A Couple of Challenges

Today I am joining in at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #267;  Blue, green, silver.

I used the CUTplorations Christmas Tree #1 die, and cut it out from an inked panel I made. [I am having so much fun  playing with ink - you never know what the outcome will be.]  That is fun to me.
----------------------------------------------------
I also went on to play in Inspired by All the Little Things #74.  I loved the inspiration photo they had!

I am caught up with Christmas cards, so I am working on my birthday stash now.  As you can see, I make cards ahead of time.  (That said, it doesn't mean I get them mailed out on time!  One of my 2018 goals -- cards mailed in time!)  My star [Pierced Star] and numbers [Emmit Numbers - retired] are from MFT.  I scored the card base, and then swiped an ink pad across the paper for the wood grain effect.  I love this card!

Challenges~  Thanks I had fun :)


Thanks for stopping by~

Both cards are fabulous Vicki! I love the vibrant greens and blues of that inked panel (reminds me of gemstones) and that 'wooden' panel on the second as a background is great! Have a lovely weekend! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

Great cards, Vicki. I love the colors. You're smart to be working on 2018 cards. I'm finishing up my Christmas cards.

Both cards are so beautiful! I think the colors on that tree die almost look like a foiled design. Your colors are just perfect together.
