Hobby house challenge

The Sun is shining and its feels like spring will be on the way before we know it. Well as its so lovely I decided to treat myself to an afternoon in my craft room. Unsure what to make I got my tin of hobby house toppers and thought Im going to make a card & enter the challenge where the theme is ribbon. And this is the result ! Im quite happy that I eventually managed to tie a decent bow. Courtesy of john and the video on his blog.
