Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #25 Ribbons & Lace

I did have this scheduled for 15:00, but low and behold.. blogger didn't post it. Can anything else go wrong today?!

Hey all, how has your week been so far?! Gosh, it has been all systems go here lately, I don't know whether I'm coming or going. I really need to sort myself out and start scheduling my time properly again. Here comes the diary. Ever since I finished uni I'm all of a tizz with myself, half the time I don't know what day it is!

Anywho, today over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges we want to see some pretty 'RIBBONS AND LACE'

Now it doesn't get much easier than that, does it?! I have gone for an.. elegant?! card this time round, with a clean uncoloured image - Lil' Victorian Steampunk Evie. This is the reason I LOVE digis - you can make them aaany size you want and focus on one area of the image.

I have used Basic Black from SU! for my cardbase and embossed a piece of River Rock cardstock from SU! with the 'Snow Cap' embossing folder from Sizzix for BG. I know I've said before, this is a Christmas folder, but I LOVE the texture it gives, and it's sooo not Christmassy!!

I have used both oval and labels fourteen nesties to create my focal point with the image. A metal tag from TH tied with black bakers twine and some gorgeous lace, seam binding and hat pins from The Ribbon Girl finish up this card!!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
× YNSC - B + W + 1 More
× A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
× Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
× House of Gilli - Ribbons & Bows

Be sure to stop by the TPS Challenge blog and see what the other uber talented ladies have come up with!! xo Lou.
