Ribbon, lace, flowers and twine.......................

Here we are with another challenge............................
This is a new one for me, and OH, how delicious.
The Ribbon Reel is a UK site that sells, among other crafty items, ribbon and trim, 668 of them according to their site. Take a look.
The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog has this image as their inspiration for the current challenge.
When I saw the lovely duck egg blue, I was smitten. Challenge #57 'Picnics'

 
The challenge is to use the image for colour inspiration, and to include, ribbon, flowers, twine, and lace.
Here is my card:-
 

 
 
The upper background is purchased card. The lower background is a lovely, tiny floral, Penny Black stamp, coloured with distress stain. The edge is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
The digital image was purchased from Etsy.
 
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
