Embellish Color Challenge Holiday Card

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Ahh...I love clicking away at a new post!! Especially this one...my first post with my "new look"!! If you're a return visitor...what do you think?!? I love, love, LOVE it and, as I type, I can't wait to get to the "Publish Post" button to see how this finished project looks surrounded by the lovely, soft colors and images my wonderful new friend, Viola, has given my blog. If you have never met her, you must go visit her NOW! Well...do me a favor and take a quick look at MY card first...once you get to her blog...you won't want to leave!! (Love you, Viola!!)

O.K...moving on...gotta pick up the critters shortly...The Embellish challenge is to use the colors below on a holiday project. I didn't have time to get super creative, so mine is JUST a card. (Sorry to disappoint.) But this IS one of my favorite color combo's...

I couldn't help but envision pretty, lush patterns in pretty, lush layers...
with a classic sentiment...
Thus, the finished product...
I admit, I'm just a sucker for scallops! So I used Paper Studio's "Mirabelle", and My Minds Eye's "Bella Rose" papers and layered them, one on top of the other. The bottom scallop is stamped from PTI's original Guide Lines set. I just can't seem to put away the Tattered Angels chipboard frames either. The bow is made from another favorite--ribbon from MemrieMare at Etsy.

Sure would have liked to have made another card with these colors, but I'm in the middle of preparing the kids' program at church. Little extra time for at least a week!

I hope you're having a great day! Please know that I appreciate each and every visit!!
Thank you again, Viola!!

  1. I'm really sorry to have to be the one to break the news to you Geri...but there is no way that is JUST a card! It's another one of your beautiful creations and I absolutely love it! Did they pick their Color Challenge to match your gorgeous new blog? It couldn't be more perfect! I think I'll just stay here for a long while and soak it all in! Thank you so much!...Nancy :o)

  15. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
