2011 December I Am Roses Color Challenge

Hi everyone! It's December! Yikes, what happened to Jan-Nov, LOL. Are you ready for our first I Am Roses Color Challenge? It’s happening right now. Here’s your chance to win some of the fabulous flowers that our Design Team uses. Head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for more details and challenge rules.

Here is my project that I created for this month's challenge. I recently got my hands on some glassine bags (baker's bags/favor bags) and decided to jazz them up.

I love how they turned out. Does it even really matter what's inside? The packaging is so cute! I used various sizes of roses and a large gardenia. For a more organic look, I used some jute rope instead of ribbon.

The Christmas tree images were stamped on some kraft paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Some of the flowers were sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Royal Peacock Fire Glitz Spritz for that added shimmer.

So that is my project to help inspire you. I hope it worked =) Good luck on the challenge!
