More Challenges

I created this card yesterday for Sherrod Studio. It's actually a birthday/cupcake set which I turned into a Christmas idea by cropping off the last line of the sentiment and choosing red, green and gold as my color combo. The gifts are great. Stamp two of them out, color and cut. Then I propped up the red and gold gifts on dimensionals...presto...you've got some depth!


I combined 2 SCS challenges to create this fairy card. I was inspired by this poster for the CAS inspiration challenge. Then I coupled it with today's color combo. But, I swapped out black for chocolatechip. This gal is an earthy sprite and needed some deep brown. It might be a little drifting from CAS....but I had to do it...fairies NEED sparkles. haha.
Also, I got the $150 Sizzix alphabet set for 9.97 yesterday at Mikes. I read they were on clearance late Saturday night. Since I don't shop on Sundays, I zipped over to the craft store first thing on Monday. Beelined it to my secret clearance section...haha...and found 2 sets! Cha-CHING! As I was wondering around the store, I spied a woman who looked like MissBoo/Jen. So I called out "Jen?" and sure enough...it was! Since she is the hostess of the CAS challenges, I just had to honor her by using my new toys!

Depth (your Christmas card) is always SO pleasing to me on cards. Love also how you did the "hope" on Sprout's card...the ribbon is the perfect touch.
