It's starting to look a bit like Christmas....NOT!
So, these cards were made with 2 challenges in mind. First, Cute Card Thursday. Challenge #77, Strawberry Mint Julep is the title. To make a project using the colors pink and green. The second challenge and my second posting entry is for Caardvarks, to use one of 3 sketches provided, I used all 3 sketches to make this cute gift set.
The Christmas papers are a retired set from Anna Griffin. I love the lime greens, holiday reds and bright pinks in this palette. The Christmas tree stamps are CTMH, Evergreen- using sweet leaf and black inks, and using rhinestones also from CTMH. The green glitter is a bargain from Martha Stewart that I picked up at Walmart. Miscellaneous pieces of ribbon to complete the look.
The sparkle and shine, the true colors really get lost on a computer screen. Front window shots help, but this coastal storm we have been in for the past 2 days doesn't help my lighting.
Thanks for stopping by today. I am off to work on more purging- speaking of which, ever check out Use It! ? This site offers a challenge each week, with 3-4 requirements to complete your project and to help you move out your hoardes. This week, my cards don't fit the criteria, but I kept it in mind as I was crafting!
