Challenge #15 - Something New Plus Ribbon theme

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Please scroll down to the next post for the winners of the last challenge.

Challenge #15 is a 'Something New Plus Ribbon' Theme.  Did you get any new crafty stuff this holiday? Whether it was a gift or something you treated yourself to, we would love to see you use your "something new"!  It can be a new tool, new papers, ribbons, etc. Please mention on your post what new item you used and don't forget to use ribbon! ;)
Create a layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it - and let us know what your 'something new' is!!! As long as it follows the theme and uses ribbon, it qualifies.

We are thrilled to have Whimsy Stamps as our sponsor for this challenge.

Whimsy Stamps is a family owned business and online store located in the United States. We carry a line of whimsical and fun rubber stamps made from deeply etched red rubber and mounted on EZ mount foam. We also have a digital stamp collection with new releases on the 1st of each month. We've recently added an online gallery for our DT and registered users where you can find lots of samples using our stamps. We also have an inspirations blog with daily postings and product info and our featured stamper Saturdays!

Whimsy Stamps is happy to offer one random challenge participant a $15 gift certificate to their website.  What an awesome prize!! 

Here is a little inspiration from our design team for challenge #15 to get you started.  All images are from Whimsy Stamps and all ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
