Vintage Seamstress - The Paper Shelter

OMG back again !!!! Amazing what being on DT makes you do. Still not really in the cardmaking blogging frame of mind but needs must. I did go to the opticians today and new glasses will be ready tomorrow so hopefully my head will clear. I am going to sort out a gift voucher for putting up with my bad blogging at the end of the week as an apology for not stating what wonderful cards you have been making over the past few weeks so watch this space.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter where we want to see you 'Use those Ribbons'.
For my card today I have used an image that I instantly fell in love with when it appeared a few weeks ago, Vintage Seamstress'.

She is such a cutie. No die cuts today just straight cutting. The DP was from Create and Craft 'Grandma's Sewing Box' but I can't remember who produced it. Measuring tape ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, charms from Live and Love Crafts (I think?) Sentiment from LOTV and buttons from my stash. All mounted on Coordinations.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Prisma Pencils. There is also a hint of Walnut distress ink around her. I added some viva decor pearl to the pin heads and to her earring.

Of course our prize as always is a $30 voucher to spend in the store if you use a TPS image or 3 digis of your choice for any other image

My other teamies have made some fab cards for your inspiration this week and I hope you will pop over and have a look at them, and of course enter the challenge.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time to look
