Ribbon and Lace

The challenge at Make My Monday this week is to use ribbon and/or lace and this is what sort of happened when I decided to have a go without any specific plan in my head.  The square embossing folder was one given away with a recent magazine - couldn't resist as usual!! I stamped a simple flower from the Sweet summer set by Stampin' Up, coloured with Copic pens. The little vase is the SU Christmas bauble punch with a slice chopped off, then it was embossed.  In actual fact the mauves on this card really match well for real but again the scanner seems to have changed the tones slightly which is a shame. Some cream lace was added to an X-cut punched border.  I've not added a greeting at this point as it always nice to have a few cards with no particular occasion in mind.


  1. What a lovely card Val. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. Don't you just hate it when photos or the scanner change the colour of something. I love the card and great use of the bauble as the vase.
