Craft Rocket Challenge Number 25 Ribbon and/or Lace

Hello All.
Today's post is the latest Craft Rocket Challenge The them is Ribbon and or/Lace. So over the next fortnight you are invited to enter/post a new project following the above theme - no backdating please. I'd love to see your names on the entries. I did notice JACKIE's name on the last one.

This challenge threw me a bit because I have never used lace on a card and the only ribbon/bows I have added to cards have been paper/card ones as almost a focal point on the card.
A few weeks ago another blog Cotswold Crafter posted this idea and as I needed to make a card for a friend, knowing this challenges needed ribbon or lace I thought I'd give it a go and I was very pleased at how it has turned out
5x7 card blank
Sue Wilson Pierced Noble background dies (my new favourite as they're for 5x7 card size)
white and green cardstock
Crafters Companion EF
Patterned paper created in Serif (it is double sided, it's pale pink on the reverse)
Sentiment printed in Serif
Tonic - circle dies 


  1. Love it Karen, I, too made one of this design, it's great, xxx

  3. Your card is absolutely stunning Karen. There's so much lovely detail. I've had a go at paper pleating but nowhere near as lovely as this. Barbxx
