Ribbon Share of the Week

Don’t forget my Ribbon Share of the week. It’s the gorgeous 5/8” Grosgrain….I just need two more participants and I can order the Ribbon. You get 3 yards of all thirteen colors for only $26.00 and that includes shipping. Just contact me at the top of my blog where it says contact me. When the share if full I will email you a Paypal Invoice and we’ll be good to go!!

Ribbon Shares and mystery border 002

….now for my card….

This to me is an ultra contemporary Christmas Card…..I tried to add some ribbon or cording but it said “No” just leave me clean and simple…don't ruin my elegance. So after 30 minutes of struggling as to what I could add…..I left it alone. I think it’s pretty…what do you think?

 Vintage Ornaments 2 003 

I love Christmas and Ornaments…..just ask my friend Joanne from Atlanta. Joanne makes hand blown ornaments and gifts me with one every year….I just love them and her for always thinking of me. She does the most beautiful snowflakes….so if ever you want any hand blown ornaments I know that gal for you.

Back to my card…I used the Decor’ Stencils from Stampin’ Up! called Vintage Ornaments 2 #118141 if you are interested.

I also used two of our new colors…Concord Crush and Pear Pizzaz and sponged them on over the stencil doing the greeen one first, then the concord one to cover up and overlap…I think they are so pretty together. I jazzed it up a bit with our new Rhinestones and called it a day. Simple, Pretty and Quick. Oh I almost forgot…I used the snowflakes from Snow Swirled with Craft White and a bit of Shimmer Paint in the White Frost.

That’s all for today….I hope you will come back often and leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

This card is gorgeous. When I saw the stencils last year I wanted to get them but didn't. I think that will change this year. I love your sample. Thanks for sharing.
