Take a city or a country break with the Rainbow Lady

Hi there, this week at Rainbow Lady's Challenge. Cynthia has another great theme, she wants to see your creations inspired by the theme of a Country or a City break. We have a generous sponsor again this week, our lucky winner with receive a prize from the lovely Sharon Duncan. The DT were lucky enough to have some of Sharon's gorgeous embossabilities papers to work with. Unfortunately my horrible photography skills don't do this lovely bp any justice at all  so you'll have to take my word for how nice they are.

I changed the colour of the bp in picassa, a bit of a nightmare for me as I'm a complete technophobe lol. The image is an Oliver's Orchard stamp, painted with distress inks and die cut with a nestie. I've added some raffia lace, blue ribbon, cream ribbon and lots of paper flowers with faux pearl centres. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft your passion: Show us your layers
Crafty Emma's: spring colours/image
Pile it on: Two or more ribbons
Stamping Vacation: ribbon over lace
Stamptacular Sunday: Pile it on (I've managed 6 layers)
Thanks for visiting today
