The Shabby Tearoom and Paper Sweeties {Gingham Country Christmas}

It is time for another fun challenge at the Shabby Tearoom and I am the challenge hostess this week! Yippee!!!

I found this amazing photo on Pinterest and I loved all the Creamy Vanilla and the punches of red gingham and the beautiful blue china. I have these plates in my country kitchen, in fact my kitchen table looks just like this too!

I was inspired by all the cream in the photo...and I decided to ink up my favourite Paper Sweeties set called "Snow Friends". I love this set SO much! I stamped my snowman on white paper and then cut him out and popped him up on my embossed cream background. I wanted to use this pretty gingham ribbon that I bought MANY moons ago but I have not had the courage to use it yet. I always shy away from big bows but I decided to go for it with this card! What do you think?

 {Supplies Used}
Stamps: Snow Friends (Paper Sweeties), Memory Box Sentiment
Inks: Black, Midnight Muse
Papers: Ivory Naturals, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Midnight Muse, DSP
Extras: Gingham Ribbon, Stickles, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Embossing Folder
