The stripes are trimmed at 1/8" and 1/16" wide and spaced to form a block pattern behind the glimmery snowflake. It does add interest and texture, which I like in that tiny space. Lots of sparkle!
The other side is a scrap of Cherry Cobbler embossed with Snowburst folder. I layered 'wish' from Pennant Parade with a scrap of silver Glimmer Paper. The I stamped the little girl silhouette from Welcome Christmas and punched her out by cutting the image into a strip and feeding it into the Modern Label punch, one side at a time to the size I like.
Added a Bauble and a Trinket Key, with a scrap of Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.
I wore it today & already got compliments :) I heard my first Christmas song on the radio today too, it was Last Christmas by Wham or George Michael. LOL. Not my favorite but I was still excited!! So it begins!
Here's the info on the challenge, maybe you'd like to give it a go?
Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
