Thinking of you

Good afternoon! Today I want to share with you a card that I created for the guest designer call over at The Digi Bells DT blog.  The challenge was to create a card/project using any Elisabeth Bell image and add lace/ribbon.  The image I used is Willow with Flower Basket from Whiff of Joy. I added both paper lace and ribbon to my card.

The sketch that I used is from the challenge over at Whiff of Joy.  I decided to flip the sketch.

I created my card using three shades of blue card stock (waterspout, royal and blue lightening). I created the paper doily by punching around a circle (cut out of white card stock) using an eyelet lace corner punch. I added a piece of sheer blue ribbon across the center of the card. I added three sheer light blue ribbon roses that I won from a blog candy a few months ago.  I added a bow that I made out of the same ribbon I added across the card.

Here is my finished card. . . .

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
