SCH Week 40 and RRR Challenge

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!

It is the first of the month and a Saturday.  So I have two different challenges to share with you.  I thought of doing different posts, but then decided it would be easier to just do the one.  I also have another challenge on Sunday.  

It is week 40 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and  we would like to see you create a Vintage or Shabby Chic Creation with some DISTRESSING!!  I just love Distressing!!  
I decided to participate in the first challenge of the month at Really Reasonable Ribbon, starting today too.  We would like to see you use White on White with one additional color and ribbon.

Luckily for me, I had an idea that was going to work for both challenges!!  Here it is below.
Pin It!
I created my own template in Inkscape.  Traced it onto some cardboard from an old box in the basement, cut it out, added some white paint, and distressed the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  I even removed some of the first layer of cardboard to expose the corrugated part.  I just LOVE how it turned out! 
At the top I have a darling little beaded stick pin that I threw together and vintage button.
 You can see where I did some distressing on the "Merry Christmas" and added a little glitter as well.
Here is an up close of the flower/button cluster with ribbons and trims.   Reminds me of a yummy frosted Christmas cookie :0)  I am making some of these to give a touch of "Christmas" to my everyday household plants that I love :0)
I am sure that you are all in "Christmas Card and Gifts Mode" just like I am.  Hopefully you will be able to fit something that you need to create, into these challenges.  You don't have to do both challenges together.  Feel free to do them separately!!  Who knows how many things you can get done and "checked off your list!"
Have fun creating!!
