For the Clean & Simple challenge I turned the sketch on its side. I made the backing paper myself using the wonderful Chrysanthemums from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Paper: Pink Hammered Card from stash
For the Waltzingmouse Challenge, I used all my lovely new stamps - they are fab!! Initially I'd thought of doing some lovely Christmas trees using the Teeny Trees set, but Julia beat me to it!! Her card is so beautiful. So I gave it a little more thought and decided to use my new Poinsettia stamps. I also used one of Claire's lovely text stamps - so pretty, along with a greeting from Compliements of the Season.
|WMSC18 - Christmas at last|
Spellbinders: Labels 10
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: Red glitter, Silver detail embossing powder
I'm really pleased with both these cards. I love the effect of the silver embossed text on the blue vellum - and it's so easy to do. I'll be able to make quite personal backing papers with the Text It set. And I love the poinsettias - I decided to do the large image flat on the paper and decoupage the two smaller images - they are so easy to cut out. I added a little red glitter to the centre - you've got to have bling at Christmas!!
I notice that I have another follower - welcome!! It's so exciting when I check my stats and followers, and I love to read all your comments. I do try to answer them too. If I haven't got back to you - my apologies.
And that's all for this evening. I've got to get back to my OU course - still working on my assignment. I am making progress - honest!! Back again tomorrow.
