Christmas Spirit Challenge 17
Good evening! Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge is an Inspiration piece this month. I am so excited to have so many Christmas cards already done this year. This is the coolest picture of a dining room, no way mine looks like this. But how cool would that be to have a room like this. I have two creations for this challenge. The first one here is using Warm Winter Wishes stamp set. I like this snowman so much, he just makes me smile. Added some of the new red and white checkered ribbon Flourishes got in from CHA. Obviously the colors were my inspiration in this card.
Now for my second creation I had some help from my DH. He is challenging me for one month to use no white in my cards and creations. GASP!!! Say what... I am not to use any white, that is insane. However I am in a rut and he thought this was a great solution and would force me to try other things. Ummm... okay I think. .
This is what I came up, I took the fan shape of the ornaments into account, the wood framing around the mirror and decorations. The tag is using a sentiment from A Gift for you. The paper on both the tag and card are from the new My Minds Eye paper pack called Lost and Found Christmas. The sentiment on the card is from Dove and Holly. Yes that is one white paper, however I did sponge it a bit, does that count? I used my new Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia for both my creations. I have so many ideas with this new Spellbinders and I can't wait to show you what I have been working onThis is so very very different from my normal work. I do like how it turned out. So maybe he is onto something with his idea. We will have to see. Thanks for stopping in tonight.
