NOT JUST CARDS July Challenge - My first DT post

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy! A HUGE welcome to a special blog post! 
First of all this will be my very first blog post for the AMAZING Not Just Cards Design Team and secondly it is my 250th blog post. 
So without further ado I would like to share with you a card that I have created using the gorgeous Magical Day digi image from one of our sponsors for this month All Dressed Up!
Here it is and I hope that you like it. 

Here's how I did it!
I  took a 5x7 card blank covered it with pink gingham card that I lightly inked around the edges and popped some satin ribbon across the centre. Next I created the topper by cutting a square of pretty handmade (not by me lol)  paper, distressed it around the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and lightly inked it. The Image is the gorgeous Magical Day digi  digi by All Dressed Up that I colored with a selection of my Copics. 
To finish I have embellished with skeleton leaves, ribbon, a sentiment and some flatback pearls.
