New Card Challenge - The Ribbon Girl - Squidgy and Teddy

Good morning everyone,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and the week is off to a good start. I have returned to work today after having a very relaxing week off.

So on with the task in hand,  we have a new card challenge at the Ribbon Girl as always it's anything goes as long as its a card (any shape, any design). 

I have coloured a Stamping Bella stamp called Squidgy and Teddy using DI reinkers.

The papers are from the Maja Sofiero collection called White Sand and Blush/Rouge and have been edged with white gesso.

The die along the left hand side is a Joy Stars banner die which has been cut twice once in white card and secondly in coordinating papers.

The die peeping out on the right hand side is a Marianne die which is an Anjas Vintage die.

I have placed some gorgeous octagonal iridescent flat back string along the left hand side and cut off a couple of of the octagons and placed them above and below the image.

Along the top edge I've added some beautiful white pom pom trim.

The pink flower is a gorgeous magnolia flower with some beaded white stamens each side of it.

The beautiful Guipure lace is called 'Jessica' and I've place some white double row pearl trim along the top edge.

The bow has been made out of pink flowery organza ribbon and finished off with a beautiful diamante pearl embellishment.

On the base of the card which doesn't show up too well is some more of the Jessica lace, double row pearl trim and I've cut a tag and created a bow out of 'Leah' white scallop flat lace, finishing off with another octagonal cut from the string.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Dress: Victorian Velvet
Teddy: Tea Dye, Gathered Twigs, Spun Sugar, Black Soot
Heart: Gansai Tambi Paint No. 34
