Christmas event at Crafty ribbons - day 1

Good morning! The most beautiful (in my opinion) month of the year just started. Woohoo!! :D I absolutely love Christmas - all the lights, the smell of cinnamon and oranges, yummy food, snow ... It all adds to the fact that this time of the year is so magical. I also love doing Christmas shopping and preparing gifts for my family and friends. It's a season of giving after all, right? ;)

And to spread the joy of Christmas around, we at Crafty ribbons decided to have a special Christmas event. Each day you will be treated with lots of amazing creations by the design team and we also have sponsors for each day which means you have the chance to win a lot of amazing prizes! For all the details hop to the Crafty ribbons inspiration blog.

On the first day of the event our sponsor is Lily of the valley. They are offering the lucky winner a 10 GBP voucher to spend in their store. 

I wish I could enter the candy draw too - I love their images. lol 

I made a card using their Milly winter window image.

Isn't this image cute? I bought it a couple of years ago and it's still one of my favourites. :) I coloured the image with distress inks and I added some glitter glue on the white part of Milly's cap and dress. I cut the image out with Spellbinders' Labelsix dies. The star paper I used for the background is from Folia and the rest of the papers are from my stash. The beautiful ribbon is from Crafty ribbons - you can find it here. Stars were cut out with Nellie Snellen dies. I added some glitter glue on them, raised them on foam pads and then added them to the card. The dark brown border was made with my Cart us die and the border under the image was made with my border punch. Doily and blue plastic dots are from my stash.

Hop to the Crafty ribbons inspiration blog to see all the beautiful creations from my teamies and to enter your name in the prize draw. Good luck! :)
