Joy in Life

Whoopie, made my HM card this challenge in the first week not at the very last minute. I stamped my image with brown ink and used coloured pencils to colour it....that's the easy bit.  I eventually decided to go with a pale pink layer and that grew into a lattice frame... with a bit of wangling I managed to enlarge the frame by part die cutting it and moving the die so it fit with the lattice, turning it around and through the machine half way again, the fit was just perfect for my cut down image panel.  Then I stamped my sentiment in Pearl Gold EP and die cut with a label die and threaded some ribbon through the holes.  I die cut some leaves and arranged a paper flower and buds with a bow in the corner.  I am playing along at House Mouse and Friends challenge HMFMC #22 - Optional theme Ribbons or Bows. And also Southern Girls Challenge - Team Lou - Diecuts.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day
