Merry Christmas!

CCEE1248 Tilda wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Vicki Gould brings us her final challenge for the month.

This week Vicki has challenged us to Lace your ribbon (i.e. through a bracket, a piece of lattice work, or cardstock.

For  my card this week I used Magnolia’s Tilda with Dog which is a freebie I received with the latest Magnolia magazine … what fun! 

For the lacing the ribbon part of the challenge I used my Martha Steward Linked Trim Border Punch, laced my ribbon through this piece and added a big bow to the bottom. I then attached this beside the Magnolia panel.

  4. Aaaaah! What a cute image! Great coloring.

  5. Beautiful card! The punch was perfect for ribbon lacing.

  6. Beautifully done! The image is precious!

  7. Sweet Tilda with her precious pup is adorable. Did she get that puppy for Christmas? The punch you have for your ribbon threading is terrific; I love the design of it. Pretty dp, too. Another beautiful creation by Y-O-U!

  8. I think these colors and this image are just fab, Frances! WOW!

  9. Frances,
    The image is so very cute and, as always, colored wonderfully! Very pretty card!

  10. That border punch couldn't be more perfect for the ribbon and for an old-fashioned feel so in keeping with your image. I see the ribbon seems to have brought out Christmas spirit for a lot of us! I don't mind the cards that I just need to write a couple of lines in, but I have several I need to write catch-up letters for, and they're the time-consuming ones that I dread!

  11. absolutely adorable...just love your paper weaving

  12. What a cute card and I like how you laced the ribbon through the border punch.
