MCT ~ Designer Challenge

Hello ~ welcome to the last My Creative Time Designer of the year! This year has flown by and I am still cant believe Christmas is just around the corner! Believe it or not I JUST started Christmas shopping! Yep ~ I am so not prepared for this Christmas this year! Sigh! So if you haven't seen me on your blog or Facebook pages, my apologies! I will catch up soon!
Any way, today Emma and the design team have a beautiful color and sketch challenge  for you talented crafty people out there! So I looked at the photo inspiration picture and the sketch and decided to take a few elements from each to create my card. Super simple card that can be mass produced pretty easy! Lets just say there won't be enough time to send any cards out this year but hopefully this could be one for next year! As usual I will list all materials below.

Materials Used:
Just For You ~ trees
Warm Holiday Fun ~ ornaments
Gift Card Sentiments ~ "Christmas" sentiment
Lowercase Fun Dies ~ letters
Paper ~ PTI and Recollections
Ink ~ Archival

We hope you can join us for this challenge! Head on over to Emma's blog, click HERE, to get all the details and to see what all the super talented design team has created!

  6. Oh my goodness, what a lovely card my friend. I love the deep, rich colors you used and your stamping is fabulous.
    I am about two thirds of the way finished with my shopping but very, very behind on crafting, cleaning, cooking, etc, etc, etc. I'm also terribly behind on my blog visits (stupid cold) but I'm trying to get caught up. I'm off to see what other amazing things you've been up to!

  7. This card is fabulous my friend!! So awesome!! I love how you did the title and the pretty trees in the background!! AMAZING!!!

  8. I also probably won't get cards out for Christmas this year...where did the time go? Thinking if I start work on cards in January I might have a chance to get them done. You have gotten so much done in your posts. Many beautiful projects like this card! I love the glitter paper on the ornaments and then used for the stars on your trees. Great idea to use the letter dies on the ornaments. Super job!
