ABC Christmas Challenge entry

Hello everyone! This week at ABC Christmas challenge, they are wanting a KEEP IT SIMPLE card..... so I am entering this Riley card.  The CS is Kraft & red and the ribbon is from my stash (American Crafts, I think!)  The "snow" is 3D paint from Michaels & I coloured Riley with Copics.  The sentiment is from an old set, I can picture it but have NO idea which company!!!

Have a great day!

Our second sponsor is new to us, but amazing nonetheless! AND they will be sponsoring us SIX times over the next few months!!!! So if you don't win FOUR ROLLS OF RIBBON this week, there is always more chances!!!!!  Please welcome Fantastic Ribbons  as our newest sponsor!

Here is my card for this week:
I have used Annabelle's Meadow -  In the Meadow from Wild Rose Studio. Kim has an amazing selection of stamps from Wild Rose - which is my new favourite!!!!  Go check out her shop!!!!

I am totally, completely, utterly hopeless when it comes to Vintage...I can't do it, I TRY, I search blogs, I copy some and they NEVER seem to look vintagey!  A little distressing, some brown paper, a doiley or lace...does that constitute vintage??? I dunno, but I sure try & I hope you don't hate me for it! LOL

Have fun and good luck!!! I hope you'll join us this week!
