Fancy Ribbons



Good morning to you all, well our internet is all up and running again but afraid my visits are still spasmodic, I was under the weather earlier in the week and it seems to have turned into a bit of an MS relapse. So not too much sleep due to the pain, all fingers and thumbs and everything on go slow, so my apologies if comments are a bit short and sweet..........but rest assured I am still able to visually take in your lovely creations.

It's time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Wendy has chosen the theme of 'Fancy Ribbons' which fits in very nicely with this weeks sponsor Crafty Ribbons.

This is a card I made recently for Tattered Lace using the new Victoria Nelson designs, I'm not actually on the CD/paper crafting DT but I think I must have enthused so much over the pretty summery colours and images that I was sent the kit to play with.

The papers were printed from the CD and the focal image is one of the toppers as is the sentiment.  I made the easel card using TL Pin Dot Pearl frames, I think they make such a pretty base cards, matted and layered everything and added some flowers and ruched some ribbon for the easel stopper.

Happy weekend all.

Gorgeous card Brenda, the ribbon is stunning and looks so rich across the base of the easel. I would love to get my hands on the pin dot square dies as it is one of my current favourites. Unfortunately it has been out of stock for a while.
So sorry to hear that you are under the weather. I do hope things improve quickly.
Take care and enjoy your weekend

Deliziosa easel card, Brenda! Il frame è molto carino e leggero, si intona perfettamente con questa bella carta e con il topper. Mi piace tanto il nastro lucido arricciato di questo bel color pesca!
Buon weekend!

Donna Ellis said...

Brenda, no! No more relapses! Wouldn't it be grand if we could just "yell" a disease out of our bodies? It's a little difficult at times to be trapped inside our bodies. I try telling mine that it's not polite to take hostages, but sometimes, it just doesn't care.

Your beautifully ribboned card is created with the must lusciously gorgeous colors! Yummy! Lovely composition!


Here's to better days VERY soon! Love, de

Pamellia Johnson said...

Brenda this is so beautiful the colours are what caught my attention first, they are so soft and delicate, the topper of flowers is gorgeous so is the ribbon laid down as the stopper for the easel card fold, excellent creation.

Helen said...

Hope you feel better soon! the card is gorgeous.. come on England! good start, need a goal or some!

MaryH said...

One of the prettiest easel cards I've seen in a while. That is a gorgeous image, and is enhanced by the ruffles of the ribbon & the eyelet edging round the main motif. I've never invested in any of these CD's... I know a lot of the UK bloggers use a lot of CD images...so pretty. Hope you will be able to get some rest, and feel better real soon. TFS & Hugs

Kathleen said...

Totally beautiful in all aspect, love everything about it.

Completely stunning card Brenda, wow, love both the stamped and the embellishment flowers and they fit so well together!

Thinking of you and hoping you will start to feel better soon. My lack of visits is simply due to too much work with the end of the school term drawing ever nearer. I do apologize... xxx hugs
