Hello!  Can you believe how quickly January is passing by?  It’s more than half over already!

Over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we’ve been having fun with Mynnette‘s challenges this month.  This week she gives us a recipe challenge: a monochromatic card, with clean and simple styling, with ribbon and a rhinestone.  The design team has cooked up a wide variety of cards with this recipe – be sure to go check them out!

Although I tried several different layout ideas in my head, I kept coming back to this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  For this card, I’ve turned the sketch on its side, and I’ve moved the embellishment to the end of the ribbon/banner.  The light blue cardstock for the tilted panel has a subtle linen texture that’s super hard to catch in photographs.  I stamped the ornament on a scrap piece of smooth cardstock in the same shade of light blue.  It has a couple cardstock shims between it and the tilted panel to allow the end of the ribbon to lie smoothly underneath it.

The sentiment stamp is from a set of holiday sentiments designed by the girls of Lizzie Anne Designs for Gourmet Rubber Stamps.  Although I’ve never met Tricia and Meridith in person, we’ve been online friends for several years.  When my family was visiting my inlaws in Florida after Christmas, I talked my husband into helping me find one of the scrapbooking/stamping stores not too far from where his family lives.  Finding Tricia’s and Meridith’s stamps there was a sweet surprise (and a few other LAD sets besides this one managed to come home with me, too)!

So anyway, now it’s your turn to see what you can make with this recipe!  Share your work with us at the 52{C}CT website by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, January 24.  We’d love to see what you create!  Thanks for stopping by today.
