Anything goes at Crafty Ribbons

Hello ..I'm getting addicted  to doing this shape card i think this must be my third one over the last few weeks or so... I think they make a great mans card as you can focus on the image as there is not much room to add embellishments, which i think is always hard on male cards!! flowers just don't 
Well this is my DT sample for CRAFTY RIBBONS challenge blog and this fortnight it is our
Anything goes challenge which is always so popular.I

The black and white gingham mini checked ribbon is from HERE at crafty ribbons store.
The lovely prize  is 
mmm just thing of all those lovely ribbons you could buy..LOL
so why not pop on over and add your card i'm sure you will be adding a ribbon or two.
Thanks for your visit again today,
Be back tomorrow with another DT creation....
