A new Rhedd and Rosie's challenge!

Hello bloggers!

Today it's time for another Rhedd and Rosie's challenge.... this time the theme is Ribbons and Lace.
Here's my DT make for the challenge...

Believe it or not, there is actually some ribbon there, hidden under the layer of lace!  I've used a wooden heart shape from Craft Shapes Torbay, I painted it with Gesso and then stamped Leafy Branch (from Designs by Ryn) in Versafine Lagoon.   The butterfly dies are from Memory Box, the 'Art' word is from a set by Inkylicious.  The background I made with Kraft card and a wood-grain embossing folder.

Here's a message from our sponsors this fortnight......

Craft Shapes Torbay is a husband & wife team run from workshops in the sunny seaside town of Torquay in Devon.
It was created to help Kim, who originally set up her company Dotty Heaven who makes personalised and bespoke wooden gifts. She was finding it very difficult to source the right shapes and designs for her customers - and wanted to offer something a little different to the "run of the mill" craft shapes available for purchase on the internet.
Husband, Ashley researched different methods of wood cutting and after a year of using a CNC machine they decided to invest in a Laser Cutting machine.
Craft Shapes Torbay is still in it's early stages but in it's first 6 months of business is going from strength to strength - with a portfolio of over 100 designs already. New shapes and designs are being created every day and they welcome requests on new deigns too.

And here's the fab prize they are giving away to the winner!!

Go on ladies, have a go, it's good fun!  Thank you for popping by, please leave me a 'hello' comment! xxxxx
(PS, sorry about the font changes.... don't know what I've done there lol!!)
