Jumping In & PPA72

I guess you'd call this jumping in with both feet! I recently signed up to be a Stampin' Up demonstrator and I thought I'd let you have a peek into my world by sharing my creations here. I hope you'll enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy creating them. 

Here we go!

This is the card I created for this weeks Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA72). When I first saw the inspiration photo I couldn't wait to begin. The designers over at PPA outdid themselves with this one!

Here is what I came up with:

I used a Whisper White card base and I layered on top a piece of Very Vanilla that I ran through my Bigshot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  I finished the snowflakes with basic pearls & basic rhinestones. Along the side is ribbon I "gathered" with Sticky Strip. I ran the sticky strip down the left side and I slowly adhered my ribbon while gathering it. Be sure to make sure your folds are more "wonky" then straight so they appear more natural. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and then again with VersaMark and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it some sparkle.
