Hello! I hope you are having a great beggining of the week...
I would like to invite you to play with us this week at Digi Makeover Challenge, our challenge is a very helpfull one: Christmas/ Holiday!!! Remember to use a digi stamp, to follow this week's theme and if you would like to be considered as a Guest Designer, put GDT after your name when you link up your project.
Are you making your greeting cards or you wait until the last week before the holidays??? I made some back in July and some last month too, but now I am in a hurry for doing more and sending to my family and friends :) OK, this is the card I made for this week's challenge.
I used Lars' Presents and colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. (I have the bad habit of coloring before chosing the papers and now that the card is finished I feel bother by that blue present in the middle of the image...) I placed it on a red mat.
I used a dark red cardstock with fibers on the background that I really love and normally only use it for Christmas cards... and torn one of the edges and made some faux stitches on the background to match the sketch I folllowed. I also used two different green plaid with golden swirls dp (from the same set). I used a green ribbon (from Crafty Ribbons), made a bow, also a golden cord and tied two small bells and made another bow. The sentiment is stamped from a Christmas set I've got in a candy that Jacque offered a few weeks ago and I won (yeah!) and used the same red cardstock as a mat.
I really hope you like my card and feel inspired to make Christmas cards and play with us. Also I would like to invite you to visit the other DT members as this ladies are amazing and always have so gorgeous projects to display (links on the left sidebar or in the challenge blog).
