You can run, but you can't hide - LOL. It seems like every challenge has had a Christmas in July theme these past few weeks. I was so NOT in a Christmas mood and have been avoiding every such challenge. But Our Creative Corner finally got me! Our theme this week is, of course, Christmas in July. So I dragged out my stamp inventory binder and leafed through it, looking for something that would get me excited - or at least give me an inkling of an idea of where I wanted to go with this. I decided to ease into the season with something simple. So here's the result - very simple layout - main panel all image - a dash of distressing and a couple of embellies, oh, and of course a bit of stitching. Sort of a simple country Christmas. What do you think? I kind of like it, but am not over the moon about it. I think it's a mellow, laid back card and that's how I feel about it.
Card Details: The stamp set is Peaceful Wishes from SU. Paper - CS is Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel, the DP is old stash from Cosmo Cricket Be Good line (LOVE it and have been hoarding for years!), image stamped on watercolor paper with Ranger DI in Pine Needles and Fired Brick, sponged with Creamy Caramel and Vintage Photo DI, snowflakes cut with Spellbinders dies, red hemp twine from SU, lace dyed with Vintage Photo DI, wooden button, ribbon rose and chunky glitter from Jo-Ann's.
So now it's time to check out the samples over at Our Creative Corner and since it's the weekend, why not relax and do some blurfing at the other DTs' blogs.
