Twinkling Away :)

Good morning  peeps and a very happy Sunday to everybody.

Yes you’re right,  I haven't been on here for a good while now but I haven’t been slacking, I promise you!!
Oh no, far from it. I’ve been busy with all sorts of exciting stuff.

I’ve also got a fair few cards which I haven't blogged so I’ll try and get that done very shortly.

But on with today and it’s time for another fabulous challenge over at The Ribbon Girl blog and our theme is

Add Ribbons

and that’s it – couldn’t be easier.

We have 2 sponsors for you …

Lili of The Valley

and

The Ribbon Girl

If you get a sec, nip over and check out the blog – there’s some pretty darn tootin’ fab cardage to be seen : )

And …

... this is what I did.

I used and image from  LOTV Art Pad Set 33 Christmas Cuties – so handy to have – and I just cut it out and added a bit of Glossy accents to the buttons and carrot nose. Then I mounted it onto a die cut oval which I'd covered with some Up Up & Away paper, swiped with a glue pad then doused it in Glamour Dust.

You can see it a bit better here.

 

Now for the ribbons.

I made a bow from  25mm Black No 10 Small Check Gingham Ribbon then topped it with another made from 25mm Red Plain Sheer Ribbon. Then I put some glue onto an Aqua Small Plain Button and dunked that in the glitter, and on that went!!

I also used some Red/White Spot Lace Edge Bias Binding which you can see better on the top pic – seriously love this.
And I added three
Aqua Dewdrops cos they are so pretty and they match the papers perfectly.

And that's the old card done.

Right I’m off to get on with the next thing on the list. Enjoy your Sunday and I wont leave it quite so long next time.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Gail, this looks like a Spellbinders die Curved Borders Two. I was in love with this border as well.
