One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #13 - Gift

Hello everyone!  It's another warm day here in New Brunswick.  I'm loving the warmer, sunnier weather.  I could wish for less humidity but I'll take that over the horrible winter we had.  Anyway, it's time for another challenge over at OLCCC!  As usual, the challenge is anything goes but there's always an optional twist.  This time it's "gift".

So, interpret that as you will.  :-)  Remember, if you use the twist you'll be entered in for a prize drawing. Here's my card...

I decided to switch it up a bit again and use coloured cardstock as my card base.  I have a tendency to always use white for my cards.  Not sure why.  This time I chose a nice dark blue.  I stamped my gift boxes (STAMPlorations - Dee's Artsy Impressions) and embossed them in white.  I did the same for the sentiment (Stampabilities).  Then I coloured in parts of the gift boxes with Wink of Stella and a silver metallic marker.  They are so much more glittery in real life.  It's a pretty wick card to make but fun.  Could be done in so many colours too.

Well, I hope you'll take a moment to come over to the OLCCC blog and check out what the other DT girls have created.  As always, they have outdone themselves.

Have an amazing day and thanks for stopping by for a visit!
