Bearly Mine Challenge - 19 February 2013 - Ribbon, lace and twine

Another week has whizzed around and it is time for another challenge over at the Bearly Mine Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is "ribbon, lace and twine" (you can use just one of these, 2 of these or even all three) - well for a lot of us that's not a challenge at all.

This week we have two fabulous sponsors.  The first is:
who are giving the winner a $20 gift certificate to spend in the Fred She Said Designs Store.

The second sponsor is:
Crafty Ribbons and the lucky winner will win these gorgeous ribbons.
For my card I have use a beautiful rose pricing pattern from Fred She Said called "Diamond Rose and PP Pattern Digi Set" which I have printed out onto 280gsm card and then pricked all the pattern and then did faux stitching with a fine tipped Promarker.  The image I have coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The backing paper I used is from Bearly Mine Designs Rose's Dreams.  I have done some simple matting and layering and used my Tim Holtz distressing tool on some of the layers.  The card has been finished off with some Broderie Anglaise lace, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, some Wild Orchid mini roses and I have wound the stalk around my pricing tool for some added dimension and a ribbon and twine bow (I've not tried tying together a fine ribbon and twine before but I like the effect and will use a again.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers - One for the girls
Delightful Sketches - Frilly
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - Make it girly
Whoopsi Daisy - Make it girly
