft pearls on my ruffles, to give it more interest. Then I attached my top image (with the center portion cut out) over the other layer using dimensional tape. This was such a fun card to make! I really hope you will be inspired by this challenge. You don't have to make a ribbon doll, just take some inspiration from the pictures.
