Gem of a Challenge Ribbon & Lace (use both)

Good morning All, I hope you are all well, Its My Birthday today I am 21 again lol, We have a New challenge for you at Gem of a Challenge this fortnight we want you to use Ribbon & Lace, For my card I have used one of the fabulous vintage images called Rose and I have tried to give this card a real vintage feel, I have coloured her with my Graph'It markers, spellbinder fancy oval die cut frame, backing paper is from Paper Cellar ribbon, lace and flower are all from stash.
The prize as always is a choice of 2 beautiful digital images from the store no sets or watermarks. You have two weeks to enter, You do not have to use Pink Gem images, but we do love to see them, but you must follow the theme of Ribbons and lace and you must use both on your project, why not visit PINKGEM DESIGNS....  and see all the beautiful New images that are now available. I do hope you will join in with us, I look forward to seeing what you create.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

This card has a lovely vintage fell. That ribbon and rose are so perfect with this pretty image.

MaryH said...

You succeeded beautifully with your vintage look. This is a most lovely image, and the sepia tones you chose to color this pretty lady were perfect to create the atmosphere you were going for. The beautiful lace simply added another level to the vintage feel. So very pretty & well done. Happy Birthday too! TFS & Happy Sunday.
