Bingo: Image, ribbon and pearls

Today is the start of  a new challenge over at Catch the Bug - it's BINGO week. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-f636ufdO6Gk/WI5_zh3kSuI/AAAAAAAAJX8/HxPUS8bOPbYmy4pVSsVYP_YZa0qoOXAUwCLcB/s400/February%2B2017.pngI went with the top row of ribbon, Bugaboo image (Rose Vases) and pearls.

I colored with Spectrum Noirs, added WoS on the roses and sponged spun sugar DI on the white background.
Then I used my favorite stash element at the moment - the sentiment stamps I got as a Christmas calendar gift. Unfortunately I don't know the brand as the set wasn't in it's original wrapping, but I love how you can build our own sentiments using this set.
I added a few pearls and ribbon, I've held on to this for a while, it was part of a wrapping of some Christmas decoration I bought, and I love the gingham pattern. I also want to share this card over at As You Like It: even though I love lace I prefer ribbon because it's easier to add later in the card making process. I hadn't planned on using ribbon here to keep it CAS, but I felt my card lacked something on top, so I added the ribbon as a final finishing touch.

This card is for:
Sweet Stampers - #4 Add a Sentiment
Crafty Gals Corner - #110 Use Your Favorite Things (unknown sentiments stamps)
As You Like It Challenge - Do You Prefer Ribbon Or Lace

Lovely feminine card Pia - I like lace too but I think ribbon gives a clean and crisp finish to any card. x

This is very pretty and I think the ribbon was the right addition. Yes, I really love sentiment sets that you can use to build your sentiments - although I always lose the most useful words like 'a' and 'you'!
