So, I have a card today that was made with three Christmas challenges in mind. Jingle Belles has an Earth Day theme where you are asked to reuse something. Here's Festive Friday's inspiration picture.
They get better every time! :-). And Merry Monday wants you to use Slate, Kraft, a White or Cream. I'm sneaking in under the wire with this one! I've got a little bit of red and green in my card and I hope that's okay.
I cut out part of a old Christmas card for my main image. I took a piece of slate card stock embossed it with a damask embossing folder (Sissix). Then I took some white paint and a sponge and wiped over the raised image. It reminds me of the mirror in the FF picture. I attached my image to this panel and layered it on white and then a kraft card base. I added the white bow and underneath what looks to be slate and white twiggy greenery but it's actually snowflakes. Made by my new Martha Stewart punch. :-).
As for my decision to switch to Wordpress, I think I'm going to stay where I am until they truly start to force the switch to google plus. Then I'll make my decision. I'm just to lazy to move right now! LOL!
Hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
