CD Sunday - Ribbon, Lace and Gems

Lovely blue sky and sunshine whilst I am writing this.  Let's hope it stays that way for the Bank Holiday.
Wendy has chosen our theme for this weeks challenge and strangely I found it difficult to make up my mind about what I would do for this one. My fellow teamies seemed to find it easier and time was getting on and I hadn't produced anything.  It was something to do with using lace and ribbon together.  Don't ask why - I don't know - I have plenty of both.
Anyway I have made a card that I like and here it is .......

 Yes it has ribbon and gems but the lace is the lace effect of the fan blades. It does look like lace in real life even though it is card.
I used a blue backing paper from Joanna Sheen's 'Elegant Fans' Cd  to outline the blades and the support.  The flowers were made using the same backing paper printed on parchment.  There is plenty of space on the back of the fan on which to add a sentiment. The bow and gems were from stash.

I have chosen my Top 3 for the 'Deco Drama' Challenge and the results are on the Challenge Blog. I look forward to hearing from the winner.

So have a good rummage for ribbons, lace and gems and I will see you on the Blog.
Have a good week.


  1. This is such a beautiful creation Carol. The blue backing paper behind the die cuts looks amazing as do your gorgeous flowers. I really must join in CD Sunday this week, I have been going through a "colouring in" faze at the moment! Hugs Michelle x

  2. Wow Carol, this is stunning, I have to agree with Michelle - the blue behind the die cuts really make it pop. With the addition of the blue flowers and ribbon bringing it altogether.
