Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #3

Good Afternoon there Lil Lolita fans.  Its Thursday and just ticked over 5pm so that means its time for a new challenge at Lil Lolita Boutique.  This week we want you to make something with:

No Patterned Paper

Oooooo this might be a little tricky??  or easy peasy?? So much you can do to make your own Patterned Paper - the list is pretty much endless I reckon:-)  But if your feeling a little uninspired go and check out what my fellow Design Team Members have made, their stuff will totally blow you away!!!  go on its here

Here is my take on it - hope you like it!!!

So as you can see I've used Sweet, Ivy, on my card.  I've also used a bit of scrap fabric from my Quilting Stash!!  Cool Huh??  Anyway, you can see that I've given Ivy a puppy, she is from Penny Black and I've attached the two together with a bit of skinny ribbon.... awww how cute:-)

I've been having a bit of a fiddle with Photoshop and I managed to crop my pic and add a simple watermark!!  Very impressed with myself:-)

Now get crackin' and make a card with no patterned paper, can't wait to see what you all make!!!!

my ingredients:
Paper:  Stampin' Up Kraft, Pink Cardstock
Embellishments: Moda Fabric, Pink Ribbon Mesh, Black Tassel Ribbon, Skinny Pink Ribbon, Stampin' Up Bookplate & Brads, Martha Stewart Punch, Kaiser Bling, Moonlight & Taffy Smooch, Kindy Glitz, Machine Stitching.
Colours: Water Coloured with Distress Inks, Zig Pen, Gold Gel Pen
Stamps: Lil Lolita - Ivy available from Tickled Pink Stamps,  Penny Black Puppy, Stampin' Up Sentiment
