There was two starting points to this card: the 1920's style challenge and the "ugly paper" challenge I'm doing with Laura. We challenged each other to find our ugliest piece of paper and use it on a project. This lovely floral paper was a paper I received with an order and it is definitely not something I would ever have chosen myself. (Not disrespect to anyone who love that paper, it just doesn't fit my stamping style.)
Anyway, I found out that it you cover it enough with other embellishments until you can barely see it anymore, it doesn't look half bad! LOL!
I took out my beloved Sassy & Seasonal gal - I so love that set! - and I also grabbed an old SAB set to create the sentiment. For some reason, I always think of the song "Santa Baby" when I see that Christmas gal, so I decided to stamp that on the tag. The Santa was stamped with the Calendar Alphabet set, and the "baby" comes from an old SAB set that I actually have both in French and English. It's probably the first time this particular stamp sees ink! See, if you keep stuff long enough, it ends up being used at some point!
To keep with the 1920's theme, I added beads and I wanted some fringes, but I wasn't sure how to go about it, until I thought about ribbon! I really like the look, and it was perfect for the sketch SC174 since it has a flap that opens up on the inside of the card.
So, what do you think?
(BTW, the rest of that beautiful paper will be used to make a matching envelope, so that I am done with it and can make room in my paper stash.)
