January Recipe challenge - 52CCT, ABC Christmas Challenge - "A", CCAYR - January Challenge



Hello - made it to the weekend (seemed like a long stressful week to me) and now it's time for another January challenge at 52CCT.  This week we have a recipe challenge for you.  Before I show you the details of the challenge please take a look at the card I made using the recipe:

And here's the recipe I used.

Isn't this little guy just the cutest? I think this might be my very last piece of that darker purple paper.  I actually had the embossed piece sitting on my desk from another scrapped project.  That was my inspiration for the color to use in the monochromatic scheme.  I think this penguin looks darling in purple. Don't you think so too? 

I really struggled with where to put my ribbon and still keep it CAS.  Finally decided to tuck a couple pieces in at the edge.  I'm almost embarrassed to say how long I fussed around with that one aspect.  CAS doesn't always mean quick in my case - LOL.  But I do like how it turned out - finally :o).  

I'm also entering my card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - 'A" is for Anything Christmas'
Christmas Cards All Year Round - January Challenge, Anything Goes Christmas

So glad that you came by to visit me today.  I hope that you will go visit the rest of our team at 52CCT and see what they have made as well.  We have a couple new DT members starting this week.  How lucky for us :o)  Hope to see your wonderful Christmas card(s) in the gallery this week. Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D

  9. That dark purple card is so rich, beautifully embossed. Love the fat penguin in your sentiment, he's very cute. CAS is rarely quick I think, but it is my favourite style and you nailed it
