First Christmas

Morning all

Today is the next challenge over at 

The challenge this week is

First Christmas
 - can be baby's first Christmas, or first Christmas card, first tag etc

and it is the Bows Team inspiring you to enter

I just had to use one of those new Wild Rose Studio images and some of the beautiful vintage ribbon

so here is my inspiration but do hop over and see the rest of the eye candy on the challenge blog.

I used one of my shaped blank cards to create this one.

The base layer is cream as is the contrast and I have used some of those gorgeous Lily of the Valley papers.  I used the WRS frame and added those usual embellies for this soft 
Baby's first Christmas Card
see below for items used.

Here are those closeups
The image coloured in copics, with some stickles and sakuro clear star

The ribbon which is gorgeous
