WOJ challenge - Lavender & Lace

I'm rapidly losing the will to live today. I've had a couple of hours to spare and decided to catch up on my commenting. Has everyone been having the same problem, computer going so slow I kept falling asleep waiting for it to load the blog I was trying to comment on.

I gave up and decided to cook dinner - no potatoes - how did that happen? Went to the local shop - decided to buy a few things whilst I was there and came to pay with my card and the machine kept saying it didn't recognise my card. Tried the hole in the wall - the same response. Who needs potatoes anyway? First thing Monday am I shall have to get onto the bank and see if I can sort this problem out otherwise I will be starving to death.

Anyway, enough waffling - this card is one I have been working on for about three days - so my computer isn't the only thing that is slow this week.
The challenge at Whiff of Joy is lavender and lace. The papers are out of a magazine and I coloured the image with distress inks. The flower is a mixture of Petall (outer white) and the EK success punch finished with a pearlised white flower from stash. The sentiment is Inkadinkado and cut out with nesties.



Materials
BC - bazzill : DP - freebie from magazine : Image - WOJ Willow sitting with floral wreath : Ranger distress inks : Cuttlebug - round & label nestabilities : Leone Em branch punch : Rest from stash

Your card is beautiful! I love how you have her sitting on the ribbon! Very sweet. I know what you mean about slow --- my computer is slow and wacky today and my mojo is struggling to get back in the game! But when there are adorable images like these I can get through it.
