Princess Card Challenge #4!!!

    Hello!  Sorry to be MIA!  We did some traveling this weekend and it has thrown off my crafting and posting schedule a bit!  I do have two posts today though so be sure to check back later for post number #2! This past Sunday was my blogging groups Sunday challenge.  I am in charge of hosting these and the challenge I presented to my super group of blogging buddies was to use a picture for inspiration and to make a card from it.  This was the inspiration picture:

This is my little ole bag!  Notice the wrinkles?!  It has seen lots of use!  It is very special to me.  My sweet kiddos gave it to me for my birthday this year and I have toted it all over the place full of things!  (Usually my chocolate stash!) LOL  I just love this bag!!

Since my whole schedule has been thrown off I am a little late with posting my card, but better late than never...right?!  Here is my take on our Sunday challenge:

I used Cherry Cobbler instead of  pink for the ribbon and a snowflake rather than the bow! I used white craft ink for my polk-ie dots!  The center of the snowflake has a silver glimmer paper dot!  I had a corner left from a previous project and didn't want it to go to waste!  I am trying to use every millimeter of that gorgeous shimmer-y goodness!  My lighting is off in the picture, but the shade of lime green matches the bag almost to a tee!  This is a different kind of color combo, but I think I like it! :o)

Side view.


   Close up of the snowflake.  It is punched from Whisper White and adds enough pop to separate the black from green with a little zing!

It is always fun to draw inspiration from the things around you!  I challenge you to take a look around...choose something pretty and let it be your inspiration!

I will be back later today with another little post!  Have a wonderful day! See you soonest!

So pretty and such a great idea! I love how you changed the colors just enough to make it work for Christmas! Loved your saving each little bit of the glimmer paper! I have all of my little pieces in a sandwich baggie so they don't get lost! Good to know I'm not the only glimmer frugal crafter!!
