Colour Challenge at 52CCT

I think the heat is getting to me a little as I was not feeling too good yesterday. Too ill to craft even!!! So my post for the 52 {Christmas} Card Challenge is late - sorry!
The challenge this week is to use these fabulous colours

Now we do have some very strict rules when it comes to our colour challenges so please do check them out before you link up - of course we would never delete a card from our challenge but if you would like to be considered for an Honorable Mention (and who wouldn't?) you must follow the rules.

Ok - enough talk - here is my card

This is my favourite style of card - I love squares and repeating patterns so much! My ribbon is seam binding and I applied my double sided tape to the card first and then ruffled my ribbon as I went along - love this effect too.

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Pines & Poinsettias
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Seam Binding Ribbon

  1. Gorgeous ribbon Jacqueline. I think this card looks like a lovely wrapped Christmas package. Very elegant.

  2. LOVE the beautiful pine cone image--it's so elegant and festive! Your ribbon treatment is amazing, too! :) HUGS and have a great week! :)

  3. The pine cones and holly fit the color scheme perfectly! I really like the ruffled ribbon, too. I hope you are feeling better by now!

  4. Very festive & fab card Jacqueline! The Pines & Poinsettias set is perfect for the repeating pattern layout and the ruffled ribbon is a very elegant touch! Ruth x
