Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Sunday after Christmas! It's over again and I have to admit I am glad about it. It was just exhausting, I really hope you all enjoyed it and that you had a wonderful time!
But now it is time for another:


Here is this month's challenge:

Holiday Leftovers

It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge! Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of
holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project. We all have plenty of it
laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty
little things into an amazing piece of art!


Luckily I got a gift wrapped with some gorgeous organza ribbon and was able to create this:


That rose is made from this ribbon:

Vanessa
