Lace and Ribbon

Good morning and here we are at the end of April tomorrow being the first of May and hopefully we will start to have some nicer weather!

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme is Lace and Ribbon so get out your stashed ribbon and lace and get cracking!  Here is my card:




I have used Roses by Lexi and you can get it here at Fairy Dust Crafts.  The image was coloured with Copics and I added some Stickles for a bit of sparkle.  I have cut and matted using Spellbinders and added some pre-gathered lace behind the mat.  The papers are Nitwits and the ribbon is from Paperchase which is left over from Christmas when I made my own tags.  Pearls are from my stash.  If you would like to join in the challenge we would love to see you so head over to Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the team have come up with for some more inspiration!  We are sponsored this week by:




Cropstop who will kindly give the lucky winner a $15 gift certificate!


Thanks for visiting me today and I would love it if you could leave a comment!  I'll be back tomorrow, take care xx

Hello Susan. This is so beautiful and very delicate. Love the pastel lemon. The addition of the lace around the topper is perfect, and stunning papers too.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
