Snowy Hugs at RRR Challenge and a touch of SWEET STUFF!!
Hello everyone and a very happy Tuesday to each of you! I hope you have begun a marvelous week and are accomplishing many of the things you would like to accomplish! And welcome to November!!
Challenge #11 at Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings is to make "something" using the colors BLUE, SILVER, and WHITE and that "something" can be a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hairbow, you name it!!! As long as it follows the theme and has ribbon on it, you're in. The deadline is November 13 and all the rules can be found on the Challenge Posting...so won't you please join us and show us your lovely creations! For this challenge we are being sponsored by Scor-Pal which offers the most magnificent cardmaking tape in the universe, Scor-Tape. Scor-Pal is providing a wonderful prize for some lucky participant!
For my Challenge Card I used Bazzill for the base and double matting and the DP is from the Winter Wonderful Collection by Best Creations. The two major background panels are machine stitched. The darling Snowy Hug Tilda and Snowie were stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding Liquid Applique to the caps and jacket for trim and Twinklets for all the snow. This little cutie will be available VERY soon over at Magnolia-licious. For the vertical ribbon treatment I used 7/8" White Organza and White Glitter Ric Rac from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. The bow was tied with the Bow-Easy Tool which Bonnie also has available. To finish the card, I made floral arrangements using mulberry roses and cherry blossoms resting on silver snowflakes and some lovely leaves made with an L-Em punch which was a gift from a very special friend. Thank you so very much, Christina! I just LOVE it!! I then added silver beads to carry through with this challenge's theme.
I hope you like my little creation and will put your BLUE, SILVER, WHITE ideas to work and join in with us for this challenge!
