Two Challenges

Hello everyone! I was so proud of myself for combining two challenges this time.  I did have a hard time photographing this card though.  It looks much better in real life.  The first challenge is the Lili of the Valley challenge where we have a great sketch from Dawny.  Our Sponsor is The Ribbon Girl!



The second is for the Colour Create Challenge.   This week Mina has picked the gorgeous colors:
CHOCOLATE, STRAWBERRY, AND CREAM - Option is Ribbons


My cutey image is called Pom Pom by Lili of the Valley.  She has been colored with distressed inks and the papers are Bo Bunny.  The ribbon is seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I colored one of my white cherry blossoms with Walnut Stain distressed inks and added a few red poppies and some self adhesive pearls all from Wild Orchid Crafts

For the trim, I again cut the border with my MS Doily punch and then ran is through the crimper. This has become my favorite new thing haha!  Don't worry I will tire of it soon.

We would love to see you join these two challenge. Be sure and see what all the DT have done!
Be back tomorrow with a Just Magnolia Hanglar Stanglar card!

Hugs, Dena
