Hello lovelies! Hope this first day of March finds you healthy and happy.
Today's forecast is below zero and more snow.
A good day to stay in and make Christmas cards for me :o).
Time for a new month of challenges and a new DT hostess at 52CCT.
Patricia will be our hostess this month and she has some great challenges for us.
The first week of each month is a sketch challenge - take a look:
You can use any shape you like (hexagons, circles, flowers, snowflakes, etc.).
Just make sure that we can still see the bones of the sketch -
oh and of course, that it's Christmas themed.
I must have changed my mind about 5 times on what I wanted to do with this sketch.
Eventually I decided on ornaments as my main shape (for the larger circles)
and a mix of circles and snowflakes for the smaller circles in the sketch.
Here's what I have to share with you today:
One of my ornaments was stamped and then embossed in silver.
All three were punched using my ornament punch.
I remembered that I had these silver rub ons from ages ago (probably 5 or 6 years)
that would coordinate with the punched shape.
I used to be addicted to rub ons. Still have quite a stash that I probably should use more :o).
Anyway... lots of different textures on this card. The dry embossed snowflake panel,
the glittery silver, the shiny silver, the matt silver and the pearls.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Merry Monday #97 (where I got the color inspiration for aqua, silver and white)
Divas by Design - Make it Sparkle
I sure hope that you will decide to join us this week at 52CCT for the March 2014 Sketch Challenge.
The rest of our wonderful DT members have made some beautiful Christmas cards to inspire you.
So fun to see our different interpretations of this sketch.
Please pop into their blogs and say "hi".
Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D
