Magnolia Down Under - Ribbon & Lace

Good Morning Everyone!

So sorry for the lack of posts lately - I've been on an extended Easter Break as my Boss closed the business between Easter and the following Long Weekend (WooHoo 11 consecutive days off!!)

Today I have my card for the latest Magnolia Down Under Challenge - this time we'd like to see some lace and ribbon used together on your card or project.

I've decided to try a twisted Easel Card - my first attempt and I've gone for some really bright colours that I normally don't use :)

The papers are from a 6x6 Cosmo Cricket paper pad and I've combined them with some Pale Mauve and Bright Teal Bazzill.  I've had the rest of the supplies I've used in my stash forever and I've gone with some flat flowers that I never really use much anymore - must try to!!! (I have sooooo many). The large gems and bright purple satin ribbon for the finishing touches really give the card a lift - but too much I hope..... it is very bright :)

The sentiment is from Just Rite -  newly aquired purchase as I need some beautiful verses.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

Simon Says Stamp - Any Goes - Happy Second Anniversay!!
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Flower Challenge
Charisma Cardz - April Showers/May Flowers

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to prepare myself for my son's 15th Birthday Party - just him and 12 of his closest friend spending the night!!!! Wish me luck :)
