Live, Laugh. Love - The Ribbon Reel #38


Hello and welcome

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I'm here to share I have made for this fortnights Challenge over at The Ribbon Reel using Debbie's photo inspiration.  Debbie is challenging us to use Damask and also Ribbon and Lace, so here is the photo that inspired me to make the following card:

and here's my take...


I stamped the damask background using PTI's 'Damask Designs' stamp set and used Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Die to cut some kraft cardstock which I painted using cream acrylic  and Spellbinders Floral doily die to cut a little script paper from some pretty Prima patterned paper.  I used some beautiful 'gold silky crush ribbon', '25mm Bridal White Satin', May Arts Ivory Lace and Pearl trim across the centre of the card and a gorgeous Spellbinders kraft die cut butterfly, edge in cream acrylic paint and topped off with some sweet netting and 'Hybrid pink/white Tea Rose' from The Ribbon Reel.

The sentiment is taken from PTI's Round and Round Anniversary set and simply stamped in dark brown Memento 'Rich Cocoa' ink


Do stop by and leave a lovely comment for the rest of the fantastic TRR DT - they really have created some absolute beauties to behold!!

Have a wonderful week!!
