the challenge for today is ......Christmas with a Twist !
You have to create a card or project for Christmas with no reds
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for this challenge, but I had pulled several papers that I could use for this challenges that didn't have the traditional
colors of red and green.
I played around with them for awhile,but couldn't get it to work for me and then I saw on my desk several challenges I had printed off I had wanted to try.
So I took the white challenge from SCS where you could only use white card stock and one color of ink.Everything seem to click into place for me
and I am quite pleased with out my card turned out.
I am loving the look of all white.
It also qualifies for the OCCC challenge this week.
For my white creation, I took a piece of white Cs and ran it thru my CB using A SU folder" Petals A Plenty", and then scored another piece of white CS, half inch apart with my Score it.I made the flower using the Nesties Poinsettia.
I stamped the sentiment with silver ink and then trimmed around
everything with a silver pen.Added some white pearls and a piece of white offray ribbon.Bow made using a bowmaker.
Accessories:Nesties poinsettia, nestie circles,Offray ribbon, MM pearls, silver pen, MS branch punch.

The challenge for this week ... to create a project that incorporates weaving
When I saw what the challenge was for this week, I was afraid it was gonna be time consuming and hard to do. I wasn't sure what to make, so when I am stuck , I always go to SCS and do a search and this is what I found.
I saw a card on there with this ribbon weaving and it lead me to this site for a tut on >>>>>>Ribbon Weaving
It was so easy and fast to do.I created a wreath with my weaving, added a bow and some rhinestones and .....Voila !
After having the wreath made, I searched thru my papers and found this sheet of PP from SandyLion.I've had this paper for some time and it matched my wreath perfect.The berries on the paper was a little dull, so I highlighted them a little with a Tombow marker.
I used a Fancy Tags for my sentiment.
I borrowed the tags from my friend( Thank You Kathy), since I done have them yet.
I have them on order and hopefully have them soon.
Accessories:Offray ribbon, $store rhinestones,Circle nesties,rectangle nesties.
The sponsor for this week is Sassy Studio Designs with four
images of winners choice.How cool is that.
We also have another sponsor....Emma with Stampin-up,
She is giving away... Stampin' Up Tall Tales 12" Designer Paper Pack.
So get your mojo going and let us see what you can do with weaving.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Julee has designed another awesome sketch.
I found this sheet of shimmer cardstock in my pile, I believe it maybe
Bazzill, and decided to work with it. I kept my card very simple to show case the star.I added a few pearls and some white ribbon to finish it off.
I seldom keep my cards so simple, but with the shimmer CS, I didn't want to cover it up. I am loving the look of it.
I embossed the star and sentiment with white EMP.
