One Christmas Card Down....



Wow...I'm pretty far behind! I played Sparkle's Christmas challenge, and had so many by this time last year! Guess I need to get working on them, huh? Anyhow, had to play some challenges this morning. I saw a wonderful sketch on The Sweet Stop. Isn't it a lovely sketch? So easy to do and so pretty too! I made this card larger, 5.5x5.5. Don't do square cards often. But this gave plenty of room for embellies, and show off that lovely Basic Grey paper. Than at Anyone For Anya it was Christmas in Aug. So, that worked out perfectly because I had been hording those flowers, and that darling winter stamp set from CC Designs last year, and hadn't made a card with them yet. So sad! Anyhow, I did the dazzling diamond technique for the snowflake, and the Cranberry Crisp that she's sitting on.


Than I paper pieced her clothes. I get she's totally in some crazy patterns. When my friend was visiting a few weekends back, she commented on how boys are wearing crazy plaid shorts, and striped shirts all the time. So, she was thinking they matched! LOL! I totally agree, cuz Trey's dressing like that, and I swear, like all the boy shorts in stores are plaid! All I'm saying loud is totally in! She's fashionable! LOL!


Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies: Nesties, CC Design stamps, Basic Grey, SU cardstock, and ink, stickles,
