Ok....here is the card I did for a challenge I have with a few friends. Here is the deal--a few months ago, my friend Tosh emailed me to see if I wanted to be part of a little group. The idea is that we would have challenges we would do on mondays and one week a month a member of the group would email out a package to the others with a special assignment.
This week the challenge was to use Certainly Celery, Pale Plum and Eggplant to make a card--the catch--to make it a winter or Christmas themed card. Had I known this challenge was coming-I would have said no right off the bat!!!
Sorry...I hate it when that happens.
Clean up on aisle 9!
Back to the card. Hmmm...I used the colors specified but didn't have any pale plum on hand (what a pity!) and I wasn't about to go out and purchase a pack for one card...so i improvised with that color.
I created a tag card. It is tag shaped but it is actually a card. It measures 3 by 5.5. The image is from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
I used my cuttlebug snow folder to create the background white layers. I used a snowflake punch (Martha Stewart) to bring the Eggplant color into the design a bit more---I mean, it is normal to see Eggplant snow, right?
Anyway. I threaded my celery ribbon (the green saved me on this one!) through a peice of hardware and then match the silver to the brads going through the snowflakes and the eyelet on top. Finally, I added to icicle stickles to the hat and scarf of the snowman.
Ok..there it is....gotta go clean up this mess!
Tosh...I love ya...and it is not just because you are turning 40! (gasp!) on tuesday!
