Krafty Card

Hello Everyone,

For today I will playing along with The Challenge, Inkspirational and Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. The photo inspiration from The Challenge was my jumping off point for this card and then I saw what HLS was doing and it all came together. Here is my card for today.. Enjoy!

Spotlighting the poinsettias on the tag and coloring
the rest of the image on kraft paper in white.
 Entering Challenges:
The Challenge: #50- photo inspiration
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge: November 2015- Tag
Inkspirational: #95 Colour Challenge: Anything goes with silver


Just a bit of silver to lighten up the design.
The silver is actually ribbon that I had to cut and then tie.
for the sentiment I laid them out in strips
and die cut the sentiment.

Close up details of the card. I think the spotlighting is really effective and the 
silver finishing touches is just what this festive card needed.

Usually I go into a project with an inkling of what the design might look like. For this one however, I had no idea... So I'm lying in bed thinking of the card-to-be with all the challenges at the forefront of my thoughts. Then I thought of this stamp came into play and spotlighting it with a tag. The rest just fell into place.. ah! Time to find another challenge to enter.

That should do it for me.. Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hope I made your day a bit brighter. Take care all and we will see you soon.

All the best,

A wonderful card! The tag is gorgeous. I love the way the image carries over onto the background of the card. And the die cut "joy" is perfect.

Gorgeous! Love how the main poinsettia is in in colour and the others are neutral. It really makes the coloured flower POP on your card :)
