Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Ribbons and Lace

Ribbons and Lace, a girl can never have too much.
I have rolls, bits, pieces of ribbon and piles of lace.
So what did I do.....make a digital card.

For better or worse here it is....

I started with the cabinet card from Susee Que's.  The 
actual photo used is here.
Next, I went thru my image collection and selected anything that I 
thought would go.   Added, subtracted, re-sized and layered until I was pleased
with the effect.  
Thanks to
Idgie's Heartsong for fabric and lace strips
Background lace and aqua ribbon - unknown.

I did find an old made by hand creation that uses elements
recycled from a vest found at a thrift store.
This vest had gorgeous fabric, lace, pearls, buttons and other
pretty trims.

And, there is still lots left of it to use.

Lovely! You are so clever doing the digital as its really difficult. I love the cabinet photo you chose, both of the projects are brilliant! Cx

Your digital card is lovely, I've always wanted to try to make digital creations but haven't gotten there yet. Love the angels and those buttons on your handmade creation!
