I'm oh so late for Ribbons and Lace ...

Hi everybody

This is a late posting of my DT card for the   One Stop Craft Challenge.   We are also having a DT call this week, so if you fancy being part of this fab team, then please enter our challenge and all you have to do is add DT hafter your name.

We have a fairly easy theme - Ribbons and Lace.

For my card  I have tried to give it a slightly vintagey fell, with non-tradtional colours.  The papers are MME Lost & Found Christmas.  I have used a new LOTV image - I think she is really cute.  I have coloured with Copics, and did not want a stark white fur on her coat so added some Copics underneath to get the slightly creamy colour.  I think used Stickles and some Glamour dust on top while it was still wet.  The paper edges have been distressed and coloured with Vintage Photo DI, and I have added stickles around the edge of that as well.  The lace has ribbon threaded through it, and I have added a handmade flower, some leaves and berries.  The sentiment is Stampin Up.

This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, who are offering
