Christmas Carols

Happy Friday!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week, it could be easy OR hard, depends on your cardmaking style. : )  Anyway, the challenge is: use ribbon as your only embellishment.  The sponsor this week is Broken Box Stock and I got to use this cute image called "Caroling Toodles".  Here's my card:

I went with a rather untraditional color scheme again this week.  It was inspired by the piece of green paper on the card base.  It was the only piece big enough to cover a card base. : ) At least in the stack of paper I was working with.  So, I went with it.  And I even managed to use a bit of ribbon from my bits and pieces stash: the green on the right side of the main panel.  I've been slacking off on using up that stash, so I was happy to be able to work something in this time.  Now it's time to hop on over to the CSAYL blog, check out the rest of the DT projects and then play along.

Twisted Tuesdays #74--I need your Paperwork (use at least 3 dps and the twist: writing or doodling--I doodled the black line around my image and added some little "snowflakes" to the image)
Wags 'n' Whiskers #127--lots of layers
Christmas @ Sweet Stamping--glitter, glitter everywhere (the green paper has glitter around the blue circles, I used glitter pen on different parts of my image and the small snowflake in the bottom corner is covered with glitter)
The Squirrel & The Fox #68--use die cuts or punches
Scrap Creations--anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #192--lots of sparkle
Party Time Tuesdays #169--anything goes
Christmas Challenges with Sketches #120--sketch (they ask for the sketch not to be posted)

Stamps: Broken Box Stock "Caroling Toodles"; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders standard circles, large; Sweet 'n' Sassy snowflake die
