Greetings blogland friends! Happy Tuesday afternoon! One more day of work under the ole belt, three more to go! As usual, I am getting my Jingle Belles card in on the next to last day of the challenge...seems to be my habit this year! For this challenge, Stef and Lauren have asked that we be inspired by their new blog banner, in any way, shape or form that may take! I went the "easy" way, and chose to be inspired by the colors...seems to me my card from the previous challenge coulda fit this bill nicely too! But, I like this one much better!
The dp is from the Winter Wonderland pack by...(I have forgotten who!), adhered to kraft cs. The purty swirly is one of many different colored ones I found in the dollar bins at Michael's. I puchased the blossom SB specifically for the purpose of making a poinsettia, and I finally got to it! I cut the different sizes out, spritzed them with water, and then crumpled the heck out of 'em! Before they dried, I ran a darker red inkpad over them for some depth. After I assembled the flower, I thought that it needed more definition between layers, so I added some Candycane Stickles to the points. Oh, and the edge of the dp was run thru a Martha Stewart punch on one side.
I guess that's about all for this one! Make sure you all have a look over at the Jingle Belles blog and see what everyone else has created! Take care!
