Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes with Option Ribbons & Lace

Good Morning and welcome back to the latest challenge at Besties UK ... today we have a new challenge the theme is

Anything Goes Ribbons & Lace

(must be Ribbon and Lace )

You can enter the challenge here 'My Besties UK' we have some fab digis as prizes and a special priced digi available to purchase, the rules are up to 3 entries with a Bestie Image and one without so you can enter up to 4 times ....

You can enter an ANYTHING GOES project or a Ribbons & Lace project (both items must be used and must be stated on you blog to qualify for the extra digi)

This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this image Daisy Do all cleaning by Day, she can be purchased at the store here



1 sheet A4 card
1/2 sheet blue card 
1/2 sheet blue patterned paper
Lace doily

Spellbinders dies - circles and scalloped circles
Woodware daisy punch in 3 sizes

To make this card I used a base card of 18 x 13 cm and layered the blue card and paper onto this at 17.5 x 12.5 and 17 x 12
I added the lace doily to the card then added strips of 3 x 17.5 cm and 2 x 17.5cm to make the centre strip then added the ribbon to the is part before attaching to the centre of the card.
Using the ribbon I tied a bow on the left hand side over the ribbon and added some pearls to the corners

With the blue card I cut a scalloped circle  and used the plain circle to cut my image outside of the shape, she is coloured with Copics
I punched several daisies and some leaves from the remaining paper and some white card which I then shaped glues together and added some pearls to finish.

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, r20
Clothing w00, 1, 3, 6 b32, 34, 37
Hair e37
Eyes b32, 34, 41

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
