Ribbon and /or lace at make My Monday

Hi everyone it's time for another challenge at Make My Monday 
and it's my turn to be the host. and I would like to see  
Ribbon and/or lace 
on your projects. So let your girly side free or not :o)
Here's mine, hope you like it
 The image is from IndigoBlu stamped with Versamark onto a vellum wrap and heat embossed with white detail EP. the flowers and leaves were decoupaged after being coloured with Whispers Stroke pens.

The pink square card is also used as a wrap around  an A5 white card which has been embossed top and bottom. behind the pink card wrap is a simple greeting and another image stamped in DI Picked Raspberry.

 The embossing  folded was placed over the folded white card which meant the lovely pattern appeared on both sides of the card...  front side embossed, back part debossed.
 ( I was gonna say backside! which can't be right lol )

I've wrapped the first ribbon layer around the torn velum, then folded another layer three times, securing each fold with a small amount of glue before adding the hat pins and the glittery yarn
 I used the same ribbon and yarn under the single flower embellishment and attached to the Stamping all day tag.

I've other photos showing the embossing on the inside and the wrap at the back where I've added stick on lace to disguise the glue under the vellum wrap but I decided, enough is enough!
Thank you for visiting me here in the "making room" I look forward to seeing your ribbon ans lace projects.

Edited: later that same day! :)

 There were things about this card I wasn't all that happy with. one being the glittery yarn... I've now changed it to bakers twine.... still not sure.
 I might havre to do a second version of this card to but right all the things that are niggling me. That's what happens when things "just grow"

A fabulous design Suzi, the flowers on parchment are so effective and I love that you have torn it. The contrast of the white and pink works so well and I like the glittery yarn you chose to use.
Have a good week.

The card is beautiful Sue and although I like the baker's twine my preference is for the pretty glittery yarn. I love the decoupaged vellum flowers and leaves and the way you folded the ribbon. The embossing on the base card is beautiful too.

BTW love your bird house/clock!
