For Someone Special

Good morning everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!
This week it's Shell's turn to host the challenge and she would like to see our creations for... Someone Special at Christmas
I decided to make a Christmas card for my wonderful In-Laws! It features the beautiful On a Winter's Day image by Delicious Doodles... I printed the image in a sepia tone and then added a touch of glitter to the snow with the Wink of Stella pen. The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug 5 x7 Winter Frolic folder, I used Walnut DI for the distressing and the sentiment is computer generated. The poinsettias were cut out with Spellbinder dies, spritzed with a little Perfect Pearls Mist and then I coated them with Rock Candy Distress Stickles... you can't see it very well in the photo- but this card is
so sparkly IRL! :)

Now head on over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous creations by the other team members!

That's it for now... enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Tammy, this is wonderful. I love the 2 tone colour effect, really makes the details pop. Sorry for the late visit. Cx

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

This card is fabulous! I am so impressed with how stunning it is even with such a limited color palette. I am a color-holic, so I appreciate people who can create masterpieces with only one or two colors. Well done (and I adore the dimension you added with the poinsettias, too) and thank you so much for sharing this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Shelly said...

Wow! You really pulled out the stops with this card, Tammy. It's so gorgeous. I love every little thing about it. Sorry I haven't been around to visit your blog lately. I really enjoyed browsing through your posts and seeing your wonderful creations that I had missed. Blessings and hugs!!!
