Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge GD/Whiffof Joy DT

Woohoo!! I am thrilled to be able to guest design for Really Reasonable Ribbon's challenge today as the challenge is sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy!! The challenge is to use punches/die cuts. I received some gorgeous ribbons and lace in such gorgeous colours it was difficult to choose what to use! In the end I decided upon the gorgeous lace and lilac striped grosgrain - gorgeous for a Mother's Day card! I used the last of my pink muffin dot paper by Magnolia for my card and painted the edges with picket fence crackle paint.

I coloured the gorgeous Norma Fickel gnome from Whiff of Joy with copics and created a little grass scene beneath his feet.

I created the sentiment on the computer and used my Martha Stewart heart lace punch for my punched element. You can also see how gorgeous the lace is on this close up!

I added a selection of flowers from my stash and some leaf die cuts using Whiff of Joy's leaves die.
I used the gorgeous ribbon to create little ribbon tags on either side of the card, attaching them with my stapler.

Hope you like it and can join in the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge this week! Thanks for looking! x
