Unstampabelles Challenge - #1

Good afternoon :)  Its a cold, wet and very windy day here in Victoria, Australia.  Great day for crafting.
While my daughter was having her nap I whipped up this Christmas Bon Bon for a challenge.

The challenge is a celebrations challenge and you couldn't use stamps (except a sentiment).  Christmas is my favourite celebration so I thought a Bon Bon was the right thing to do.  Something a little different to a card.

I cut out the bon bon on Bazzill Bling (shimmer cardstock) using a pattern and then rolled silver shimmer paper around the middle and a very deilicately cut lace pattern over the top.  Stamped a simple but elegant setiment and then finished it off with some ribbon. 

Simple and not traditional at all .... but I hope you like it :)

ooops this one is sideways ... but you get the idea :)
