I don't know whether I'm coming or going this week ...... still trying to catch up with stuff from last weekend ..... and it's all getting ready to start again ....... and it's nearly the end of the month!!! I could do with an extra few hours each day I think .... maybe I give up sleep for a while!!!!
I have managed to squeeze in a couple of blog challenges this week ...... I've done a 2 for 1! I know ...... that doesn't happen very often.
It's another one for the Christmas box ........
I'm entering this into the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge .... where the theme this week is to ......
I stamped my sentiment in the centre(ish) of a piece of white card and added a few sprinkles of Fran-tage embossing Enamel (Shabby White and Chunky White) to add a bit more interest to the background.
I then glued an old bookpage on to a piece of white card and die cut my festive blooms using the Spellbinders Poinsettia die ..... there's my newsprint used!
I inked around the edges of the flowers with a little Distress ink, to give a bit more dimension and then layered up each one adding in a few festive red layers too. A bit of green foliage, and a few gems for the centres and jobs done.
Now for challenge number 2 ....... this week's Less is More.
It's Recipe week and we have to .......
Use Some Metal
As you can see my piece of metal is a small jingle bell in the centre of one of my poinsettia's. A nice CAS design, lots of white space. I love it when things come together!
Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
Cheerio until next time
