Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

Merry Christmas (a day late)!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Today is the Papertrey Ink blog hop that I totally forgot about until I went to the forums tonight.  I decided at the last minute to play along.


"It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge! Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project. We all have plenty of it laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty little things into an amazing piece of art!"

This one stumped me for a while.  I sadly didn't make any name tags this year but then I remembered that I DID make embellishments for the gum ball favor sticks for my son's class.  I had several of those tags left over and they were sitting on my desk and so I decided to incorporate one of those into a non-holiday card.


This was so fun!! I love, love, love using Hawaiian Shores or Aqua with red!  This is one of my go-to color schemes!  And, that ribbon!  That was originally black and white (you can find it in the PTI store here, it is the black & white stripes ribbon) and I used my copics to color it to match the card.  I love this!! I will do this again for sure!

 
That little music flower embellishment is also a left-over from a previous project and I loved that the music paper was the perfect match for the music impression plate!  What a fun combination!  And, this was also a great way to use a large button...especially a "clear" large button!
