A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Ribbon and Lace

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is "Ribbon and Lace", we want to see both on your creation.  I've used one of Janet's new Jodie digis for my card, Jodie with Cupcake, you'll find it in the Pink Gem shop here. The sentiment is from the Grungy Sentiments set, you'll find it here
 I've used my Promarkers to colour the image, and the sentiment, which I printed onto white card, I also frantaged two of the corners and added red gems to the cherries.  I used a Spellbinders Lacy Ovals die to cut out the image to add to the pretty, lacy look.
The papers are Papermania, Bellisima, I'm a little bit in love with these scrummy papers at the moment, there's not not one sheet in the whole pack that isn't utterly gorgeous.
I added a length of lace with some pink satin ribbon layered on top, tucked beneath the image, then topped it with a large double bow for my ribbon and lace element.  I then further embellished with a flower made with a Spellbinders die and a frantaged middle, tiny punched flowers, pearls and gems.
