Traditional Red and Green

This month's challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges is to create something using your favorite colors.  My favorite Christmas colors are the traditional red and green.  I have used a K & Co. snowman diecut and vintage looking crinkle ribbon.  I added a crystal gem corner and a Tim Holtz pin with dangling charms.  I added the "25" to the enamel charm using rubons.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Marianne Designs.  The prize is two dies and she has tons of creative ideas on her website.  Be sure to stop by Sparkles and show us your favorite colors.

For the Boys

Our new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is to create something "For the Boys".  I chose to make a Father's Day card, since it is coming up quickly.  I used vintage looking map paper and an old Airmail envelope.  The ship in a bottle is a K & Co. sticker.  The propeller charm dangles from a decorative brad and baker's twine.  Join us at Ruby's and show us your creation.

Vintage Horse Card

The new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is to create something related to animals.  I chose this vintage horse postcard image because my oldest daughter loves horses.   This was her graduation card since she graduated with her Bachelor's degree on Saturday.  We are very proud of her.  Join us at Ruby's and show us your animal card.

Gorgeous Gowns

The new challenge at Alphabet Challenges is "G" for Gorgeous Gowns.  I chose a vintage print featuring an old fashioned gown.  I decided to use the elegant black and cream color scheme.  Vintage lace is always necessary with an old fashioned print.  I embellished the card with a cluster of vintage buttons.  Join us at Aplhabet Challenges and show us your design.
