Little Bears Christmas Tree at Wild Orchid Challenge and WINNER!!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you have begun what will be a marvelous week! Thank you all so much for your best wishes on my little R&R and it was a nice little getaway--hopefully the renewal will bring forth some more creative ideas...smile!! I think it does us all a little good to get away to new environs!
For the next two weeks at Wild Orchid Challenges we have a magnificent sketch by the inimitable Bev Rochester who has also asked that we use the sketch for a Christmas card. Please remember the following: All entries must have at least one WOC product on it. You can combine our challenge with no more than 2 other challenges. You must link back to the Wild Orchid Challenge blog. NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. So come on over and join in with us! We would love to see your interpretation of Bev's sketch on a Christmas card and you will be in for the marvelous surprise from Wild Orchid Crafts!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and .the DP is BG Nordic Holiday.The sweet image I used is Little Bears Christmas Tree from LOTV's latest release. The image was stamped on XPress-It Blending Card and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Stickles, WOC 100 Grit Gold German Glass Glitter. To finish the front of the card, I used a couple of tree buttons which were decorated with more German Glass Glitter, Holly Leaves, Poinsettias with German Glass Glitter centers, Small Filigree Silver Corner, and a Silk Ribbon bow to dangle a tree charm.
The inside is very simple and you will notice that I didn't do any machine stitching on this card, which was a new trial for me...lol.. I just added some of the same touches from the front...and that's it for this card!
I hope you like my little card and will decide to join us this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge...please drop over and see the gorgeous samples by the WOC DT!!!
