ruffles and roses

There's a ruffles and photo inspiration challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room. I'm inspired by the girliness of it, and made some ribbon roses to go with the ruffles. The ruffles are created by pleating a paper doily, which I had inked the edges. Do remember to ink both the front and back of the doily though. Otherwise when it's pleated, the whites of the back will show. Then ink some more to highlight the folds.

This card was actually based on a sketch over at CardPatterns. However, by the time I finished it, the challenge already closed. Oh well!

So instead I'm playing along with Delightful Challenges (flowers), My Mum's Craft Shop (to die for), Aud Sentiments (no sentiments), Sew many Challenges (anything goes), Stamp Something (anything goes), Papertake Weekly (fancy a punch?), Crafty Creations (anything goes) and The (Paper) Trail Makers (challenge #3 create your own flowers)
