The Ribbon Reel #16!

 Hello sweeties and welcome to The Ribbon Reel #16!  This next challenge will be fun .. ANYTHING GOES!  Because of the fast-approaching holidays, I decided to make a holiday card ... you can't have too many of these sweet handmade creations around this time of year to send along to family and friends!!

I adhered a strip of 38mm Pink Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon from The Ribbon Reel Shop to the base of the card after stamping all the background elements.  On top of that, I adhered a strip of Aqua Blue Velvet - yummy!  I added some delicious 12 mm Guipure Lace Drops Trim around the pink embossed wreath and then finished the wreath off with some Pink Button Twine to add a festive bow and nosegay for my shabby little decoration! 

All the sentiments and images were stamped using the Christmas Mail clear art stamp from Crafty Secrets!

Be sure to hop on over to The Ribbon Reel Blog to check out the inspiration from the other teamies!!  I hope you'll have time over the next two weeks to play along with our 'Anything Goes' challenge!

Gorgeous card, Debbie! I love the soft pink and blue palette you used. That center piece is stunning with the buds, too. Have a wonderful holiday season! Thanks for joining our challenge at Stamptacular! Marcy K.

Truly a gorgeous wreath you've created here with the pearls, the crocheted piece and the colors are glorious!! Both of your entries are actually stunning!
Love your creativity. :)

However, our challenge at Top Tip Tuesday this week is More Than One Fold and not tags. Do these cards have folds that I cannot see in the picture? Would love for your cards to remain in the drawing for a prize if they qualify for the fold challenge.

Wow I just love christmas card in non traditional colours. The way you've used pink and blue together, especially the ribbon, the pearls and the flowers and that diecut. It looks spectacular.
