Challenges

DRS Designs' challenge this week is to have just one decorative edge on your card. This was harder for me to do than I thought it would be. I think I go for a more symmetrical look. If you check out their blog you can see some really beautiful one edged cards!! Here's mine:


I started with a white card base and cut one edge off using a SU border die. I cut the same edge out of red CS to make a border for the white card. The Christmas ornaments are new from DRS Designs and will be released soon. They are so pretty. I stamped them in VersaFine Cardinal ink, embossed them with clear embossing powder, then added the red bows and rhinestones. The sentiment was also embossed. This is really a CAS card, but it took me a while to pull it all together. :-)

We'd love to have you come join us for this week's challenge.

My second card today is for Lesley's Merry Monday challenge #70. I haven't had the chance to play along with the Merry Monday challenges for a while now. I really like Lesley's sketch designs.

Here's this week's sketch:

 



Here's the card I created:


The card base is Real Red CS. The panels are DCWV DP that I've had for years. The main image is DRS Designs snowball blast. I love these little guys. They are so cute and easy to color. After adding some color with my Copics, the image was die cut, layered on real red and some stickles were added to give the snowballs some shimmer. Merry Christmas was stamped on the bottom panel in Memento black. Red bakers twine and a white button were added to complete the look. I think the round button sort of looks like a snowball.

Until next time,
shelia
