Hello and happy weekend!!
Before I get to my card I have some exciting news to share.
I unexpectedly received an email from Denise from the
stamp something challenge blog
offering me a Design Team Spot on the Stamp Something team. How exciting!!! Of course I could not resist since Stamp Something was one of the first challenge blogs I played in when I first started blogging. I am starting my term next friday and I am super excited!!!
Now onto my card...this tuesday I received my Lili of the Valley stamps from the UK and of course I had to play in this week's LOTV challenge. The theme is "Non-traditional Christmas". I just love this stamp, it was the reason for my order and it's perfect for the challenge. (In case anyone is wondering, the order took exactly 14 days to get to me in IL from the UK- and the shipping charges were very reasonable).
Image has been stamped on couture 80lb card stock and colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. I sponged the edges using Stampin up's soft sky ink. I layered it on SU's basic gray card stock. Designer Paper is from Stampin up too.
The sketch is super simple, I really wanted the image to be the main focus on the card. Embellished with some layered snowflakes (Martha Stewart punch), some ribbon and of course I added lots of stickles glitter (frosted lace). To finish the card off I did some machine stitching. Sentiment is from Stampin Up.
This card was made for the following challenges:
- Lili of the Valley (theme: non-traditional christmas)
- Crafty Catz (theme: stitching)
- Raise the bar (theme: cooler weather)
- Charisma Cardz (theme: anything goes)
- Delightful Challenges (theme: make it sparkle)
Have a great day,
