Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog HopYou should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to the spectacular Ginny's Blog next!

At the end of the hop, comment on the RRR Blog post, answering the question listed, for a chance to win the December Ribbon Club Assortment shown below. (The Design Team appreciates your comments, too!)

The December Ribbon Club Assortment is called Winter Blues Assortment. So, the only winter blue I see here in southern California is the ocean and the sky...if it drops down to below 68 degrees here, that is winter, baby! {it is a hard life, I know} But, I do love a blue, white, and silver combination! 

I am currently obsessed with making multiples of things. In October I made a 6" x 6" home decor panel, which you can see HERE. At the time I thought it would be fun to have a bunch of these chipboard panels to decorate various shelves and tables of my house. As you all know, I am great at thinking up ideas, and not so great at long-term projects! But this time, I did manage to make a second panel!
I used Authentique Frosted papers, because they are so very frosty! I love the glues and lavenders, plus...silver! So sparkly! 

I wrapped a 6" x 6" piece of thick chipboard with the snowflake paper. I then wrapped the Royal Blue Diamond Satin and the Porcelain Satin with Silver Edge ribbons around as if wrapping a package. I then used more paper to cover the back of the panel to hide the messy bits.

I matted the image, cut from the same paper, with ivory and blue cardstock. I then wrapped a 5 x 4" piece of chipboard with some plaid paper and attached the image to the chipboard. I popped up a little sentiment with some foam and then added a few sparkly enamel dots. So very cute!!

I cut a doily from ivory paper to tuck under the image. I rubbed the doily shape with some glittery watermark ink.
I created bows with the Royal Blue Diamond Satin ribbonPorcelain Satin with Silver Edge ribbon, and White Crochet Lace. I glued the bows to the panel and then added the large, glitter star. I have no idea where this came from, but suspect that a friend gave it to me. The glitter dove is from my hoard, and I cannot remember where it came from, but I only have a few left...time to source more!

I also added glitter spiral, and a few flowers and leaves. I dabbed the flowers with a bit of glitter glue to make them sparkle. The silver leaf is from a floral pick I found at the craft store.
Thanks for looking! I hope you like my second panel! It was fun and easy to make, but is so pretty for decorating a table or shelf!

Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog to see what she has for you!
