Totally Gorjuss, Just Magnolia & Embellish Magazine

Hello everyone!
Today I want to share my cards, the first one is for 2 challenges. At Totally Gorjuss this week challenge is a beautiful sketch. Click the link to go to the blog and check out the fabulous DT creations.
The second challenge is for the Just Magnolia . This week challenge is paper pleating. I did a little bit different from the sample pleating. I'm tired of using my ribbon as flat and I'm not good at tying too so I tried to crochet it. I used it as a frame of my image and I love how it turned out. Check out all the beautiful cards from the DT for inspiration.

Products used:
Pink Paislee- paper
Magnolia- image stamp
Prima- flowers
Ranger- stickles
Offray- ribbon
Making Memories- pink ribbon
Other- pearl and crochet flower by me
I entered this card at Embellish Magazine . This week is color challenge with hearts. I love this color combo red, pink and black. As you can see I crocheted the ribbon for my hearts frame like my first card. I'm so glad I used the flower lace that I made for the very first time. I love it, I have to make more. And again go check out all the gorgeous creations of the DT for inspirations.

Products used:
Paper Accent- white cardstock
Bazzil- red cardstock
Making Memories- ribbon, buttons
Ranger- stickles
Doodlebug- brad
Other- sentiment stamp & lace flower by me
Thank you so much for stopping by and your comments are greatly appreciated. Have a wonderful day!

What a lovely card you've made for TG and Just Magnolia. I love the colours you used. I tried the paper pleating for Just Magnolia but yours is much nicer than mine. Never tried crocheting ribbon for a card. I've meant to crochet flowers but never got round to it!
Thanks for joining us at TG and good luck.
