Hi there blog friends,
I'm back to share 2 cards I created over the weekend...Have you heard? Loll and Bonnie have a brand new challenge...CAS Christmas! No more excuses for me to feel overwhelmed in December, frantically creating 20 or 30 more Christmas cards :)
The theme for March is 'Holly'. I have a serious collection of holly stamps and dies, so I'll be entering again next week :). I rarely use patterned papers on my cards, but I have a pack of PTI gold foil papers and thought the stripes would work well here. I stamped the holly and berries and although it's not noticeable on screen, I added glossy accents to the berries for shine. A gold embossed sentiment and a few gold sequins, and that was it...a CAS Christmas card!
My 2nd card is for this week's Sketch Challenge at MFT:
I was eager to ink up this cute stamp...I colored her with Copic markers, created the background with stencils, then mounted the frame on stone gray cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving such sweet comments...I read them all, and appreciate them very much! Have a great week!
