Just Inspirational Challenge #15

It's time for Challenge #15 at Just Inspirational Challenges and this week we want you to use the following thing on your card:  ribbon, gems/pearls, and red and gold.
Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Design's.  LOVE her digis!!!
For my card I've used some gorgeous My Mind Eye papers and a Meljen's digi image.  The red ribbon is some fiber that I bought a long time ago.  It wasn't easy to work with because it's three separate strands and they didn't want to stay wound together.  I've popped a second printing of the stars up on pop dots and added some gold half pearls and some little gem stars.  They were originally white but I used some gold alchol ink mixative to color them.  Lots of layers and little distress ink finish it off.
Pop on over to JIC, see what the other DT members have created and link up your creation for this challenge!
