Crafts & Me - Ribbons & Bows

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am finally back with a card after an unplanned absence,
My internet and landline went off last Friday morning and I finally got back online Monday night.
Tuesday my Mum locked herself out of work so a locksmith had to come to the rescue and then me and hubby had a new wardrobe for our laddo which we had to assemble.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which you will also find over at the Crafts & Me Inspiration & Challenge blog.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
