Winter Wonderland (DT) Ribbons & Lace

It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!  Not quite five to five, so no CrackerJack pencil for you today, but it is WINTER WONDERLAND day!  Thank you for your fabulous entries for last week's challenge - don't forget to check back to the blog on Sunday to see who the Winner and Top 3 are.

So, to this week's challenge - it's a feminine one for you this time - Ribbons & Lace.  Oh gawd!  Regular readers will know of my ribbon phobia.  Actually I should, I think, expand that to a fabric phobia - so although my ribbon is real, it is pretty basic use of one, and my lace is faux.  So there.  (grin).

Our sponsor for this week is CRAFTERS COMPANION offering a £10 voucher for their fabulous store so that's extra incentive for you to join us for a fun time.

The DT have produced their usual high standard of amazing inspiration for you, and have been somewhat more adventurous with their ribbons and lace than I have!  Here is my card:

Ingredients for this are:
Stamped Image: LOTV Christmas Surprise
Medium: Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers:  Making Cards freebies (ages old)
Sentiment: LOTV (from the Postmarks collection)
Extras:  Magnolia Swedish Lace die, Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilities die, star gem, Anita's Sticky Ribbon

Hope you will find time to join us this week
Hugs Sxx

Sorry about the random text highlighting - I have NO idea why this is happening!

Fun card! I'm sure there is a ribbon phobia support group out there that can help you embrace all things ribbonish! I like the fake lace--it rocks.
