Roses and Ruffles

It was our girly craft night last night,and after our tea and home baked rock cakes, we all made centre step cards using my B-C-E template.  A couple of us went vintage, using up some of an old (and by old I mean pre Adorable Scorable) Hunkydory kit called Lovely in Lace, which I bought from Create and Craft several years ago as part of a bargain mixed pack which had several collections together in one goody bag, with contents varying from bag to bag.  Needless to say there's still tons left, as I don't make all that many cards with ready made toppers or decoupage, but it was nice to revisit some older stash, something that I've been trying to do lately, with varying success!
 I made the card base from printed cardstock, then chose a rose design twisted pyramage topper, which I layered up with foam pads and matted on to green card.  The tags, sentiment and circle embellishments are from the same kit, I just jazzed them up a bit with some gems and matted the sentiment on to green card.
Next it was ribbon time.  I went mental with it.  Pink satin.  Green satin.  Pink organza.  Lace.  Ruffles.  A large bow.  Tied to tags.  Ooohhh, I do love a bit of ribbon!
