Thank You ribbon panel - May Arts DT submission part 2

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying this good weather - we're having a family day. Tonight we're going for a meal to celebrate Stanley's great-grandma's 80th birthday, and this morning we went out and had a go on a miniature steam train with Stanley - he loved every minute of it! Now while he naps I'm back with another card for my May Arts Design Team submission. For this one I decided to create a ribbon panel, using various different textures, colours and widths of ribbon. I absolutely ADORE the glitter ribbon I've used here, and the photo doesn't show just how beauiful and sparkly it really is!

I wanted the ribbon to be the star of the show and could have left the panel how it was, but I thought it looked a little too plain and simple, so I added more dimension and texture by using a template to hand-cut these stars from a sheet of cork, then finished off with a sprinkling of sequins. Sequins are my new craft obsession - they make an eye-catching change from the usual pearls or gems, and they're cost-effective too! I think it's going to be a while before I'm over this particular obsession. That's all from me for now - back soon with part 3 :)
