First Christmas

Hello lovelies,
So did you read on the last challenge that we will be going to bi-weekly challenges from now on??
Well I just thought I would mention it in case you hadn't noticed.  So now you have two weeks to get your wonderful ribbon creations entered.
Well it is the turn of the Buttons Team to host the challenge this week.
And this week the theme is
It doesn't have to be Baby's first christmas, it can be your first Christmas card, first christmas as a couple, first christmas holiday so long as it is a Christmas First it will fit our bill. And remember we always like to see a bit of ribbon.
So long as your creation fulfils the challenge you can make whatever you like, cards, layouts, altered items, take your pick and have fun.
So here is my offering for this week:
So my first Christmas card this year, first time I have used this stamp and the first time I have used the fabulous EXCLUSIVE Christmas ribbon.
The stamp is one of a set of four images and one blank stamp from Clarity Stamp.
Stamped in Versamark detailed black ink onto Theuva Card from Clarity Stamp.
I coloured just the breast of the bird red (as in Robins) with my Spectrum Noir pencils and added some gold glamour dust to the bauble cap.  I  clear embossed the black parts of the stamp to make them stand out.
The ribbon is one of the new EXCLUSIVE ribbons at Crafty Ribbons and it finished my card off a treat.
I am looking forward to seeing your lovely creations.
