The Ribbon Reel #43

Hi!

*I am honored to note that this was featured as one of the Spotlight Artist cards at City Crafter Challenge on 12/11/12. Thank you ladies*

Hello Sweeties and I am excited to be back this evening with my first Design Team post for The Ribbon Reel. I was absolutely tickled pink when Keilly asked me to join her team.

This week you are asked to use the photo inspiration you will find below and add Kraft, White, Red, Ribbon, Button and Twine somewhere on your project. 

I started off by stamping my snowflakes with a sand ink on my card base pulling inspiration from the hanging snowflakes above the fireplace. I die-cut a labels 10 from Spellbinders and used a coordinating frame from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Using Kraft ink, I stamped the Medium Curly Christmas Tree from DeNami Designs in the center of the frame and a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps in red ink.  A white pearl was added to each end of the frame. The label was then layered on a doily cut from Lunch Bag Kraft Paper.

A length of white seam binding was wrapped around the card front and tied in a fussy bow adding a button and some twine for a decorative touch. 

Here is the beautiful inspiration photo to get those creative juices flowing.

Be sure to head over to The Ribbon Reel to be inspired by the other design team girls.  The challenge runs bi-weekly so you have two weeks to participate and show us your beautiful creations. The more times you enter the more chances you have at winning some

Further inspiration was found and I would also like to join in at:
