Hello and a very warm welcome to you this Monday morning!
It's time for another fabulous Ribbon Reel Challenge and we have another inspirational (yummy looking) picture to kickstart your creativity this fortnight. The lovely Keilly, owner of The Ribbon Reel (and all round super-crafty lady) is asking us to create a card/project inspired by the COLOURS in the photo plus LACE or RIBBON.
I used Cosmo Crickets Tea for Two papers and Chipboard pieces on my card - both of which Keilly now has available in The Ribbon Reel store.
I was inspired by the panel pieces of the Freshly Made Sketches card layout this week, so I took three different patterned papers from the 6x6 mini pad, cut them to size, zig-zag stitched around them and then added some Pink Faux Silk Ribbon and Prima Alencon lace - both from the Ribbon Reel. I absolutely ADORE that lace - it looks just like a little lace doily tablecloth underneath the tea set.
I had so much fun with these sweet chipboard elements - I don't think I use them nearly enough on cards. The little cup and saucer and cream jug are just adorable and the perfect size for cards - but having said that they would make a beautiful little cluster on any scrapbook page or album too!!
I created a little banner from cream cardstock, sponged the edges with a little Antique Linen Distress ink and then stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's 'Tea for Two' set in rose red ink.

As I mentioned earlier, I used the layout from the
