ShowCASe Your Style Color Challenge


Hello!!  Today starts Challenge #2 for the new ShowCASe Your Style challenge blog!  The theme for the next two weeks is a photo inspiration and it is a gorgeous photo!


Here is my card based on the photo.

Jen Carter Clearly Whimsy November

Whimsy Stamps has the perfect die for this photo challenge!  It's called the Holiday Gift Tag die set and it is on sale for $3.00!  I used embossing powder and washi tape to make the stripes on the ornament.  I also made one stripe with scor-tape and glitter.

The "Merry" was stamped in black and is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set. I die cut the Christmas Large Word die from gold metallic paper.  To finish the card off I added sequins in assorted sizes.

Now I do have to say that this isn't the cleanest card I've ever made.  I was so focused on the inspiration photo that I forgot to keep it clean.  I'll try to do better next time! :)

I hope you'll play along!  There is a great prize up for grabs!

Supplies not listed above:
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories The Story of Us
Sequins:  Cartwrights Sequins & Pretty Pink Posh
Gold Paper: DCWV
Twine:  The Twinery
