Just for fun

Now here's an oddity.  Me joining in a challenge for fun rather than it being a design team project.  I follow loads of challenge blogs and I sometimes even make a card to fit.  I don't always get chance to do the blog post bit though.  To be fair Sparkles Christmas Challenge is a monthly challenge so you do get plenty of time.  I just forget.  Anyway, it popped up on my Bloglovin feed this morning so I decided to dive straight in.  They want to see ribbon, lace or twine.  I have to admit to having a bit of a ribbon problem.  The problem being that I've so much it gets knotted up in the box I keep it in.  Anyway, rather than fight the big knot monster, I found some ancient sticky ribbon on a sheet.  

I embossed a piece of white card with some snowflakes and used the ribbon and some gold border peel offs to created stripes in the other corner.  I matted that onto some green card and stuck a green panel in the middle.  I'd already coloured this sweet image from The Paper Shelter and it had been sitting in a box waiting to be used.  Anyway, now I've finished it I'm off to tidy my ribbon box - she lied!

Thanks for reading.
