Christmas Card Club - Ribbons and Lace

Gosh aren't the weeks flying by - it'll soon be Christmas at this rate! Never mind I'll have all my cards done in time as it's time to share my latest Christmas Card Club make. I got to choose the theme this time and I've asked the girls to use ribbon and lace (real or faux) on their cards. Here's mine:


Decoupage is from Joanna Sheen, I love her vintage Christmas images. Die cuts are from Spellbinders. Swiss dots border folder from Cuttlebug. Ribbon, lace and pearls from my stash.
And a side image to show the dimension.


Challenges entered:
Craft your Passion - lots of texture
Lexi's Creations - lace and ribbon
Anything Goes - things with wings
My Mum's Craft Shop - embossing
Jingle Belles - embossing
Phindy's Place - vintage
Stamp Man - favourite technique (decoupage)
Mishelflo's - celebration
Truly Scrumptious - distress, die cut/punches

  35. Super colour choice Carol, it looks fab and its one I wouldnt automatically think of for xmas but will have a play now!

    I can see why you chose ribbon or lace as you use it with such flair! I always find I put it on a card and then its all that I can see thereafter so often take it off again!

    Thanks for the challenge it certainly made me think!!
