The Ribbon Reel #19!

 Hello sweeties and welcome!  I'm excited to share my project for The Ribbon Reel #19 - 'Polka Dots and Pink' today with you all!

 Two of my very favorite things to craft with - yum!

I started my card design off by adding a length of 50mm Guipure White Lace from The Ribbon Reel Shop.   I almost hated to continue on with the sketch design from Mojo that I was following because I hated to cover any little bit of this amazingly beautiful lace -- it's stunning!  Next I added a white doilie from Martha Stewart followed by a length of 38mm Pink & White Striped Grosgrain.  I adhered a snipett of 12mm Guipure White Lace Drops trim to the top of the grosgrain ribbon for some pop!

Next added is a sweet, glittered chipboard tag to which I added some hot pink glittered alphas and a bit of 10mm Small Check Baby Gingham in Pink & White.   To complete this oh-so-sweet-in-pink card, I cut out a dress form from some more Prima patterned paper, embossed it with a polka dot embossing folder and then added a hot pink velvet bloom tied on with some Cotton Candy Pink Baker's Twine ... LOVE!!

This is the perfect little Valentine Card to give to someone sweet - don't you think??!!??
Please be sure to pop on over to The Ribbon Reel Blog to visit the other teamie's blogs and check out their awesome inspiration ... and then I hope you'll give this week's Polka Dots and Pink Challenge a try!
