Shabby Christmas at the Ribbon Reel

As soon as I sat down at my desk yesterday, I spied this piece of faux patina background that I made weeks ago, and thought it would be perfect for the current ribbon reel challenge.  I am so excited with how it turned out - exactly how I wanted it to!


Supplies: Inkadinkado stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic Markers; Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac; Tattered Angels glimmer mists - blue skies, tattered rose; Tsukineko Shimmer spray; Picket Fence distress stickles; Ranger white enamel; May Arts ribbon; classic small circle Nesties; white detail EP; unknown embossing folder; Versamark


The snow drifts were created by tearing the edges from a same-sized die cut circle, edged with ink & painted with Stickles. The mistletoe berries are dotted with white enamel. The faux patina background is so incredibly shimmery - you get just the barest idea of how shimmery in the photo above! 

Here's the inspiration photo, with the additional prompt to use pink, blue, white/cream, and ribbon:

xoxo,
Jessi

This card is amazing Jessi! Love that background! (You need to make a tutorial of how you did it. hint hint)and that image is too cute! BTW, you should enter this in Simon Says Stamp Wed challenge also - make you own background. I do believe this qualifies!
