Friends.....

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
A very quick post from me this morning as i am off to work in a mo (oh dear i am now on a split shift as someone has called in sick, now working 9-3 and then 6-10pm so apologies if i don`t get around to all your blogs :( )
I am entering my card today into the following challenges:
1.A Gem Of A Challenge - Ribbon and Lace
2.The Crazy Challenge - Challenge 168 - Bling it up
3.Love To Create Challenge - Challenge 109 - Colour inspired

6.Crafting For All Seasons Challenge - Challenge 74 - Dies and Punches
7.Creative Inspirations Challenge - Challenge 259 - Lovely Lace
8.Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Challenge 83 - Anything goes with ribbon

Products used are:

I have used promarkers whilst the card was still in the Tonic frame dies to colour it.

Hobbyhouse roses
Pearls
Martha Stewert Butterfly punch
Cream lace
Black Lace
Cream and Pink ribbons
Inkylicious sentiment stamp.

A pic of the main bits.

A close up to show the lace and sparkle better.

I was really unsure of this card when i first started to asssemble it all together but i am quite pleased with how it has turned out.
Thanks so much for looking, it means a lot :D
Lotsa Hugs
