Lili of the Valley Challenge -week 4

Well it's that time of the week again! It's Lili of the Valley Challenge time! This week's challenge is entitled "321". We want you to use 3 papers, 2 ribbons and 1 brad or button in your challenge. The challenge is still open to all crafty products (ie it doesn't have to be LOTV) so do join in! The prize this week is to be a guest designer which is such a great prize.

Above is my design. I must admit I'm not totally happy with it as I appear to have lost my crafting mojo! DISASTER if you're on 2 design teams! After I'd made this, I decided just to colour in some images this week as the creative juices weren't flowing but even they didn't turn out how I wanted!! Dohhhhh! I'm hoping it comes back soon as I've got to start working on the design team cards for next week soon!

Anyway, enough of my moaning. For this card I used the cute Miki and Kimi diecuts from LOTV which I coloured with watercolour pencils and highlighted with Crystal Stickles. I then mounted them on my nesties, the white scalloped circle I then ran through my Big Shot with the Swiss dots embossing folder. The 3 background papers are from DCWV Christmas stack and I mounted them on red card. I then added 2 ribbons mounted on top of each other and added a cute button at the knot of the bow. The sentiment is a LOTV Christmas greeting to which I then added two gems.

Crafty stash used: Die cut (LOTV); Paper- Christmas stack (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Watercolour pencils; Crystal Stickles; Nesties, Swiss dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug); Gems (Lakeland); Sentiment (LOTV), Ribbons (recycled & Jo'Anns); Button (free)

ps I've just seen something on Artymiss by Making Memories called a tag curler tool and you can get an assortment of different tags with sentiments on to go with it. It looks like the tool attaches the tags to the ribbon. I thought it looked interesting but am not really sure what it is/how it works. Has anyone out there got one?
