I'm finally back in blogworld after taking a few months break to concentrate on The Ribbon Reel shop.
We have moved from fortnightly challenges to monthly ones from this month over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog, and what a fabulous challenge I have come back to. Tammy is our host this month and has chosen this beautiful shabby Christmas photo to inspire us.
and ask that you create a card / project using the inspiration photo using BLUE, PINK & CREAM/WHITE PLUS RIBBON.
I love this colour combination for Christmas, I find the bold red and greens too much and love the subtle tones of the blue and pink.
I used several die cuts to create the central focus of the card and threaded seam binding around the edges. I added a simple WMS sentiment next to a glittery chipboard star.
One of the most fantastic things about running a ribbon shop is that I get to play with all of the off cuts and couldn't resist this beautiful pink silk ribbon from May Arts to create a pretty bow.
I have used kraft cardstock inking the edges with PTI Snow White Ink, layering some pretty pink snowflake paper as the background. Papers from various MME sets make up the diecut circles with a little ivory silky crush and pink silk ribbon to running horizontally.
We have two fabulous prizes up for grabs. Our first sponsor is the lovely 'Paper Sweeties' who are sponsoring us with a $20 Gift Certificate to their store.
Plus we have a second prize from The Ribbon Reel
I can't wait to see the different variations entered into this months challenge. So remember there is a whole month to take part, whether you are designing a card or an exciting project, we'd love to see what you have been creating.
