A Carousel of Friends

It's Friday and you know what that means, right? 
It's Friends with Flair Friday at Unity!  
Many talented ladies are hopping today and to find the entire list, go visit the Unity hop HERE. You may want to also take a look at the terrific deal for today!

Also, how about a great challenge to be inspired by...
Ribbon Carousel has a challenge to use 'fabric' on your creation, 
so I'm joining in there too!

I'm still playing with my new {ippity} Gingham Christmas Greetings stamp set that was released earlier this month and I love the plaid trees and sentiment, don't you?  I decorated a tin and I'm debating on what to put on the inside...maybe a small scrapbook, or a gift for someone...what do you think?

I dug through my stash and found a piece of green fabric that is cut out with the SU Bigz Top Note Die (I think I received it in a swap a long time ago).  I made the flower out of my Spellbinders Kaleidoscope die and really wanted to keep it simple.  Of course,I had to add some bling using my Imaginisce i-rock tool (love it!) and that's the bling on the tree. The bling on the flower is from SU.
   

The bottom of the tin is decorated too, and I think I may wrap some thin ribbon around the sides.  It's a pretty thin tin and I didn't have any thin ribbon that I like, so I'm on a search.

Don't forget to stop by Ribbon Carousel to join in on the fabric challenge, it ends on Monday:

So festive and creative. The tin itself is a magnificent gift and a great piece of art to hold tiny treasures.

a gift would be great in this decorated tin. but if it's painful to give such an adorable creation, a scrapbook would be a nice choice!
