I am pretty excited though that my card from last weeks Freshly Made Sketches earned me a title of Perfect Princess, how fantastic is that :) big smiles... thank you so much ladies. I will post my little badge with honour. If you have not seen the amazing cards created by some very talented card makers so hop on over to the blog to take a peek.
With that all said it is time for the new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Lesley has created a wonderful sketch for us to try.
This card should have been relatively easy to make happen, no way no how, this endeavor spanned two days. I think the ol' creativity flew the coop for awhile. Alas it sorta came together today enough for me to get it off the craft mat.
As I was out shopping for a dress shirt with my son yesterday at Winners, I thought I would take a look in the kitchen section (my husband started my oven mitts on fire the other day) needing some replacement mitts. We have to go through the stationary isle to get there, and there was an amazing section of designer paper stacks who would have thunk it... Winners of all places. Anyhoo, found this wonderful My Mind's Eye - O Christmas Tree Glitter cardstock stack, not that I need any more but it is so pretty and sparkly.
Sheesh boring you now, so pretty little faux poinsettia's are created from misc flower punches then heat embossed with the Antiquities embosssing powder, layered with foam tape and topped with a gem.
Supplies: Cream and burgundy cardstock, Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye, Verve-Glad Tidings, misc punches and embossing folders, Recollections rhinestones.
