This is my feeble attempt at a Kittie Card. My first mistake was looking at the website at 11:00 PM and seeing the Kittie Challenge! I admire her work so much. Problem is, I am a copier and not a creator. So, a couple of hours later...Yes, I fussed and fussed and this is all I got. Back to the drawing board. Thanks Kittie for all your inspiration!

I actually quite like the base image of the little girl and the field; I think it's quite well done!
I believe I understand what you mean... the ribbon embellishment is too simple or just not enough to keep up with the complexity of the image. Unfortunately, I can't come up with any suggestions.
Just wanted you to know that your attempt was far from "feeble"!
Comparing our work to Kittie's work is like comparing apples to oranges...can't and shouldn't be done! She is mighty good, but so are you. All creative gifts are just that; gifts to be shared and appreciated for their own merit. Your card is reminiscent of the Renaissance period..all soft and buttery. I personally believe that the scene is strong enough to stand on it's own without any embellishment. Have a Happy...Cotton

I feel the way you do-- I'm not comfortable creating in such realistic detail, but often I can copy. I have to tell you though, when I saw this card I was wondering if it was a Kitty card! So see?-- you did well! Good for you!-- and thank you for the inspiration to try out this style of stamping!
