Noel...Three Challenges in One

Noel....Three Challenges in One plus One more:)
Hello my Scrappy Friends! I wanted to share a page I did for three different challenges. 
1. Whimsical Designs - Sketch challenge #44.
2. Hiding In My Craft Room (HIMCR)- #36 color challenge the colors are Monochromatic Green.
3. Really Reasonable Ribbon- Challenge #43 is Monochromatic Green & to use some kind of ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project.
Paper Issues- Go Green or Go Home
Here's my page-

I went with the Christmas theme because this was the first picture I came across that I could use green! My little grandson has on a green shirt and with it being Christmas Eve it was perfect.
I took scraps of ribbon and paper for the side strips, some old Christmas stickers that I put on card board and layered them to look like a Christmas tree then popped it off the page with foam tape, added a wooden star button for the topper. The title was bought just yesterday at a garage sale! Whoop Whoop I think it cost me a whole 10 cents. I did some distressing using the Tim Holtz distresser and sewed on the title and the crochet ribbon. 

Here's the sketch-

Thanks for stopping by:)
