The new challenge at the Crafter's Cafe is to use ribbon and lace, or, if you wish, create something with a Steampunk theme. I chose this cute image from Sheepski Designs called Smile. It seems to me that a somewhat feminine design suits this cutie very well!
This image is a digi in black and white. I enhanced the outline using a moderately wet aqua pen along the ink lines. The eyes and nose were done with black Twinkling H2O. The Happy Birthday is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and I used a Spellbinder Labels die to cut the background for the image. The strips are all ribbon from my collection. Like many of you, I could make a card with this format every day for years and have more than enough ribbon! The horizontal strip is dark gold lace over black cs.
