I've been lucky the last couple of days to find myself with some extra time so I've been putting it to good use in the old craft cave. Today I've got a card to share that I made for the inspiration challenge at Festive Friday using the sketch at Cardabilities.
The antique mirror coupled with all that white in the inspiration photo made me think of vellum and the brown from the twigs made me bring in some natural colors so I used Crumb Cake as my card base and added some Chocolate Chip for depth. Although it might not look like it, the vellum is not an ordinary flower but is actually a poinsettia (my nod to festive). The sketch made me, once again, lament that I don't own any doilies so I improvised the big lacy circle by using a stamp instead.
This Christmas card may be a bit over the top for some on my mailing list since not everyone will understand why I put images of a coffee stain and some ink splatters with my poinsettia! But that's what I saw in my head when I found the sketch so that is what I made!
Thanks for stopping by!
