Ribbons/lace CCC

Hello ladies,

Im dragging up the rear with this card as I am 2 days late in posting it, we've had internet problems with Virgin but now that it is foxed here goes.

This is for my CCC entry that Carol chose which was ribbons or lace.  I love the ribbon tied around this holly wreath with Teddy Bo peeping through the middle!  Ive coloured him with Polychromos and blended them with lavendar oil (havent got sansodor or baby oil yet!) so there's a subtle aroma on the card too!  Maybe it would have been better if I'd found a xmas scented oil instead?!  Still, at least I'll sleep well tonight!
Thanks Carol for that challenge, ribbons and lace isnt something Id automatically grab when making a xmas card so it was good to think outside of the box!  
We've had an afternoon of blue skies and sunshine so a slow walk through the woods with the dogs has been great after all of the rain of late.
I'll be back tomorrow with a card Ive made for my special sister in law's birthday.

Thank you for your visit, it makes it all worthwhile!

Can almost smell the aroma Keryn, never heard of doing that but I guess it makes sense, it'oil based.

Dare I say we has some sunshine as well about 4pm and despite all the rain overnight it's quite warm, fine as long as you don;t walk in the paddocks, it's knee high and the boys can;t understand why they are jot allowed.

Apart from churning it up because it so wet, Ben in particular would be down with lamanitis within the hour. His stomach always did rule his head.

Lovely card BTW.

Hi Keryn

Love the sound of the scented oil making your card smell nice.

I can remember doing a card once with roses on and a sentiment of "take time to smell the roses" and someone asked me if it smelt of roses. You never know perhaps my next one might LOL!!

Cute image beautifully coloured by the way.

Love Jules xx
