Today marks the 10th week over at Just Us Girls! Today's challenge is an awesome sketch hosted by Pam! So many options with this one...especially with Christmas right around the corner. Those circles could be turned into a LOT of things ;] I won't give you ideas...I'll just peruse your original creations as they pour in :O) Here's Pam's sketch:
I stamped the outlined poinsettia's from Melissa Bickford's PTI Peaceful Poinsettia set, using SU! Chocolate Chip ink on some awesome, vintage pink and red damask paper that my sister sent to me! I cut out 6 layers of poinsettia's in three sizes and layered them using dimensionals. I adhered brown pearl rhinestones from Michaels in the centers and added some cool olive and artichoke colored branches using a Martha Stewart punch. I cut out my rectangle using a long rectangle Nestability and sponged it with SU! Pink Pirouette ink before removing it from the die. The sentiment is from the same Peaceful Poinsettia set...I stamped it using Memento, Tuxedo Black ink. Isn't it striking?!
The background paper is from the same pack of Basic Gray Nook and Pantry, that Tammy gave me in Philly :O) Boy am I making good use of it! I am having a hard time holding myself back from buying a collection of different packs for my craft room! The brads are American Craft (I trimmed the backs using wire cutteres and adhered them with a double layer of glue dots so that I wouldn't have unsightly prongs on the interior of my card) and the ribbon is PTI Dark Chocolate Twill.
My color palette came from the AMAZING Color Throwdown challenge (CTD71) Danielle presented to us on Wednesday! Isn't is a fab combo? RIGHT up my alley...
