The first challenge I ever participated in I believe was one of the
fun challenges at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog.
They took the summer off and are back raring to go with a new
challenge. They're starting us off with a classic color combo
of gold, black and white - love it!
This card came about from scraps on my desk. I was cleaning up -
looking for a missing stamp set from yesterday - when I
saw the poinsettias and the cut out circle piece laying together.
I decided to color just one of the poinsettias using a gold pencil
crayon from Prismacolor and then use black sparkle embossing
powder from Ranger for the centers. I used a Spectrum Noir
Crystal Clear sparkle pen to add some shine to the gold - you can
see it better in the picture below. I used the Softly Falling embossing
folder to create the scene in the 'window'.
I made this card before I saw what the design team has posted to
inspire us but now I'm heading over there to check them all out. Why
don't you join me.
and thanks so much for visiting!
