Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #61

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge for today! The challenge is to make a project that is white on white, plus one color (or a colored image), plus ribbon.

Like many of you, I feel that white on white is huge challenge! But, at this time of year, it seems that there is so much that can be done with white! Here is what I came up with.

I started out with the idea of embossing white paper with the dots folder and using that for my background. But, I quickly decided that I "needed" some printed paper. I was lucky to find some white paper with a subtle background of cream! I love to shop my stash!

I ended up adding just a strip of the embossed paper, which I inked with creamy brown chalk ink. I found a scrap of white glitter paper in my stash and cut two ornaments from it. Then I cut some and inked some die cuts. I think this is one great white challenge! (If I do say so myself!)

I have a huge stash of white ribbons and trims, but I did get some NEW items from RRR, so used those. I used: 3/8 inch white satin with a grosgrain edge, 3/8 inch white velvet, and Allison white crochet lace.

I also used some of the CANDi in Choc-a-Mocha. Such a yummy color! CANDi is basically paper brads! You attach them with a dimensional dot and...that's it! They come in more colors than you can count! My favorites are Choc-a-Mocha, Seville Row, and Hardware.
