I've watched Bonnie make some lovely cards over the past year with Merry Monday and whilst I was struggling to keep up with the cards I required, I vowed to join in this year. So here I am with a card for the first challenge of the year following the colours Island Indigo, Real Red, and Pool Party.
I stamped my image from the Hostess set Four Seasons, in Island Indigo and then again in Real Red and punched out using circle punches. I cut a background in Pool Party using the Labels Collection Framelit and embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. I attach the ring of snowflakes with Dimensionals with the robin circle in recess. Then added some Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes. On the Whisper White base I stamped the snowflake in pool party, sometimes stamping without reinking. I made a sentiment banner with the More Merry Messages Set.
Whilst I was trying out the colour variations, I made a couple of tags from the leftovers. Another tick in the box to have a supply of tags on hand!
Can you hear me patting myself on my back? Well it probably wont last but I will try!
