Chic of the Week #162

Thank you to everyone who participated in the ribbon wreath challenge.  I know for many of you it was your first time trying one and I'm so glad you dove in and gave it a go :)  I  had a great time visiting all your creations and had a very tough time selecting a winner!!

After much debate, the Chic of the Week honor goes to Ros.  I just loved how she used stitched ribbon for her wreath, and the sparkly, silver Christmas tree she placed in the middle was a fabulous touch.  Great papers and lovely noel block letters give her card a fabulous winter feel.  In addition, she used a scarp of ribbon to make ribbon "pine cone" accent on a second card.

I can't go without noting the honorable mentions.  Alissa's red wreath on a wood grain background was fabulous - reminded me of a wreath on a barn door, and Miesje did a fabulous job incorporating her wreath into the I Spy sketch.

Ros, please e-mail me at mritzen at shaw dot ca so I can forward you your Chic of the Week badge.
