Peace on Earth

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

We're on a little bit of an unanticipated hiatus from colourQ, but we should be back to normal soon.  In the meantime I am continuing my fast and furious pace of churning out Christmas cards.  Luckily some of my favorite challenges have been very accommodating in the sketch and color categories!  Today I've got a card that I made using the sketch at Mojo and the colors at Global Design Project.

I love these earthy colors for Christmas.  And the bit of red makes everything so festive!  I used a texture plate to emboss the Early Espresso layer (can you see it?) and I found some really old Christmas patterned paper to add some pizzazz.  I even used some of my ancient supply of grosgrain ribbon - accented by a bit of sparkly baker's twine!  And to finish this off, I stuck on a few rhinestones.  This went together pretty quickly!

I really need to start mailing out some of these Christmas cards I've been hoarding all these months.  That's my project for the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by!
