I’m starting with a big THANK YOU tonight … to Kimberley for choosing this card as the winner at CASology yesterday … I’m sooo honoured and thrilled … thank you so much! Thank you also to everyone for all your encouraging words afterwards … I truly appreciate it! 🙂
My card is for a truckload of challenges. It started off with One Layer Wednesday, where uber talented Ardyth is the host this week and has asked for holiday cards without red or green. Then I found a new-ish challenge for fans of Waltzingmouse Stamps (separate from Claire’s blog and with her blessing) called Waltzingmouse Fanatics, where there’s a ‘Storm Colours’ theme. If you’re a WMS fan, and you haven’t been over there yet, do pop in for a visit … and maybe play along … there’s still a little time left. The new CASology cue card was released today (Triangle) … and as my mega talented and sweet friend Geri from Manitoba Stamper is the GD, I couldn’t possibly miss it (and so soon too … it’s not even Saturday!). I’m squeezing in my final entry to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday (Keep it CAS) before it closes in a few hours and last but not least, I’m linking up at Simon Says Stamp Monday for the Got Ink? challenge. Phew! Here, at last after all that, is my card …
The images and sentiment are all WMS. I stamped the (triangular … ish) trees and the garlands over them in silver, masking off where needed. Then the sweeping stars were stamped using the same garlands stamp and a mask, and all the silver was embossed to give it shine and sparkle. I added the greeting and finished off with a couple of scored lines to ‘ground’ the trees. Now I look at it, maybe the sweeping stars on the left should’ve been further down, it would’ve been more balanced. What d’you think?
Time for bed (doesn’t that come round just too quickly!) … thanks so much for calling by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
