I made this card for two challenges this week - the Ribbon Reel and Color Q. I just placed my first order with the Ribbon Reel about two weeks ago. I was anxious to play in their blog challenge because I already know many of their fab DT members so I got started without my goodies. I thought the shipping charges to the US would be very expensive but they were very reasonable. I love all the pretty flowers and trimming and other embellishments they offer. I just finished the card and my shipment arrived today - just in time for me to add a few goodies to my creation - like that pretty leaf stick pin! If you'd like to play along at The Ribbon Reel - you can get the details here: http://theribbonreelchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/03/challenge-24-pretty-as-posey.html
The pretty colors for the Colour Q Challenge are so pretty I am entering my card here as well. What a gorgeous color combo - so many spring possibilities. If you'd like to play along with the Color Q ladies you can get all the http://colourq.blogspot.com/2012/03/colourq-challenge-130.htmlI made my card with lots of rolled flowers, a Cheery Lynn doily background and a sweet stamp from Papertrey Ink. The greenery behind the rolled roses is a snowflake die - the rolled roses are actually a Christmas ornament die - very clever huh? I love it when you can dual purpose an item!! The Simply Jane set is so romantic I thought it would be perfect with the flowers and the lacy background.
Thank you for having a look. I hope have a great day and find some time to play yourself.
