Whoa is me! This is my last week as a guest designer over on the Friday Mashup (http://www.fridaymashup.com/2011/11/fm34-sugar-and-spice-make-christmas.html). I have had a lot of fun trying my hand at this challenge thing! It was cool to have a mashup challenge early and see what I could do with it before I ever saw what someone else did with it. I rather enjoyed myself! Hey, Mike-y, she likes it. So, alas, here's my final challenge as November 2011 (I just accidentally typed 2012... an omen?)
The challenge was to make a Christmas theme card or make a card using an aqua, Soft Suede, and Whisper White OR Mash it Up and create a Christmas themed card using those colors. I decided right away to mash it up, and the colors told me they wanted to use my Dasher Stamp, one that had no ink on it for while. I also wanted to case a card from the cattie (from page 45). I really liked that punch behind the four corners. Here is how mine came out. I also added some more layers and instead of pearls, I used a little aqua colored bling. I put three in his antler swirl and one bigger one in each corner. Oh! I embossed Dancer... that's important to know, and as you can see, I added another layer in . I sprayed my Smooch spray on the aqua base (it is actually Pool Party). Then that whole front piece is popped up using the dimensionals.
To be honest, I didn't love it at first. I actually took it off the front twice. I just really felt like it was missing something. I decided it was missing some ribbon... so I added some. (duh!)
