Happy New Year at The Ribbon Reel TRR #18

TRR#18

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having an absolutely wonderful Christmas time!!
Well, it's time already for another fabulous challenge over at The Ribbon Reel Blog and Fran is hosting this time and provided a wonderful inspiration picture which can be found here.

The theme this fortnight is to create something with a 'New Years' theme using the colours white cream grey silver or black

I combined Waltzingmouse Stamps with patterned papers to create a monochromatic look and finished with charcoal seam binding, silky crush, black pleated ribbon, button twine, may arts lace and black & white stitched grosgrain ribbon all from The Ribbon Reel. I created the white flower by twisting some beautiful white seam binding around to make a loosely rolled rose flower shape and then finishing with a large pearl in the centre.

I do hope you enjoyed what you've seen and wish you a very Happy New Year!!

Don't forget to check out what my fellow Design Team members have made for your inspiration here.
