Some news and new challenge at Crafty ribbons

Hey, hey! :) Before I show you what I made for the new challenge at Crafty ribbons blog that started today I want to share some news with you. 

I don't know if you've seen this, but I made it to the Whimsy DT. Yes, that's right, little old me made it. :D I'm sooooooo excited!!! I LOVE their stamps and dies so this is really a dream come true for me. :D Yaaahooo!!!! :D :D

Ok, now to the challenge ... As I've said before a new challenge started today at Crafty ribbons blog. Our theme is "animals at Christmas + ribbon". I know most of you have already started working on your Christmas cards so I hope many of you will come play with us. 

On my card I used the adorable image from LOTV which I coloured with distress inks.


Green isn't my favourite colour so I don't use it often on my creations. Therefore I have quite some (leftover) green papers in my stash. I decided to use some of them on my card. Along with them I also used some leftover pieces of Prima papers. I inked all the papers with TH distress inks. I made poinsettias with LLLC dies. I wanted them to sparkle so I covered them with glitter glue. :) In the middle of each poinsettia I placed a pearl with golden sequin under it. Between different layers I glued some doilies and stars which I cut with my Xyron dies and then embossed with swiss dots embossing folder. The beautiful ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and you can find it here. It's not a typical Christmas ribbon, but I think this just shows you how versatile those ribbons that Ali carries in her store are. :)


I'm participating in a Christmas card swap at Kit and clowder FB group and this is the card I'm sending to my swap partner. I hope she will like it! :)

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
LOTV ideas to inspire: Merry Christmas
Penny Black and more: Anything goes
Dream valley: Anything goes
Love to create: Make it for Christmas
The crafter's cafe: Anything goes
Divas by design: Let it snow

  20. Čestitke za DT! Zelena barva se prav lepo poda tej voščilnici, odtisek pa eleganci doda še navihanost - všečkam na polno! :)

  21. Oj Maja...najprej čestitke za nov ustvarjalni tim ;))) Bravo!
    Tokratna voščilnica je zelo simpatična, ker si uporabila krasno barvno kombinacijo: zeleno in natur. V ozadju so mi všeč različne postavitve papirjev. Čudovito pobarvano zimsko idilo pa resnično zelo lepo dopolnijo božične zvezde.
