Ribbons and braids

Hi, I've finally got around to finishing my entry for this month's challenge at Aurora Wings. I started colouring the beautiful image (available here) weeks ago, then put it aside as I knew I'd have plenty of time as it's a month long challenge... then life got a bit busy (mainly with granddaughters!) anyway, had a bit of time to play today so finished colouring and made my card. Not completely happy with it as it didn't look like this in my head, I think with hindsight that the background dp is too busy but definitely won't have time to make another! It isn't as dark as this IRL but very gloomy today!
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely evening.
