Well hello gentle readers! By now you've probably given up on me and decided that I have gone to live in outer Mongolia..............! I wouldn't blame you. I've been busy with life, family and friends and with preparations for the Stampin' Up! European 5th Convention later this week.
Finally though I have got to my blog and you kind supporters of it. I've made my card for the Christmas Card Club, the challenge for which was set by Carol. Interesting challenge and not only was it challenging to do, but it stretches your known ideas of Christmas and tradition. One of my lovely customers sent a beautiful 'pink' card for Christmas a couple of years ago and it struck me then how clever it was as it stood out from all the others as it was so different and actually very appealing. I hope you like this made with the single stamp Christmas Star stamped simply with pink pirouette and scored on it's design to give it some 3Dness! I've used a sentiment from Christmas Messages and the small star from the Merry Minis punch pack and my trusty large star punch which sadly is no longer available. I love bling and so there's mirror card from my stash and silver glimmer paper and of course what's bling without a rhinestone!
Gorgeous grunge paint spatter stamp, although you can only just make it out, gave some colour to my Pretty Print embossed background and a bit of smudging everywhere brings it all together!
Thanks Carol for a different challenge.
Thanks for your patience, I hope you'll be back for more!
