Ribbons and Lace at Polkadoodles

Good morning all, another fab challenge over at Polkadoodles which this time is Ribbons and Lace. This fitted in quite well with a card I needed to make for a friend whose aunt is 70 this month.

I was asked to add a few photo's in but didn't want to go the usual way of putting them right on the front but rather hiding them a little.  I cut two square cards and joined them so they made  tri fold card.  I have decorated the front of the card with a huge 70 which I found in the Winston Collection, I was going to use it without a background but once I'd printed it I decided that it would look better if I cut it out so printed some backing papers from the latest W&P 9 collection, I just love the selection of papers available on here, and although the collection is called Love and Kisses as you can see these papers work really well for more general cards.

I have used the same flowery paper inside as mats to put the pictures on, I won't show you the inside as I'm not sure if it would go down too well. I used some white ribbon to tie the small card and hold it closed and there is some lace down the edge, I must stop buying so much lace as it's so pretty I don't want to use it!

There was a little of the backing paper left so I used it to cut out the butterflies, you can't really tell it's the same paper but the colours are the same so it works well.  I'm not sure you can see the glitter but there is plenty on there and I then finished the butterflies off with some pearls.

I found a verse and once printed I used a die to cut it out, that is all that is inside at the minute but I may add a bit more as if you've reached 70 you deserve a bit of bling.

So there you have it, hope you like it and you can come on over and join us, don't forget you could be a winner!
