Ribbon & Lace & Pion Design Papers

Hello everyone!!  Welcome to my little blog!!
  Are you still recovering from Christmas???  I know I am.  Hope you all had an awesome day!!  Not long and we'll be celebrating the New Year!!  Is it just me or are the years flying by a lot quicker these days?  Getting scary how it all just slips by so fast!  
As you can guess I have a card to share with you.  This one was again made with the Pion Papers I won a little while ago.  Adore these papers, they are awesome and so easy to work with!!
 I used the 6' x 6' papers again for this.  Cut the base paper and tore a couple of strips for the layers.  Distressed them all and did a little doodling with my white gel pen, then layered the lace in between.
 The leaf flourish is from the Kraft Expression range from Little Birdie.  They are available at 'Cheap as Chips' here in Australia.  
 The small rose is from Kaisercraft and the other flowers came from Seriously Scrapbooking.
 I also added some gauze underneath and the small pearl stamens.
 The ribbon used here was actually wrapped around the papers.  It is so pretty I just had to use it too and popped in a couple of stamens when I made the bow.
 The strips inside were edged with Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Border Punch.

There you have it!!  As I said before, I simply adore these Pion Papers they are so lovely and so easy to work with.
