LIFE IS A JOURNEY ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #62}

This week our theme for Challenge #62 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is ANYTHING GOES WITH RIBBON & LACE I used Misteria and Colosseum  images from DigiStamps4Joy.  You can purchase the images here and here. The sentiment is a freebie from the amazing generous and inspirational Lisa {Decosse's Dynamite Doodles}.  


Another centre stepper. The design papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I have threaded ribbon through the buttons at the bottom and my lace is actually part of the design papers.   I have  coloured the images with Copics and used dry chalks on the sentiment. The flourishes were stamped with Chiswick Acrylic Stamps. I have used the {Doing Life} Wavy Lines template which you can find here, for the kraft coloured frame.

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your Anything Goes with Ribbon & Lace creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.62. Can't wait to see what you create.





Off to link this creation to the following challenges:

  17. Desire,
    Such a work of art, or I should say another "piece de resistance".
    I think I will have you as my e-mentor. The colors are vibrant and those folded flowers with the bows are just too sweet.
    We really love what you have created and posted with us this week.
    God Bless you,

  102. Just found your blog and love it. I have tried to vote for your card too but cant see where to do it :( if you let me know I can do it again.

  103. I can see the free spirited nature to this card that you mentioned. I also love your cool DT those funky button embellishments and that sentiment is one I am very proud of because the original saying "Life's a Journey...Pack for comfort", is completely and totally my own. It is one thing when I create sentiments based on existing quotes but it is a whole other thing when I come up with my own sayings and people love them and then use them as you have done here with this card.

    Thanks for entering this card as your second entry into my World Card Making Day Celebration Desíre. Now I am off to see the third!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
