Hello Everyone

Are you getting in the spirit?? how's the shopping coming along??

Well today is December 1 and it's time for the December Challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ

Here is my inspiration card I submitted.

This ribbon is spectacular. Red with woven stripes and gold confetti-like pieces on it. I also added a little of a gold colored leaf ribbon.

That panel with the swirl on it, is paintable wallpaper. (I've had it for years) I used alcohol inks to color it and the coloring turned out fabulous.The panel was too pretty to cover up with anything else so I just added a die cut "Peace" on it to finish it off.

Paper/Card Stock: White CS, Red CS, Gold Paper,DP,  Paintable wallpaper
Ink: None
Dies Used:
Ribbons, Alcohol inks,Craft-Dee BowZ  tool

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow with another post and card for Craft-Dee BowZ. Hope to see you then
