Just Magnolia challenge - ribbons and bows

Yay, I'm back in the swing of things now! Two cards in two days! This is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge which is to use ribbons and bows. It is a card but I have decided I like it too much to give away so am going to use it as a picture in my little girl's new bedroom that we're currently decorating pink!

I have used two of the images from the summer kit that a friend kindly stamped up for me. So that Tilda is sat on something I have drawn a pencil line and then used distress ink to make it look like a ledge. All the edges of the papers and image have been distressed with Tattered rose ink also.

As they were both on separate pieces of board I have cut out the strawberry and flowers and use them as an embellishment. My new MS doiley lace punch has been in action again on the bottom of the paper this look so much!

The sentiment stamp is from Sugar Nellie. I have stamped it in tattered rose distress ink and also distressed the edges with the same ink before roughing them up with some scissors and finally spraying with pearl glimmer mist (another new toy!). The circle is holding a heart shaped "made with love" charm threaded onto some jute style cord I cut off a jeans label.

I originally thought I would use a huge bow but it overpowered the rest of the detail so opted instead for two cute little chiffon ribbon bows and ribbon threaded through the holes in the lace. I have left all the edges raw for a shabby look. Thanks for looking and enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend! x
