The Ribbon Reel #18!


Hello sweet friends and welcome to this extra special blog post ... I'm happy to share my project for The Ribbon Reel #18 challenge with you all on Christmas Day!!

This week our challenge is called 'Happy New Year' and we're asking you to make a card or project in this theme using black with cream/white and silver/gray.  We all took inspiration from this lovely photo for our projects this week:

 And here is my 'Happy New Year' themed card ...

The pretty sentiment is stamped using the Christmas Cheer set from Inspired by Stamping.  

I used a snipett of 10mm White May Arts Stitched Grosgrain from The Ribbon Reel Shop next to the pretty crystal trinket pins on the left side of the card.  A silver paper doilie anchors the base of the design and on top of that I added two layers of gorgeous, lush ribbons ... 25mm Creme Satin layered with Black Satin Pleated ribbon - stunning!!

The organza and rhinestone bloom is from my local craft shop.  I made a white candy cane from chenille stems and then layered that on top of a bow made from 3mm Silver May Arts Velvet!  A couple of tiny silver jingle bells, some Black Licorice baker's twine and a white felt snowflake with rhinestones for bling complete this festive New Year's card!!

Please be sure to pop on over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to check out the GORGEOUS inspiration from the teamies this week ... and then I hope you'll have a chance to play along with this fun and festive challenge!

Hugs to all!
