Dutch Dare card challenge #216

Hello everyone!  How is your week going so far?  Mine is a blur.... I was in a meeting all day yesterday from 8h am to 6h20PM... with only about 1h break throughout the entire day... and today I'm in meeting again... I long for the weekend and my craft time... but it won't take place this weekend because it's my oldest son's b-day today and we are celebrating it this weekend!  He is turning 16!!!!  WOW where does the time go?!?

So here we are ready for another challenge over at Dutch dare.  This time it's about lace and ribbon.  And our awesome sponsor is none other than:

For this card I used the awesome Nevaeh.  I decided to go with soft feminine colors since it was ribbon and lace.

I used paper from Daydream by First edition ( I really love the sparkle in the paper!).  I used my reverse wonky rectangle from Spellbinder.  The sentiment was put on a paper cut with Elegant die 170012 from Designer Dies.  I added a ribbon and a button from my stash.  The lace was part of the pack of stuff coming from a fellow crafter's studio!  I think I must have bought pretty much everything that Beth had when she changed crafting orientation lol

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  The fabulous FRENCH sentiment is from Create with TLC.  She doesn't have a whole lot of French but I use them to the MAX ;)
I made this card following this awesome sketch:
