Little Red Riding Hood {PP72}

Hiya friends...happy Sunday! Welcome to another week with The Paper Players.  This week LeAnne has a fabulous holiday color challenge for us:
These colors gave me a holiday vibe but you could go in many directions with them depending on which color is most prominent in your design.  I paired them with Rita's fantastic sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
 I had not used the Greeting Card Kids set in awhile and I just love the little girl image:
A blender pen with Riding Hood Red, River Rock and Always Artichoke classic inks made quick work of coloring the image.  I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds to her coat, hat and the snowy ground.
You know I have just about every color of the wide striped grosgrain ribbon...even some retired colors like the Riding Hood Red piece I used here.
I tied it off with some linen thread and two mini jingle bells--they make the sweetest little sound when the card is opened!
One other little detail is the stamped border from Creative Elements that I used to frame the center panel. 
And there you have it!  I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at The Paper Players.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design team for some fabulous inspiration:

Gorgeous, Nance! I love Greeting Card Kids, but never thought about it being so elegant and sophisticated! I love all the elements; you really got the perfect amount of each of those colors!

Oh that extra sparkle on the coat would make any girl happy :) And the teeny bells tied around the ribbon are sweet! This card is just all around adorable!

I love the special touches such as the Creative Elements framing. So sweet and gorgeous!

You always add the most wonderful details, like the tiny bells, the glittered accents, and the elegant scroll borders. Beautiful job with the colors and a fantastic design, as well!

LeAnne said...

Super cute! This sketch is great to use with this little sweetie, and I love the bells! Perfect Christmas card for a special someone!

Julie Marshall said...

Simply adorable...she is cute without all the glitter. Add that and she's just about perfect. Love the ribbon treatment with the bells. Wonderful card!

Beautiful card, Nance! The details are gorgeous down to the twine, bells and dazzle.

Margaret said...

I've never been a big fan of always artichoke,but WOW! This has such a vintage feel and is so pretty! The bells and the glittery accents really added so much to this card! Love it!

Margaret Moody said...

This is wonderful, Nance! I love the vintage look and all the great little details (love the sparkle and the jingle bells)! Great job with the color challenge! Thanks for sharing your amazing talent!

Jen said...

Such a sweet card, Nance. You've added just the right amount of Dazzling Diamonds to make everything shimmer and shine! And your description of those little bells makes me sorry that I don't have them. A little jingle does the heart good!

Anne Marie said...

OK, Nance...I don't know what is sweeter..your card or that sweet little gal who is perfectly accessorized for the holiday? The Dazzling Diamonds are the perfect touch and I love how you used the stamp to frame the main panel...on BOTH the inside and the outside. Those bitty bells just add to the charm. Everything about this card makes me smile. Full of ho-ho-holiday cheer! Big hugs sent your way! :)

Ann Schach said...

Oh how adorable, Nance! She has such a sweet vintage innocence to her! I LOVE it! And those jingle bells are the perfect touch!

Nance this is adorable. The little girl with sled is my favorite of the set... She looks so pretty in her little coat. My favorite part is the jingle bells on the ribbon. Jingle bells always get me in the 'spirit' of the holidays beginning..Hugs.

Jen Timko said...

Inside and out, this card has every detail done perfectly! I love the little jingle bells tied on! Lovely coloring! So glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Carrie Gaskin said...

This is so wonderful - so many little perfectly placed details. Can't wait to play with this challenge!

Joan said...

A fabulous card, Nance - so many wonderful little details. I love the bells tied on with the thread and the bit of added glitter makes everything wintery. I also love the snowflakes falling among the words of the greeting.

Tara Bilbao said...

Nance, This is so beautiful inside and out! I love your choice of papers and that ribbon with the bells is just fabulous! The dazzling details on the stamped image is just icing on the perfectly delicious cake. You always amaze me with your creations!

Noelle said...

Nance, I love this lovely card! That little girl image is one of my favorite SU! sets! Who doesn't love mini jingle bells? And I used the same ribbon as you did, I love that wide striped ribbon! :) Thanks for popping by my blog!
