Double D Challenge Lavender and Lace

New challenge starts today at
Double D and the theme is 
Lavender and Lace
and using the  gorgeous mood board below!
You should see the beautiful creations the 
Design team has....WOW...you must head over there and take a peek!!



For my card, I used a very  new die just recently released from
Elizabeth Craft dies 'Gatefold-Elegant Roses'



I made this card in no time at all....
the die cut like a dream
and it makes a pretty large card.

I basically used a lavender card stock for the base and a pretty
piece of lavender floral designer paper for the background.

The die has a little hole on each die cut piece to run a ribbon through
to tie shut.



I glued a flower on the ribbon,
 but need to rethink that as now it won't untie...lol.
I think next time I will make some kind of a pullout sentiment so
the bow can be permanently tied shut.
When I have more time I intend to play around with this die
a bit more, but isn't it beautiful, so delicate!

So, head on over to Double D
see all the 'pretties' there and join in with us,
we always have a fabulous prize to give away! 

Entering the following challenges:
Scrapy Land .... ATG with Die
DL.Art February Linky Challenge.... ATG

Diane, this card is so pretty. That is an amazing, intricate die cut. Beautiful ribbon too. I love that this card is so elegant, but was easy to make.

This is beautiful I love that die cut fold! Perfect colors too of course! I think I would just send it with a frame, maybe add a panel on the back (think top fold) and write the message there, tell them it's only for show. Even that ribbon is gorgeous! VERY pretty!

Oh, it's so beautiful, and such pretty paper! Delicate and feminine all over. I know you'll come up with many pretty designs for this one. I absolutely love the gate fold design, even if it doesn't open.
