Sweet Stampin - Ribbons



Good Morning :)

We have a new challenge starting today over at Sweet Stampin, and our theme is 'Use More Than One Ribbon'.  We are sponsored this week by Crafty Ribbons and our monthly sponsor for April is Joanna Sheen.

On my card I used another gorgeous Crafts & Me digi-image (I just love these!) and coloured with PM's.  I hand-stitched K&Co and MME papers and followed the sketch over at CLP challenges.   The border punches are Martha Stewart and the dies are a mix of spellbinder and doo-hickey.   Flowers and bling from stash.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Stamptacular Sunday - Freebie Week
Emerald Faeries - Dazzle It
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Ribbon or Twine
CLP Challenge - Fab sketch
Papertake Weekly - A Stitch in Time
Cute Card Thursday - Metallica
Chocolate Coffee Cards - Bingo - Pearls, punches, flowers
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend! :)

Paula (PEP) said...

Her eyes are beautiful & the dimension & flow with bounce (goodness I sound like a shampoo advert) of her hair is astonishing - a real wonder of pastels this. Your layering is so INTERESTING - just when you think you've looked at it another element hits the eyes......
Have a wonderful weekend.

I still cannot believe that you hand stitch all these pages. Your stitching is just so perfect each time, it really looks like it was done on a machine. The image is just stunning and I love the apricot and green colour scheme. Beautiful die cuts as usual. Stunning card.
