Use Ribbon and Lace at A Gem of a Challenge

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good weekend.

I have 2 cards to share today so will get straight on with my first one.
Today is the start of a new A Gem of a Challenge
For the next 2 weeks our theme is 
Use Ribbon AND Lace

The prize for the winner is 2 Individual Digi images
of the winners choice from PINKGEM DESIGNS.....

Janet has recently released so many new gorgeous digis that I had trouble deciding which one to use. I finally picked Grace with Rose, she has such a pretty face and I love her hair.
The lace I have used is a lovely deep purple although it looks dark blue in my picture!

Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Pink Gem Designs Grace with Rose coloured with Promarkers
Stamp - Penny Black Scrolling Along (for edges of image)
Sentiment - LOTV Vintage Labels Occasions
Papers - very old, I think they are Papermania Henbury Lane
Ribbon and Lace from stash

If you take a look at A Gem of a Challenge you will see the gorgeous creations made by the rest of The Gems Team and see who were the winners of the last challenge.

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
The Inky Chicks - Lace Up Your card

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my first card of the day. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I'll be back soon with my Dies to Die for DT card.
Bye for now
