Advent Calendar with Advent Ribbon

Hello lovelies,
Well it is the turn of the Buttons Team to host the challenge this week.
And this week the theme is
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 I used a Greyboard Advent Calendar christmas tree from That Craft Place on FB.
I painted it with Gesso first and then used Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk paint in pale green to paint all the little draws, and the cone at the top.
The body of the tree is painted in Burgundy Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paint.
Then I sprayed everything with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle in Gold.
Next I cut up the exclusive Christmas Advent Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and glued them to each individual little draw.
I added some holly leaves, cones and berries on the top piece and then added a star at the top.
The star was made by cutting 4 stars and gluing them so that it was 3D.
I am not happy with the star so will probably take that off and redo it but I wanted to show you how easy it was to use the gorgeous Advent Ribbon.

I am looking forward to seeing your lovely creations.
