Papertake Weekly - Ribbons & Pearls

Hi girls. Great to have you here visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy your time looking at my cards. Thank you all so much for being patient with me yesterday I am feeling a bit better and have hopefully caught up with most of my commenting.
Today's card was made for the Papertake Weekly Challenge where the order of the day was "Ribbons and Pearls". I have inked up one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps called"The Little Things" and I have coloured it using my Copics. Doesn't that pair look cute. The paper is double sided from American Crafts and are called "Truly Inspiring" and I have used Bazzil as a mount. The flowers are Wild Orchid and I have used Martha Stewart border and leave punches. The pearls and ribbon are from my stash.
I hope that if you see something in this card worth commenting on that you will be able to find an extra minute to let me know what it is. I love to hear from you.
I hope that as you start off a new week that everything you plan goes well and that you enjoy your crafting. Above all stay safe and healthy.
