Ribbon and Lace

Happy Thursday everyone,

Another challenge card for me, its ages since I entered the Lili of the Valley Challenge, I know I've not done so since it changed to Lili's Little Fairies, but this weeks challenge is 'Ribbon and Lace' and I've recently bought some stamps from the new release so it'd be rude not to ;)

Regular visitors to my blog will know that I lost my Mam and Dad, within 10 days of each other, in January. My husband, kids and friends have been great, but when they're all out at work and school my card making and especially my colouring has helped me to get through the days. Please click on the link on the top right to have a look at my candy as a way of saying 'Thank-you' to all of the kinds words that have helped me through.

On with my card,

I've used Wish Upon A Star, from the latest release at Lili Of The Valley. I've coloured her in with distress inks.

The paper is from Magnolia, the border die is a Doohickey. The seam binding, flowers and brad are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I think the lace is from The Ribbon Girl.

I've used glamour dust for a bit of sparkle, and the flowers have had stickles added.
