May Your Day Be Filled With Beauty And Love... And Ribbon... And Cards

I have discovered a new (to me) challenge blog - The Ribbon Girl. How could I resist a challenge for the gorgeous colours of pink, lilac and white? I even managed to included some ribbon too.

I love the quote on this card  - May Your Day Be Filled With Beauty and Love and that is what I wish all of you. I look forward to your visits and appreciate your generous support. Thank you for the time you take to visit and comment.

Check out the challenge post at The Ribbon Girl to see all the beautiful DT samples. Lilac, pink and white is such a lovely colour palette. Closes December 14th.

Vintage Angel Christmas Card With Butterfly

Here is one of the first Christmas cards I've made this Christmas season.

The edges of the base card are brushed with Tea Dye Distress Ink and also the main image and edges and here and there. I do love distress inks. The image is layered onto gold card. I like the image - quite peaceful and reflective.

The image is from the very generous and talented Elisa at Digital Designs by Elisa. Explore the site and her shop. This image was free but prices at her shop are very reasonable.

The Seasons Greetings sentiment is done with a Cuttlebug folder onto bronze card. The butterfly is 3 stamped layers with Twinkling H20's on the wings.

Time You Enjoy Wasting Is Not Wasted - Card

The sentiment says

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted (John Lennon)... a great sentiment for papercrafters.

This is a free digital stamp from Beccy's Place which I've coloured with Twinkling H2O's and layered using the Martha Stewart doily punch on the edges. I've added a cute yellow flower to the flowerpot.

Vintage Bird On Glimmer Card - A Little Bird Told Me

Here's a card I was quite happy with. It's on glimmery pink card. The sentiment is a computer generated font. I'm starting to see different ways to use the doilies, so am experimenting with that at the moment. And which punch would you use with a doily? Martha Stewart's doily lace punch of course - mainly because I don't own any others yet. ;)

I quite like using this larger square format... sort of a bigger "canvas" to work on.
