Ribbon Girl challenge …



Good evening all, it’s the weekend …hurray!

Hopefully I’ll get some time to do some crafting over the next few days – the Lili of the Valley DT are going to be working with some new designs soon, they are sooo cute so watch this space for news of when to look out for sneak peeks!


I don’t usually enter challenges but The Ribbon Girl have a guest DT spot up for grabs this month so I couldn’t resist making a card for their colour challenge and having a go. How lovely would it be to be a ‘ribbon girl’ …it’s one of my favourite websites and I LOVE using their gorgeous products



This is the inspiration picture …




and this is the card I made…

The inspiration photo is a circle so I thought a circle card was best, also I just got some new Spellbinders grand decorative circle dies and wanted to try them so that worked out really well

I know I said I hadn’t used a Lili of the Valley stamp  …but I did sneak in the sentiment, it’s from the very useful Set 10 Verses sheet

I’ve used lace and twine from The Ribbon Girl and also those fab rolled paper flowers which are really handy

The backing papers are K & Co, card is Core’dinations and the leaf is a Marianne die

The little doily behind the sentiment in from Hunky Dory, it’s the first thing of theirs I’ve bought, they are parchment and look really pretty but to be honest the pattern just disappears when you put them on your card. I inked it over with a distress ink and it was as different again, that’s the way to use them


Hope you like it, as always all your comments are very much appreciated.


Have a lovely weekend
