I digress... the point is that I was otherwise occupied, and time slipped by me so quickly! So here I am, to catch up with a couple of Festive Friday cards for our current challenge.
We are currently working with a theme challenge, this time around the theme being "Whimsy"... something way out of my box! Here is the graphic:
So here is what I came up with for last week, something with my kids in mind... I always reach for this Waltzingmouse set when I need a kid's Christmas card. It's just too perfect!
And then I sat down to make another one for this week, and was kind of stumped. Like I said, whimsy is a bit out of my comfort zone! But after a quick browse on Pinterest, I had the idea to duplicate one of those brightly coloured wreaths made out of baubles and ornaments... not sure if I pulled it off, but I tried!
I tried to find the perfect spot to photograph this so you could see the Glossy Accents and glitter effect, but I think I'll call that a fail. Anyway, I used the gloss to try and emulate the dimension and shine of ornaments, then added various rhinestones to keep things interesting. I am not sure if I love the whole thing, but it took way too much effort to create it for me to just toss it!
You have until Wednesday if you want to play with us... just head over to the challenge blog to check out the details and see the other cards from the team!
