INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 19 - Ribbon and lace

Happy Friday to you all,                       ( dérouler l'écran pour le texte français)
A very special day today, it is our youngest son's birthday, 22 years old. Time flies...
Once again, Christina and I welcome you to our inventory challenge. An all feminine theme this week: ribbon and lace.  I also went very baby girly too. I had inked Sleeping Baby Tingla, quite some time ago, and never got to color her. I have just received an order of cardstock from Stampin Up, and fell in love with Melon Mambo pink! Just had the inspiration for my card. I am kind of cheap when it comes to flowers, I find them so expensive, my friend Geneviève sent me a tutorial to make flowers, and I spend my afternoon yesterday practicing! Once you get the twist, it goes quite fast. And the result is pretty nice. Now, I must find a 6 petal flower punch!
So, grab yourself a gooooood coffee or a nice tea, and hop to my dear friend and team-mate Christina,  and follow your way to the other members of our team, to admire their wonderful creations. Thank you for dropping by, and for all your lovely comments.

Bon Vendedi à vous toutes,
Nous voici déjà vendredi ! Le 18 février, il y a 22 ans j'accouchais de notre plus jeune fils! Il me semble que c'était hier. C'est aussi notre Inventory Challenge. Cette semaine, un thème tout en féminité, ruban et dentelle; et je me suis lancée dans des affaires de bébé fille! J'ai coloré SleepingBaby Tingla, de la collection d'automne de Magnolia, et j'ai choisi d'utiliser un carton Stampin Up que je venais de recevoir, couleur melon mambo, (N'est-il pas assez beau!). J,adore ce rose. Lorsque vient le temps d'acheter des fleurs, je suis un peu gratte-sous... Ma bonne amie Geneviève a utilisé ce tutoriel dernièrement et  réussi des fleurs magnifiques. Je me suis donc lancée. Un coup, la façon de tourner les pétales bien rodée, le tour est joué! ce n'est pas trop difficile et le résultat est assez beau! Je suis pas mal fière.
Je vous invite à visiter ma compagne Christina, ansi que toutes celles qui se joignent à nous cette semaine, la liste est indiquée ci-haut, vous n'avez qu'a cliquer sur le nom.
Merci de votre visite et de vos gentils commentaires.

Une carte toute en douceur. Ça donne presque le goût d'avoir une petite fille.....nononononon.....L'image est à la hauteur de la carte tout calme, elle semble reposer tout doucement sur un nid de fleurs.... Bravo.

Beautiful card! Love your coloring and that gorgeous ribbon!!

Iulia a dit…

Adorable card, Danielle! Happy birtday to your son and to you too! When my child was 1 I felt more lie it was my birthday than on my real one:)) It's strange how they become more important than ourselves:)
Now, back to your card! Gosh, I just fell in love with your coloring! Is it copics? That sweet little baby girl is adorable. Also love the sentiment and that sweet perfect ribbon.
I don't know what to say about flowers being expensive. I've used to make my own flowers too. But they take me too much time, in which time I prefer to do the actual card:). If I only make 3 or 4 cards a week, I'd say Wild Orchid Crafts are not as expensive as that. And they are so beautiful!
Still, some cards look more beautiful with handmade flowers for a lovely personal touch.
Gosh, I have a long comment here. Sorry:)
Adorable card!
Hugs to you Danielle!
