TRR Challenge #17 'Shabby Holiday Wonder'

Well, we are on our last challenge before the Christmas holidays over at The Ribbon Reel and it is Debbie's turn to host the challenge for this fortnight. Debbie has chosen this beautiful shabby photo for inspiration....

...and ask that you create a card /project inspired by the photo and use

Here's my card...

Sometimes, things don't always go how you had them planned but I went with the flow and this is my card. I decided to add white paint to the paper edges to keep it shabby.

The snowflake sentiment was made with the 'Joy, Peace, Love' mini clear stamp and inked with grey ink. I added some glossy accents and highlighted with image with a little glamour dust.

I pleated some white silky crush ribbon, layered with the white snowflake cut out ribbon, 3mm silver velvet and some lush avalanche white pom pom trim! I may have gone a little overboard with all the ribbons on this card but love how it has turned out.

Don't forget to check out the Design Team's projects for some great Christmas inspiration.
