Lazy, rainy Saturday

Will it ever stop raining?? Well, it has set in again. I can't wait for our wet season, NOT!
I really shouldn't complain. It's the middle of winter here and I am walking around in shorts and t-shirt. Also, my new rose bush that was planted a few weeks ago already has three buds on it! Whoop!!

I was having a look around and saw 3, yes 3, challenges that I wanted to enter. The best thing was that I love all of them and couldn't wait to start.

I have entered these awesome challenges -

The colours I need to use were White/Black/Blue. I have used Whisper White cardstock with a panel of Basic Black and Ocean blue grosgrain ribbon for the outer panels. I have stamped the Merry Christmas stamp from my new Delightful Decorations Stamp set to create a background (first time to be inked) with Whisper White ink.
I have then layered the white and black cardstock, inking the edges of the first layer with Marina Mist. I have embossed the last panel and then added another stamp from my new set and used my new co-ordinating punch. I have used Dazzling Diamonds glitter to highlight the bauble. A little white and silver ribbon to finish off.

Here is my card -

Here is the sketch I used from Simply Stampin'

Thanks for looking xx
I will now go and check my feet for webbing ;)
