Couple of Challenges

I do have to say, I am loving having time to join in challenges.  I think months went by where I just did not have it! I'm happy it's improved.

I'm starting with the Less Is More Challenge #469 - Traditional Christmas.  

I'm thinking most people think green and red - me?  I go gold.  Most of my decorations are gold too.  I used an unbranded snowflake stacked a few times in thicker card stock [for dimension], and topped with gold mirror paper.

The sentiment is from Waffle Flower Wonderful Christmas Combo.  Love this combo as it has sentiment stamps AND matching dies.  Perfect.



I went on to play in Peace on Earth #20.  I do love creating from a mood board!  So inspiring.

Again, an unbranded die for the ivy  - [why oh why did I throw away labels!!], that I blended on some Oxide ink. I used Simon Says Nested Oval Dies for the framing.

And here is one of the Waffle Flower sentiments using the matching dies.  I really like this type of die that follows the shape of the words.

Here is the mood board - I was inspired by the right top.

That's it for today!  Thanks Challenges - I had a blast :)

Thanks for stopping by~

Gorgeous Christmas designs Vicki! Love the CAS on the first with the large snowflake and the holly sprig is so delicate and pretty! I think I'm feeling a bit of the "just don't have it" right now...but at least I have some catching up of posts anyway! LOL
