One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #19 Reminder

Just a reminder that there's still about a week left to link up your cards to One Layer Christmas Card Challenges current challenge.  As always it's anything goes but you have the option to use the twist.  The twist this time is Silver.  If you do use the twist you'll be entered in for the drawing to win an ARTplorations stencil!  Here's my card to inspire you...

I stamped my branches and birds (Penny Black) and embossed in a silver embossing powder on a black card base.  This powder has glitter in it too so it's nice and sparkly.  I embossed the sentiment (Michaels) in the same powder.  I wanted the birds to stand out more so I coloured them with my red Spectrum Noir marker.  It's a quick card but very striking I think as well as untraditional in the colour scheme.

Anyway, I hope you'll take a moment to join us over at OLCCC.  We would love to see you there!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

  8. I find OLCs so hard to do, they often end up looking a bit bland, but this is far from bland, it's so elegant with the silver on black and little touches of red....
