Ribbons and Lace - Craftymessers Challenge Blog

Hello all and welcome to my crafty blog.

Todays post is my DT card for the Ribbons and Lace, chosen by my teamie Sandra at the Craftymessers Challange Blog.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sassy Design Studio and we had two of these fabulous digi-designs to work with.

This is my card.

My card is made with a standard A6 white card base, covered with plain pink and pink patterned paper. A Tim Holtz die-cut in dark mauve card was used to help pop the image out from the base card. A deep pink satin ribbon and a lace bow decorate the front of the card.  I coloured the image with my trusty Tombow waterbased markers and then cut the image out.  I adhered the image with dimensional adhesive pads and added the sentiment. The quote is from a web-site dedicated to qoutes from famous actresses and this image called from something sassy and mature. My quote from Mae West fits the bill :))

Don't forget to pop along to the Craftymessers Challenge Blog to check out the other DT submissions. All really FAB!

  1. This is one beautiful card .Love the design ..Perfect colouring , pretty ribbon and lace and really like the way you added the sentiment ..

  2. Gorgeous! I love the saucy image and the use of the inks. Really unusual layout as well, I shall remember this one as it gives me inspiration (I am not good at layouts!) :) x

    1. Hi Debe, and thank you for your lovely comment. This lovely image defied anything sensible and all I could think of were those wonderful women like Peggy Lee, Marilyn Munro and of coure Mae West.
      I'm a bit bad at layouts too, so I have to work at it until I get one that I like.
      Thank you again for your visit.Ax

  3. Love your card, very feminine, your ribbon is fab.
