The Ribbon Reel #3!

WOW ... moving right along over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog and we're up to #3!!  My bloggity buddy, Clare, is our awesome host this week and she has chosen a SKETCH for us to design with ...

I began with some pretty papers from Webster's Pages and embossed them with my favorite folder - Vintage Wallpaper from Stampin' Up!  I added a bit of ink to create a time-worn effect.

The stamped image is from Webster's Pages too -- so soft, worn and pretty!!  I stamped the main image in Blushing Bride and the side accents in Antique Linen Distress Ink from Tim Holtz - sentiment is from PTI.  The SCRUMPTIOUS ribbons and trims from The Ribbon Reel Boutique are White Guipure Lace Drops {swoon}, Lemon Yellow Baker's Twine, May Arts Ivory Silky Crush and Champagne Striped Twill Tape!!!!  Seriously, Keilly has THE BEST selection of ribbons, trims and accessories around!  A visit to The Ribbon Reel Boutique is a 'must' :)  This Design Team position is a 'dream job' for me as I'm addicted to adding laces and ribbons on my cards!!!!!!

Doesn't the Ivory Silky Crush Ribbon make the most gorgeous bloom?  Just run a gathering stitch along one side, pull up the threads to gather and then tie off the ends and attach with a strong glue to your project!  The Champagne Striped Twill Tape was rouched and the Guipure Drop Lace was machine sewn onto the card!

I used a bit of Lemon Baker's Twine to create a flourish effect among the leaves.  This card is just pure eye candy IRL!
Please visit The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other girlies have created this week for your inspiration and then give our sketch challenge a try.  You have until June 12th to participate!  You'll not want to miss out on the chance to win a handful of delicious trims and laces from TRR!
