"Ribbons" Challenge

Happy New Year people!  It feels good to have a fresh start to a new year!
I did this card for my challenge over at Sundays With Crissy.  The challenge runs all month long and I'll be offering up five free digi's to one lucky challenge participant!
The challenge this month is "Ribbons".  I thought it would be cool to make a circular frame and wrap a ribbon around it.  I think I've seen it done somewhere in blogland before some time ago, but who knows where.  Just sayin', it isn't my idea.   I used my digital image, "Teddy's First Christmas" and coloured it with water colour inks.   This is actually the original that Whimsy is selling as a pre-coloured digi.  
I used some paper from mine and Ann's original designer paper, also sold at Whimsy.  It is from the Holiday Folly pack. 

Here's hoping for a bright and happy 2011 for you and yours!
