Elegant friends

   To make this card I began by wrapping cream satin ribbon round the middle of navy card before matting it onto cream card. From cream centura pearl card I used tattered lace dies to cut pieces for the border. The corners are cut from one of the victorian corner dies and the side pieces are pieces cut from the over the edge flourish border.
   The stamp used for the image is the Frou Frou two of a kind stamp from Crafter's Companion and I coloured it using Promarkers, inking the edges with distress ink. I matted this onto cream centura pearl card.
   Finally I added a bow.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Tattered Lace - elegant
   Whoopsi Daisy - 2 or more dies
   Dream Valley - favourite colour combo
   Cafty Catz - anything goes
   The Pink Elephant - anything goes
