A very happy Monday to everyone!! I hope you have had a magnificent weekend are are moving into a splendid week. Gosh, autumn is arriving here quickly and these mountains are just a gorgeous sight to behold----but I still don't like autumn 'cause I know that means winter is on its way.....sigh!!!!
Today is the new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and what a fun challenge it is!!! For this fortnight we are asking that you use something metallic....silver....gold...or any combination!!! And you know, as always, there is a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant so we would love for you to come over and show us your very creative and lovely creations!!!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting and the DP is from the Kaisercraft December 25th paper pad. I used the darling little Jingle Jangle Tilda from the new A Christmas Story Collection now shipping at Magnolia-licious. She was colored with Copics and Flexmarkers, adding Prisma Glitter to the string of bells and Liquid Applique to her hat before cutting her out with SB Petite Ovals. The double flat bow is made with the luscious Silk Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added some Self-Adhesive Rhinestones to the Decorative Metal Corners. To finish the front I made a festoon like the one Tilda is holding with tiny silk ribbon and bows to anchor the Miniature Gold Bells.
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join in with us at the Wild Orchid Challenge this fortnight!! Can't wait to see you there!!!
