Lexi's Creations.....Lace and Ribbon

Hi Susan here....

Over at Lexi's Creations today we have started a new challenge and the theme is
  'Lace and Ribbon'

I am sure everyone will find this an easy challenge to join in with as we all like to use one or the other on our creations.
Please call across to Lexi's Creations and check out the fabulous inspiration from the design team, and further details of the challenge and our amazing sponsor.

Now onto my card....

My backing paper is from a 12x12 pad I bought years ago in USA, it is from Kurio by K&Co.
The beautiful ribbon is from the 'East of India' collection. The ribbon as always from our local market...this one was just the right colour for my card.
The flower is from Prima. The berries are from Hobby Craft.

I have used this image so many times, I love it, it is from Fairy Dust Crafts Store and is called 'Christmas Shopping Phoebe'. I have used chalks to colour and shade the image, inked around the outside edge before putting it onto a punched backing.

What do you think of this, it is made using one of Emma's cake decorating moulds, I used an off white fimo and then used Tim Holtz distressing inks to colour the embossed part and the edges. I love it, I will definitely be making more of these.....she has lots of moulds and now I know how to use them and what they look like.... WOW!!!!

The sentiment was made on our computer and part of our own design collection.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
