RR#43 Nordic Noel

Wow!  Today is my first post for the Ribbon Reel Design Team!!  I'm really honored and thrilled to be working with this group of ladies!  Of course getting my hands on some fabulous ribbons and embellishments never hurt either!  The Ribbon Reel has everything you need to turn something ordinary into something extra ordinary!!

The inspiration photo this week was selected by Helen Berry!  She always makes something fabulous - decked out in gorgeous ribbons and trims - can't wait to see what she did with this one!   I'd love it if you would join us and play along this week.  The challenge is a Nordic Noel - a Scandinavian inspired photo -  you are to use kraft red and white, and include buttons, ribbon and twine.  You can use any brand of stamps and dies you like - just be sure to follow the guidelines!  Challenges are bi monthly so you have some extra time to play!  You can get all the details here.
I stamped some pine boughs hung with stockings and ornaments and made my focal point an embossed tree layered on some gorgeous ribbons.  I'm slowly building my PTI collection and I couldn't resist this set with so many add ons.  I love the nordic ribbon with the sweet reindeer don't you? 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

Great job for your first on the Ribbon Reed DT Jeanne! I love the little scene you created...the stockings look so cute hanging from the pine bough garland. I love the nordic reindeer ribbon...and that cute little bauble at the top of the tree!

Oh wow, Jeanne first of all thank you so much for your sweet comments - made me smile :))
I adore your card - those stockings hanging from the swag, the beautiful embossed Christmas tree and pretty star! I have only a little of the reindeer ribbon left and totally hoarding it. I could not be happier that you are on the Ribbon Reel DT with us - your designs never ever fail to inspire. Hugs x x x
