[The Ribbon Reel] Challenge #42 - Pastel Christmas

Hello everyone! I'm rounding out my guest designer spot with The Ribbon Reel with my second and last post for this November. It really has been fun creating projects for this group. Keilly and I had a little bit of a mail schedule mishap, so I wasn't able to showcase all of her trims in full glory last time. But this time you get to see some of the beautiful, lovely trim that I received. 

This week we're prepping for Christmas + The Colors (Baby Blue, Pink & Cream) + some Bling. 

I decided to ink up some of my older Brilliance ink pads for this one, and pull up some shimmery blue card stock.

Merry Christmas
Stamps: (Nutcracker Sweet) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Blue Shimmer; Perfect Match Card Stock - Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (15mm Sheer Ruffle Edge - Pink, Small Pom Pom Trim - Ivory) The Ribbon Reel;
(Brilliance - Pearlescent Orchid; Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Nestabilities - Picot Edge Circles) Spellbinders; (Stickles - Baby Blue) Ranger; (Pastel White Gel Pen) American Crafts

I inked up this fun little Christmas tree with some Brilliance pink ink (which in reality isn't as saturated magenta as on this picture). It has a nice shimmer sheen that matches the blue shimmer card stock. The bling to the tree is a bit of baby blue glitter accents. The trim is a combination of two trims from The Ribbon Reel, that layers the Small Pom Pom onto the Sheer Ruffle Edge ribbon.

Merry Christmas

The background is stamped in Versamark with some flourishes. I love the soft but elegant look that the background leaves. The trim is the perfect shade of aqua that I found in my stash. A bit of twine & button topped with a pearl and a beautiful pearl swirl, and the whole card is kinda done. Just a quick, elegant sentiment to tie the whole card together...

Merry Christmas

Make sure to stop by the rest of The Ribbon Reel's team...These girls have a lot of talent! And thank you again, Keilly, for letting me part of this fun experience!
