Dutch Dare Challenge #188

This week at Dutch dare our challenge is to use lace and ribbon!  And our wonderful sponsor is Di's Digi.

For my card I decided to try to stay ahead with my Christmas cards... and to use a stamp that...gulp... had not yet been inked... yikes... I've gotten sooo hooked on digis that I have not played with my stamps in quite awhile.  This one is by Penny Black and it's called Mimi dear.

For this card I used paper from Basic Grey - Nordic holiday.  I used as well some card stock from BBP.  I used a few dies (Layered poinsettia, Fleur de lis rectangle, scallop circle, classic circle all from Spellbinder.  I also used Dee's wreath builder for the leaves). The ribbon and lace are from my stash.  I don't  do a lot of cards with lace... so this was a challenge for me.  I have it and love the look of it but I don't  use it a lot... what can I say that's why they call it a challenge right?!?

Here's the closer image of the stamped mimi.  I used my copics to color her up and then added some Liquid Appliqué and some glitter ritz.  I used the gathered twig distress ink all around the image and sentiment.
Here's a closer look at the sentiment.  I also added some Liquid Appliqué on it with some glitter ritz.  The sentiment is from a fabulous set over at Create with TLC.  You should go and check it out.
I hope that you will be joining us this week Dutch dare.  Don't  forget to check out the wonderful creations done by my fellow DT!
