JIC challenge and Simply B

Welcome to another challenge week with Team A at 
Just Inspirational Challenges.

Our sponsor this week is Simply B, who are
offering a $10 voucher to the store.  :)
Check out the store HERE

Here are this weeks inspirational photos, yes there
are TWO, to pick from. 

I chose to do the winter scene using 
"Rio Trimming The Tree" which was generously
provided to me by our sponsor.

I am on a kick lately of using different shapes for cards.
I inked a paper doily and used it as part of the 
background and punched out some snowflakes
using my Martha Stewart punch. Of course I added
some pearls and glitter and even managed to use
some ribbon. :O 

So, for a chance to win this awesome prize, just 
create a project using one of the photos as inspiration OR
use both and make two. :)  Don't forget to go to
Just Inspirational Challenges and link up your entry.
And don't forget to stop by the other team A members
blogs and leave them some love.
