A Recipe with a Prize

The Daring Cardmakers are being sponsored by digi company Robyn's Fetish this week and we have a great prize from them to give away at the end of next week - as always our prize winners are chosen at random from all who join in and qualify (there are 3 rules to follow).  Head over to the BLOG to find out more. 
Robyn sent the team four digi images and one of her downloadable paper collections to play with, and we came up with a card "recipe" for this week's challenge - here's what you need to use when "cooking up" your card
You need to use
1 image (stamped, digi or other)
2 pieces of ribbon
3 papers
Here's my card:
I resized and printed the image and coloured in parts of it.  Next I converted parts of the design for cutting with my Craft Robo.  By measuring carefully the height and width of the printed image I could resize the template and cut the pieces to fit exactly.  The umbrella and fro were made this way.  The frog is cut in several layers and all the tiny pieces were inked around the edges before building up the little chap.
I've used:
  Coney Island Summer paper collection and the "Don't Rain on my Parade" digital image.from Robyn's Fetish.
Orange and green ribbons, buttons and flowers from my stash,
MS border punch,
Promarkers for coloured-in areas
I hope you'll get a chance to join in and if you do - then good luck for the prize draw next week!
I'm gradually catching up with my list now - but it's meant less time blogging and blog-hopping, unfortunately - but it's good to get to the bottom of the list at last.  Mind you, new and exciting things have just been added.....(note to self: must not start on the new things before finishing the existing ones!). 
Have you visited Funky Hand recently? Anice has been even busier than usual and there's a new product launch to be announced this weekend.....and as if that's not enough, there's even more fab stuff to come in the next few weeks....ooooh what a tease I am!
Right, I'm going to make a cup of coffee and then finish off the customer's card that's sitting on my desk - and then make the New Baby card that's likely to be needed by Monday.  it's all go here, don't you know :)
Thanks for visiting
