Twine or Ribbon Challenge

This week the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use Twine or Ribbon on your project.  I saw a digital layout on Pinterest that gave me this idea.  I prefer actual paper and texture on my layouts.  Here is the page I was inspired by:
Here is a LINK to this project.  As you can see, my style is a bit different but the sketch is the same.

I started with some Christmas paper from my stash and gold cardstock.  I designed my layout on my Gypsy.  On the first Layer, I put a triangle from George on my mat.  I unlinked chain below the width and height and stretched my triangle to fit the page.  I sized it 5.00w x 11.50h.  I found the phrase Oh Christmas Tree from Winter Frolic and cut out both layers at 2.53 inches.  I intended on putting 2012 on my layout until I remembered that Christmas 2012 hasn't happened yet.....  I found the numbers from Designer Calendar.

On the next Layer, I put some jingle bells on the mat sized to 1.12 inches.  I used stars and hearts from George sized to 1.35 inches.  I cut out a sign post from Christmas at 2.88 inches, but did not use it.

I added our annual Christmas Tree Hunt photo of my boys.  One great sketch ~ two different looks.  Be sure to join us at Frosted Designs for our Twine or Ribbon Challenge this week!!
