The Twelve Days of Christmas (Cards) - Day 11
Hello, me again! I can't decide whether to be proud of myself for keeping up with this challenge, ready to be finished, or sad that I'm almost done - I think it's a little bit of all of those!
Today's card is my second make and take for tomorrow's workshop. I really love how this one turned out. It came about because I wanted to use the Sassy Sparkles wheel, and I wasn't getting anywhere, so I searched the SCS gallery and ended up CASEing this card. I chose bordering blue for my lightest color, which I wheeled in soft suede, then layered onto real red and soft suede. I left enough room on the top and bottom of the suede layer to add some piercing. The ornaments are real red (I swear they are!) and on the center one I stamped a second time in bordering blue and punched out the snowflake to pop up the center. It seemed like the blue needed to be grounded by appearing somewhere else and this was the perfect solution. I used silver elastic cord to "hang" the ornaments and a sentiment from Christmas Greetings - I nearly missed this set in the catalog and I'm so glad I didn't!
OK, I'm off to work on some more workshop projects. Here's the blog candy reminder for today: leave a comment and you might win! Blah blah blah.... ;) (If you haven't been following my challenge all along then just go back and look at the previous posts - you'll want to comment there, too!)
