Crafty Ann's Challenge No 21- Friday 13/8/10

Another fortnight has flown by and it is time for yet another Crafty Ann's Challenge.  The challenge this fortnight is "Christmas in August".

Crafty Ann has a number of Christmas digital images in her shop here.  I chose to use the baubles and the holly frame.  The baubles I have printed onto some gold mottled stone backing paper and then coloured the bauble image and holly frame image with Promarkers and some Sakura Stardust pens.  I have mounted this onto two pieces of green holographic card which one piece I have put through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and the other I have put through the Cuttlebug Devine Swirls embossing folder.  I used some wide organza ribbon and a poinsettia flower that I received in some blog candy last year - well I've had them for a while to stroke and love - and now it's time for them to be put to good use.  I thought the card looked a bit bare down the bottom with the flower so I did some artwork with wire and seed beeds (the seed beads are from a necklace I broke some time ago so time to recycle).

Please have a look at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog to see the other Design Team members cards as they are all fab and we will all look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Our Creative Corner - Embossing
Digi Doodle Challenge - Flowers
Craft Your Days Away - Favourite things (digital images, ribbon, flowers for me!!)
Creative Inspirations - Recycle element on project (mine is my seed beads from a broken necklace)
Paper Sundaes - Metal
Stamping Vacation - Say no to brads and eyelets
Fab n Funky - Your favourite colours - for Christmas my favourites colours are red and green - boring I know.

Great card Kym, I love how outlined the baubles and frame and also how you've used the oval holly frame for the sentiment - I think that's a brilliant idea, I might just have to 'case' it!
