Bearly Mine Challenge - 3 July 2012 - Ribbons and Bows

Well we had a lovely selection of cards/projects for the Bearly Mine Challenge last week.  make sure you go and have a look for the winner.
Today sees the start of another challenge and the topic is "ribbon and bows".  
We are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and they are offering a $20 gift certificate for the winner.
For my card I have used a pre-coloured image called Fairy Emma.  I just love her mannerism.  I decided to make a summertime feel card - even though it doesn't really feel like summer here in the UK!!!  I have die-cut the image and used a chalk ink pad around the edge.  The backing papers are all from Bearly Mine Designs and are Gingham, Summer's Lace Dreams, Roses Dreams and spotted flowers.  
I have matted and layered the papers but not without using my Tim Holtz distressing tool on them and used some green pan Pastel and then finally edged with a chalk ink pad.  

I have finished the card off with a ribbon bow, Craftwork Cards sentiments (which I coloured green with a Promarker to match the backing papers), glitter flowery corner stickers. two sparkly gem green brads, Marianne Designs Creatables die-cut butterflies with chalk ink to highlight the embossing. Bearly Mine Designs spotted flowers all cut out with inked edges and card candi centres, two different ribbons, buckle and some tear drop stick pins with beads attached to the stems.

Make sure you pop on over to the Bearly Mine Challenge Blog to have a look at the wonderful creations from the Design Team.
