Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #155 is "Ribbons". You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme. Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of 5 digi images from QKR Stampede, January 29, 2013 at US timezone.

I thought of creating another New Year's Card for Kaboodle Doodles with a slightly Vintage appeal with gold ribbons.  Thus, I started with vintage colors of cardstock and slightly richly colored embellishments.  And I was too happy to color the digital image of QKR Stampede our sponsor.
