Pretty Little Ribbon Shop January Challenge - Flowers & Ribbons

Please scroll down for my Flourishes - January Beautiful World Tour Challenge card

Hello dear blogging friends. Hope you are all well.
It's the first Monday in January and time for another challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  This month it  was my turn to host the challenge, and I have chosen flowers and ribbons as the theme.
For my first card I used Spellbinders - 'Fancy Lattice' die as my background. I then stamped and die cut several layers using Justrite stamps and the matching Spellbinder - Labels Twenty dies.
For my second card I used Mariposa backing paper and dies from Spellbinders - French Frills.
I embellished with rhinestones from my stash.  My flowers and seam binding are from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

Do stop by the blog and see the beautiful creations from my team mates. It would be great if you could join in with us this month.  As always, you will be in with a chance of winning something pretty.
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges...


Thank you for stopping by
Sasha

Both cards are lovely with such different styles. Love the monotones of the first and the brightness of the second. The carnations on the first are just so real looking. The Eiffel tower on the second is spectacular with flowers, ribbons and corners.

Two gorgeous cards, Sasha! Love the white elegance on the first card with lovely label, sentiment, and flowers! The second card is a gorgeous blue and sweet Eiffel tower, decorative corners, and lovely flowers! Great job on both cards! Take care, hugs!

Stella said...

There is a classic elegance in the combo of black and white and that stunning embossed background and that amazing label caught my eye. All the details are subtle but above that..chic. Love this. I do love your Paris card too but this beauty in black and white is my fave of this post.

Thanks for your advice about the lighttent. Haven't decided yet. Still thinking if it is worth the investment for a few cards each week. XXX
