A little white space and a Midas Touch. I thought I would try to tackle two challenges with one card again. I think I might just have pulled it off.

The first challenge is for 365 Card Challenge-Day 183- White Space, this is the sketch, I think the title tells the tale :).

The second Challenge is for Jingle Belles, see next paragraph for details.

"The challenge direction this week involves a decidedly limited-and gloriously metallic-color palette, since everything king midas touched turned immediately into gold. to widen the possibilities just a little further, we're stretching the point, and asking you to make your holiday cards from gold AND/OR silver, and we'll allow the addition of white AND/OR cream."

I know I did not make the card from Gold or Silver, but I did use Gold so I might disqualify myself but I though I would go for it anyway. And as I go to post to the Jingle Belles site, I see I missed the deadline... karma for not enough Gold maybe.....

I embossed the card base then I used my Poinsettia Spellbinders to make multiple flowers, I also embossed them with my poinsettia embossing folder, I stamped Seasons Greeting on a circle, added a little gold dove. I finished with some Gold and Holly Stickles.

Supplies: Kraft and red cardstock, Designer Paper-Penny Black, American Crafts-Merry Mint, Hot of the Press- Tiny Words and Images, Spellbinders-Nestabilites, Sizzix- Poinsettia Embossing folder, Misc circle punches, Stickles.


  1. Lovely card Sis. Fab photography of it even, I can see the goldy bits.

    Blogger ate my first comment. It was funnier, better and longer but my fingers doth protest.

    Just know I love ya

  2. Good morning Nina:)
    I think you pulled it off quite nicely.LOVE your card!!:) I thought that circle at the bottom of the sketch looked kinda odd until I saw your flowers.Too COOL!!:)Love your embossing too!!I just might have to try this one some day!!


  3. Absolutely gorgeous, Nina! Love the color scheme and the little gold sparkle really sets it all off. Great take on the White Space challenge at 365 Cards and I hope you come back and play with us often!
