Tiddly Inks Challenge #31 - Sing...Sing A Song!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!  Today we're FA LA LA LA LAing our way through the month of December!!  This week's challenge is to make a creation using one of your very favorite holiday songs!!!  The first one the came to my mind was Walking In A Winter Wonderland.

I chose to use the following images:

I wanted to keep my card in MOSTLY monochromatic white tones.  And that's HARD!!!  LOL!  I kept red/pink as my only color added on the princesses bow and as a background to make the harmony music bar pop.

I started by coloring and glittering up my princess and set her aside to dry.  Same with the banner and the harmony bar.  I pulled a couple of pieces of quiet DP from my new 360 sheet stack from K&CO (love it!) and did an entire border of snowflakes on my sewing machine. 

I then used my Cricut to cut the snowflake out of Crate Paper DP - the back side of whatever particular DP it was. 

I used my darling friend Joanne's ruffly ribbon tutorial found on my sidebar to create the beautiful, shimmery ribbon on the bottom of my card. 

I the layers and the border with my glue stick (works SO well and is so much cheaper than tape runners!!! - I found this out when I ran out and was in a pinch)  I then added the snowflake and princess with 3-D foam and the ruffly ribbon is held on with Scotch tape in the inside of the back cover while my Beacon Adhesive dries underneath the ruffles and then I will remove the tape and trim the edges.
I truly hope you've enjoyed and been inspired!!!  Please leave LOTS of love for my fellow Design Team gals as they've done a GORGEOUS job as always!!

Crafty Hugs!
