Here is my first shot at an Everyday Celebrations card for my workshop on Tuesday. I think the ribbon is a little too much...don't you? Also, the coloring on the sunday didn't show up so well in the scan. But it does look good in person. The cherry is regal rose, the straws and the circle on the sundae cup are celery, and the sundae cup is bashful blue. I watercolored with crayons on watercolor paper, and I must have used a little too much water because they turned out so light.

I love your colors. If think the ribbon is too much,,,maybe try using one color to tie all the way around, and then tie lil strips of the other colors to that one,,,maybe you have seen that on other cards posted here,,,I know I have and think it is real cute.
