Lil Lolita Challenge #5

Can you believe it has been a week since our last challenge already? Time really does seem to fly these days.
Thanks to everyone who joined us in the blue challenge be sure to pop over to Lil Lolita Boutique to see if you are a winner.

This week Kellie has given us the challenge of Ribbons. Now normally this is not something I would have trouble with (my cards often have ribbons on them) but today I was full steam ahead with my card and forgot all about them. I ended up incorporating some ribbon and lace but not as much as I may have liked to for such a challenge. Kel has been very generous and given us all one of the new Lolita's to play with, yes I said new Lolita's. If you have not seen them, then where have you been LOL! You can check them out at Tickled Pink Blog  and they are available for pre-order here.

I got the super cute 1930's Lylah which I was rapped with as I am loving vintage at the moment. I have based this weeks card on the sketch over at Friday Sketches.

Normally when I am looking for a sketch I check out all my fav sites but today as soon as I saw this one I knew I wanted to use it. Now as I said I went full steam ahead with this card as it was looking so fantastic in my head but when I ended up finishing it it did not live up to my expectations. Not saying that I don't like it I do but it is just not how I was seeing it as I was making it. I am sure you will understand where I am coming from.

Please be sure to pop by the DT's blogs and see what they have been up to, you will not be disappointed and make sure you join in with us this week as there is a prize for grabs.

Well I better get going with dinner duties!
