Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18

Hello all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. It's time for another Raspberry Suite Color Challenge, and this one is another stunner... Here is what I came up with...
Decided to give the Moxie Fab World: Not Your Regular Ruffles Challenge another go. I cut the Christmas tree image (from Tree Trimming Trio) into sections, ruffled and adhered ribbon, then assembled the tree back together and embellished with buttons. Not sure what I think of it, but decided to share it anyways.

Stamped a cream strip with my new woodgrain stamp in brown. Attached a cream apron lace border, wrapped with cream satin ribbon and stamped the sentiment (from Signature Christmas).

Hoping to go to the pumpkin patch after church today. Hope you have a blessed day! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Love the ruffles!! What a great idea :) The woodgrain gives it an outdoor feel too. Yes, I've been loving my retro background...especially the one I used for Dawn's card. I've also tracked down the 2 fiskar punches I don't have!! Thank goodness for the internet :)
