GingerSnappers Challenge #16 - Ribbons

Cor blimey!

Two posts in one day!

Another fabulous challenge from the GingerSnappers, which was to use ribbons on your artwork. Well, I used one ribbon...which I hope will be allowed :O)) and I also used some gorgeously scrummy lace to go with the ribbon. I hasten to add I am only just in time to get this one in as it closes on 15th Aug.....phew!




The card is a massive one, so plenty of room for me to get overembellishing...I used a Whiff of Joy image, coloured with Copics and then cut out with a Nestie. The papers are by KaiserCraft...oh boy, are they heavenly or what? I just love black and white together but wanted to add a little colour, so after seeing my Prima Hydrangeas looking all sad and neglected in the flower drawer (yes, I have a drawer for my flowers...a big one at that ... actually, it is two drawers...only so they don't get crushed tho....LOL) I hit on the monochrome with a "hint" idea.




There is a lot going on on this card and I hope that it isn't too embellished but you know me...I have to always go OTT! Opinions will be greatly appreciated!

Anyways, I hope that it is ok for the GingerSnappers challenge....and thanks for looking....am off to fiddle with some more bits of paper and card now :O))
