RRR Challenge #54 - PURPLE

We are closing in on the end of summer at lightening speed! What that means is not too early to start making your Christmas cards! That's not is also time once again for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge.

The challenge for this week is to make a project using PURPLE, plus ribbon. I have been having fun with the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting Collection, which has some purple in it, does the NEW Nutcracker Sweet Collection!

Seriously! Look at that purple!

The August Ribbon Club is filled with purple ribbons. I used the Satin Swiss Dots Light Orchid with Grape Dots ribbon (what a mouthful).

I glittered up a flower, pine cone, leaf, and a snowflake button. Nothing says Christmas decor like glitter!

I added a chevron pattern die cut under the ribbon to mimic lace.

  1. The cluster of pine cone, flower and snowflake is positively poetic!
