Totally NOT My Usual Style But I Do Really Like This :)

Picture 012 copy

Hi there lovely peeps and a very Happy Sunday to all xxx

Today sees a brand new colour challenge over at  The Ribbon Girl Blog and it is ;;;;;

… an absolute cracker - one of my faves in fact.

We used the following pic as a source of inspiration ….

… and isn't it pretty :)

We have 2 fab prizes for you as well. Firstly there is a

from Lili of The Valley,

plus …..

… this beautimous lavender ribbon kit from the Ribbon Girl.

.. this is what I did and I think you’ll agree that this is not a bit like my usual style.

But I am always really  envious of the gorgeous cards that people like the lovely Kim Piggott and Debbie Dolphin make, so inspired by them and with a bit of shameless casing of the amazing layout that my LOTV teamie June used on one of her fab cards, plus a bit of kraft card that I got from the NEC and which has been sat on my desk for aaaaages,  I had a bash.  Not quite up to Kim & Debbie’s standards I know, but  I have to say that I really do like this. So perhaps this is a taste of things to come ;)

I used Tilda Catching Stars and coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R20

Hair – E41, E43, E50, E81

The rest – E04, RV0000, RV00, RV35, RV95

The papers are all from Grin n Bear It collection from Nitwits

Ivory Pleated 5/8" Satin Ribbon12mm Cream Picot Cotton Lace and 32mm Cream Fine Vintage Style Straight Edge Flower Lace – gorgeous, and all from The Ribbon Girl :)

And talking of gorgeous, I am still loving these sentiment tags -  Set 24 from Lili of The Valley

More from the same tag set plus a bow made from 25mm Mauve (Old Rose) No 977 Berisford Satin and topped with a button  from the Pearl Button Mixture pack

Here I used a 30mm Pink Two Tone Mulberry Paper Open Rose,  two Pink Two Tone 15mm Pretty Blossoms and a couple of 25mm Green Rose Leaves – all from The Ribbon Girl of course :). And there’s a couple of leaves punched from kraft card using a Martha Stewart Frond Leaf punch from Simon Says Stamp.

Three Sugar and Spice self adhesive pearls from The Ribbon Girl to finish off ……….

and we’re done!!

And on that note I’m off to finish the hoovering etc  (booooooooring) and then his Lordship has a tennis match this afternoon which means that I get 5 hours to sit and craft – ohh what bliss!!! I don’t even have to do his dinner because he will get that at the tennis club after he has finished the match -  woohoooo!!!! I should really be mopping the floors but  it’s too good an opportunity to pass on -  I can always do the floors later!!!

So I hope that you have a nice afternoon doing whatever you are doing and I’ll catch up with you again soon as soon. Take care and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
