We want to thank each and everyone of the sponsors for their generosity. It has been greatly appreciated.

My project for today is another sunburst design, this one is my contribution to a card swap.

On this card I used My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas Festive & Frost and Bazzil Pomegranate and Capers embossed with Sizzix Christmas embossing folders to create the triangles.  I used a cranberry cardstock for the base, The Paper Company Uptown Gold for the mat and Recollections Ivory Shimmer for the sentiment piece.  The sentiment is from TPC Christmas Glamour, I used embossing ink and Stampin Up Olive embossing powder.  The flowers and brad are from Memory Makers Fa La La collection.  The ribbon is from Recollections. 

Here is a link to the video tutorial I used:

A couple of different versions with same ribbons and pieces.

Here's a couple with a different ribbon:

This is the first one where I wanted to use more blues but with the papers I had the greens and reds worked better.
