Bowtiful Ribbon!

Hello!  Happy last Saturday of November!  Less than a month until Christmas now!  I hope your doing better than me as I am sick!  Currently I have no voice and for me this is the WORST THING EVER!  I am very talkative and I miss being able to talk!  Expect this to be a very wordy post!  All in all I haven't felt absolutely horrible and I have been getting better fast (although how long does it take for one's voice to come back already!) I didn't have any fevers and haven't been confined to my bed or anything.  The worst of it is losing my voice.  I miss talking!  



I am here with another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  This week our challenge is Bowtiful Ribbon!  And our sponsor is Charleston Scrapbook Company!  Such a wonderful prize they have provided for our winner, a bow maker!

I love this week's challenge as I love ribbon on my cards and I think most of us do!  I went with a Christmas card as I am currently making a lot of them these days!

I started with a cream card which I distressed the edges with vintage photo (TH), than I stamped the magical background (HA) on top in the vintage photo.  I stamped the trees with the vintage photo also and colored with green inks by memento.  The brown panel was embossed with a snowflake folder by Cuttlebug, here is a close up:


After I embossed it I inked it with my versmark pad to add definition to the raised embossing since the paper is so dark.  It really helps bring attention to it!  I tied a red ribbon in a bow and finished it with a silver snowflake!  

I hope that you will join us this week! You have until Friday December 3, 2010 11:59pst to play!  For more info please click here, and don't forget to check out and leave love for my fellow DT!  Thank you for visiting today and your always kind comments!
