Inspired by violets .....

6th February - At last, I've found time to make some cards!!  I coloured one of Andreas' Hanglar stamps with Copics at the Durham crop last Friday night - this little gardening girl with her cart and gardening equipment has been mounted on some green card which tones with her boots! The background paper is by Wendy at the Clipart Fairy.
I added some 22mm guipure lace above the strip of green card and added some 25mm mauve satin ribbon.  I added quite a lot of Stardust Stickles to enhance the image. Lace, ribbon and stickles all from Ribbon Girl

Violet coloured flowers from Wild Orchid have been placed on top of green leaves made with my favourite Martha Stewart leaf punch - I also used the leaves as 'corners' and enhanced them with a violet coloured rhinestone.  I will enter this card into the Daring Cardmakers challenge and also the Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar challenge 'with ribbons'
Oh dear, it's so long since I made a card, I've just noticed I didn't shape the ends of the satin ribbon before photographing the card lol!
