OSAAT #211 Ribbon or Lace

The theme this week over at One Stitch at a Time is Ribbon or Lace. I chose this pretty image of Pansies by CraftyGirl at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet.

My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. The dusky pink paper and the yellow pearlescent card is by Hobbycraft. I coloured the image with Promarkers and then after cutting I used Distress Ink on the edges. I used a strip of cream lace across the bottom of the card and then used a Marianne die to cut the swirls in green pearlescent card. The green swirls are to echo the swirls in CraftyGirl's design. I topped the swirls with an Art and Crafts Diecuts Ltd flower. I've had this book of diecuts for at least a couple of years and never used any of the images before. I cut three layers of the flower out and then layered them trying to keep them quite flat (for posting purposes) before adding some Glossy Accents and a yellow gem as the centre. It took me a long time to finish this card because I started it before I took time off to go to my brother's funeral and then couldn't get started again. It was one of those cards that just don't come easily. I eventually finished it and now I quite like it.

Please check out the OSAAT blog for details of the prizes on offer this week.
