Hi Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite, either ribbon or lace (and don't forget to say why it's your favourite).

I have used both on my card, but I do love lace more as I think it makes a card look a bit extra special and gives it more texture.  I must admit though that there isn't always a place for lace and only ribbon will do.

This is a stamp from Saturated Canary called Crafty Cat, which I have coloured with copics and I've also added glossy accents to the glasses.  The lace is a narrow lace which I have placed back to back and put a pearl string in the centre. I have added cheesecloth under the image which is cut out with a Little Darlings Fancy Squares die, added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment tags from LOTV are stamped with silver metallic ink.  I've also stitched around all the layers on my machine, but that's not very clear on the photo, and added a few pearls here and there.

The sponsor of this challenge is
£10 voucher

So if you'd like to hop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see the lovely cards from my  team mates.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ribbon Girl - Any Card
Sir Stampalot - Animal Magic
Paper Shelter - For a special moment
Crafty Addicts 33 - Anything Goes/Add a Sentiment
Cute Card Thursday - Lace/Frills
Winter Wonderland - Spring Fever - Flowers

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave.
