CCT Tie it Up!

This week on Cute Card Thursday we want you to 'tie it up' and our sponsor for this challenge is the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

I had this odd shaped piece of card already in my stash, cut from Sahara Sand card by SU! with one edge shorter than the other.  I had thought about adding a border, but in the end kept it as it was with the ribbon to tie it up!  The patterned papers are by Nitwits and I embossed the edges with faux stitching before inking with Pumice Stone DI.  I had to have a play with my new Marianne dies so have cut the Anja's Vintage frame and Vintage Ornaments (2) as my decoration.  The butterflies and daisy flower are old friends, but Anja's leaves have only just joined my collection.

Here's the inside with a text stamped onto another Marianne die and the Marianne corners creating a holding spot for a gift voucher.

And the list of Marianne dies I used is:
Anja's Vintage frame LR0272
Anja's Vintage ornaments LR0270
Anja's leaves LR0226
daisy flower and fronds LR0106
butterflies LR0158
Inside frame LR0116
corners LR0143
embossed faux stitches created with LR0161

And the back is simply another of Anja's Vintage ornaments used to hold the ribbon in place.  I've inked the embossed areas on the die cuts with the same DI, although I forgot to ink the base layer on the front of the card to make the embossed dots stand out - next time!

As I've used quite a few of my Marianne dies for this creation, I can enter the Marianne's Design Divas challenge yet again .. ..
