Red black and cream ........... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This is my DT card for the Ribbon Girl Red/Black/Cream colour challenge. I made a vintage style 4 inch mini card and matching box using papers from Authentique, cream cotton lace, cream and black check ribbon and 7mm red satin ribbon.  The tag is made from kraft card using a Papertrey die and sentiment stamp.  The button is a flower shaped sparkly acrylic button tied with ivory button twine

I machine stitched the pieces of paper to a kraft background and added Zva clear crystal swirl - there is a lot going on in this card set, but I thoroughly enjoyed creating it!

Another view of the box to which I added a small red polka dot button and a kraft tag stamped with a Papertrey sentiment.

I hope you will have time to pop  over to the Ribbon Girl blog and be inspired by the fabulous projects made by the mega talented Ribbon Girls!  We're keeping the challenge open until Saturday 7th January and there are some fab prizes to win!

Red Satin Ribbon, Black/Cream Check Ribbon, Flower Button, Button Twine, Zva Clear Crystal Flourish and Cream Cotton Lace all from the Ribbon Girl

See you soon, Mary G x
