Ribbons and Bows

 Hello again - this is my second post for today - this time to share my DT project for this week's challenge at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES

and I picked the theme this week:

RIBBONS AND BOWS

I tried something a little different for my card today - and I really quite like it :o)

 Here's what I used:

Various lengths of different ribbons - simply knotted in the centre to form a 'bow' and then 'placed' in the shape of a Christmas tree.
I added a few adhesive pearls and matt and layered this onto some Tim Holtz ' Vintage Shabby' Design Papers.
Wooden star embellishment inked withWorn Lipstick Distress Stain and glitzed up with Stamp and Bond then Glamour Dust.


Challenges I would like to enter:

Divas by Design - Monochromatic
C.R.A.F.T - Unusual Christmas
Pals Paper Arts - Pearls
Truly Scrumptious - Christmas with Pearls
City Crafter Challenge - Pink Christmas
Creative Card Crew - Monochromatic

My DT buddies have some gorgeous inspiration for you as well - it would be great if you could pop along to see them too.

Have a wonderful day.
