TRR#41 - Crochet

Happy Monday everyone!  It's time for a fresh challenge at The Ribbon Reel.  Zuzana has chosen this beautiful crochet inspired picture for us to work with this time and asks us to create a card with crochet lace/flower + button + ribbon/twine.

Here's my card...


The colours of that crochet blanket in the photo inspired me to pull out some beautiful (new to me!) Kaisercraft patterned papers and also to use elements from their 6x6 patterned paper pad. Perfect for the homespun, homemade feel of the photo. The heart was cut from aqua Patterned Paper using Serendipity Stamps Heart Outline Die.

I took some gorgeous May Arts Teal Silky Crush ribbon and 'Natural Crochet Lace' available from The Ribbon Reel to create a banner down the centre of the card and finished with some 'brown button twine', a crochet lace bow and a lovely 'Cream Resin Dahlia flower'.


Thanks so much for looking and do stop by the rest of the Ribbon Reel Design Team members as they will surely have some really beautiful cards to share with you today.
