DT card for Crafty Ribbons, Christmas theme but must use ribbon or lace

Hiya peeps,
I'm your host for this weeks challenge
The theme this week is Christmas but most of all don't forget
to use ribbon or lace otherwise we will have to delete your entry.
I have used a beautiful
for my card, shown below. I hope
it inspires you to join in with this weeks challenge to
see if you could win the selection of fabulous satin
ribbons from owner Ali.
The image I used is from Wild Rose Studio and is a
clear rubber stamp that I love using. I know its a
birthday card stamp but it doesnt say aything like that
on the image so thats why I used it for Christmas. The 
backing paper is from First Edition and is one sheet from
the Guilded Winter 12x12 inch premium paper pad. There are
48 sheets of 200gsm heavyweight cardstock.
I would recommend this paper/card pad to anyone!!

DT card for Crafty Ribbons, the theme is Blue or mainly blue with ribbon or lace

Creative Fingers #30 - AG
Hiya peeps

The theme of todays card is the colour blue, all or mainly.
So I took an image from Lacy Sunshine that I had already
coloured & matted on to a piece of blue glitter card.
I then matted that on to a piece of blue mirri card, rounding
off the corners to match the image.
The background paper is one I had in my computer "stash" that I printed out ages ago., the blue card behind is a recent purchase from Tonic Studios & is a 12x12 inch Shades of Blue packaging. I bought the whole range of colours available from a tv shopping show when they were advertised on offer.
The flower layers & pins are also from my stash.
I finished the card off by embellishing with a blue coloured star shaped button from Basics 2 Go Buttons - Stars in the top corner & Basics 2 Go Buttons - Flower Pastel collections, on top off the flower layers. The ribbon is from Sentiment Birthday Ribbon - Island Blue from the Sentiments collection.
I also placed a piece of the "Thinking of you" paper on the inside as a backdrop for the insert or sentiment.

I hope you like my finished make.

different areas I saw the hanging & thought that I can
do that!!
All the backings are made from card,ribbon & most of
 the buttons are from Crafty Ribbons

more in a couple of days. I hope you like what I have made.
