Creative Fingers Ribbon and Lace

Time for a new challenge at Creative Fingers and we have a lovely theme this week, Ribbon and Lace.  I could fill a room with all my ribbons but am strangely always looking for more when I'm in a craft shop!

This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Crafty Sentiments, heres my card

This card is for my friend who's birthday is the day before Halloween, Its such an adorable image from Crafty Sentiments.

I coloured her with Spectrum Noirs and I tried a new technique (not particularly successfully!) of not blending as much as normal to give a painted effect.  My background paper is from my pad I bought in my local Lidl, its lasting well!  My swirl dies are Marianne and my tag is Papermania.  Ribbon, lace and charm are all from my stash.  A few dots of pearly black cosmic shimmer to finish.

I love Autumnal tones and this image really suited the colours of my backing paper.  I just love the cheeky wee black cat hes the image of my old moggy Malachi or Minky as we call him for some reason.  I read somewhere if a cat approaches you with his tail like a question mark it means he's happy so the cat on this paper must be very content!

I hope you will get the chance to pop along to the Creative Fingers blog here and see what my wonderful Teammates have made to inspire you and find all the details of our challenge.
