Imagine- Ribbon Girl DT Card

Good morning peeps!

It's first Sunday of the month, we have a new card challenge for you 
at The Ribbon Girl Blog. The theme is Add Flowers.

For my DT card, I used this new stamp from Crafts and Me
The image is called "Winter Rose" by Zindy Nielsen.

I water colored the image with TH Black Soot Distress Ink Pad.
I added a rub-on sentiment " imagine" on the image panel.

DPs used are Pion Designs Alma's Sewing Room.
Dies used are Memory Box and Go Kreate Large #7.
I used the Go-Kreate die as a template and drew a larger frame
as I wanted to used the 6x6 DP as the background.

I framed the image with 2 Memory Box wreath die cuts, and
added strips of DPs and laces below the image.

I distressed all paper edges and decorated the card with flowers, tiny metal clip,
tiny safety pin, a Melissa Francis resin key hole, and a tiny key charm.

I pulled out the fiber strings from a piece of Jute Mesh, and used them to
weave a small wreath. I tugged this little wreath under the beaded berries.

I have used the following gorgeous items, all available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm "Rebecca" Ivory Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace;
17mm "Cordelia" Ivory Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace;
50mm Ivory Jute Mesh; 20mm 'Angelica' Ivory Tulle Lace;
Pale Pink Lily Flower WOC; Ivory/Cream Beaded Berries K&G;
White Stamens WOC; Tiny Key Charm.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
