The-Challenge 
 

It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge!  Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of 
holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project.  We all have plenty of it 
laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty
little things into an amazing piece of art!

EDITED TO ADD WINNERS:

Lee-Anne-graphic
Lee Anne used this fun little gift tag from her aunt as the centerpiece of her project.  I love how she was able to add just a few finishing details to complement the tag and create a whole new project!  And the way she added the Banner Border to hold the sentiment to break up the "squareness" of the card was just the perfect touch!

Jean-graphic
Jean Martin was able to reuse some beautiful white ribbon she received on a gift from a dear friend to create this stunning birthday card.  The soft color scheme of the overall project allows the ribbon to remain bold, even though it is a neutral white.  And adored the details she added to the center of the butterflies!

Amy-graphic
Amy Liz Schultz recycled some green ribbon from a special gift that her husband gave her.  The way she looped the thin ribbon at the top ad allowed the tails to hang loose below was such a wonderful way to let a small-scaled embellishment really take center stage and create some drama!

Congratulations to all three of the randomly selected winners!  Be sure to contact customer service with your selected free stamp set as well as your shipping information!  Thank you to everyone who played along!  All of us at Papertrey Ink hope that you had a wonderful Christmas that was filled with family, friends and many blessings!  Happy New Year to all!
