Joy...of Finishing a Challenge

Whew...I have been trying to finish the Sketch Saturday Challenge since Sunday! I've tried several variations that just weren't good enough in my eyes. Eventually, I decided to go with creating a white and gold Christmas card...which I quickly found needed a third color (my wheels weren't turning enough, I suppose :O) This is what I came up with.


I finally incorporated wire into my paper crafting! I'm so excited about that! I LOVE to make jewelry, but haven't had the opportunity of late, so pulling the two hobbies together, is gratifying for me. I was inspired to make the ornaments when I saw the flowers Chat created on one of her cards. Her cards are amazing by the way! Well, when the flower idea wasn't working out for me with this layout, I turned to the holidays...again :) I'm not sure that I'm completely satisfied, but I'm happy I finished my challenge.


Wow...it's only Tuesday. If only I could craft every day...

You could craft everyday. 'Course you'd have to develop insomnia or pick up a habit of caffeine. Priorities I guess. =\
