Lil Lolita's DT Challenge

Kellie loves to set her DTs little challenges - and we've been loving the new Lil Lolita range sooo much that our current challenges are all based on them - woohooo - any excuse to play with these cuties! This week Kellie has asked us to team one of the Lolita's with ribbon! Now I HAVE been getting better with using ribbon but when it's a "must have" I admit I've struggled.

I've ended up cheating a little - I made this card before the official Lil Lolita launch and hadn't posted her yet - I do have another card almost done - but the ribbon just isn't working for me on it - I have all sorts of ribbon EVERYWHERE at the moment - LOL. Soooo I'm using this one for the DT challenge - there is a little bit of ribbon on here - if you look close you CAN see it - there on the right with the dragonfly charm hanging off of it - LOL.

This is the lovely Ivy - and she's available now over at Tickled Pink Stamps. The frame was the one I made when I did THIS tutorial for TPS on faux wood frames - so now you get to see it all dressed up - LOL.

I'll post the card I'm working on soon - it will be interesting to see if it ends up with any ribbon on - but for now - it's off to bed for me - I have an early start taking my son off to tennis - and I'm duty mum so I best try and be awake - LOL.
