Susie's Sassy Challenge !

Susie at Sassy Designs has got a DT call out to join her team, you need to make a Christmas card and submit it by midnight on 27 October. So if you're interested make sure you hop over to Susie's blog !

So this is my card for the DT call and also for the Pink Elephant challenge, which is a sketch and also for the Die Cut Dreams challenge of Winter Wonderland. The main image is from the Elusive Images set called Christmas Flourish and has been stamped with Versamark and then embossed with a wonderful Tinsel EP called Snowflake. It really does sparkle in the light, which unfortunately you can't see on the photo ! I then used a Versamark pen around the edge of the card and embossed with the same EP. I didn't want it to look perfect so I smudged the Versamark a little. The paper is Basic Grey and this paper is actually the same sheet as it's double sided so blends together perfectly, the edge punch is by Fiskars. The snowflake brads were silver when they started out, but I felt they were too shiny and the wrong colour, so I used gold alcohol ink on them. I punched the snowflakes from white card and then used Distress inks on them before using the Versamark pen and then the EP on them.

The sentiment is also from the Elusive Images set which I've stamped in Adirondack Stream ink and then swiped the ink pad around the edge of the paper.

I decided to add some detail to the inside of this card and used a corner stamp from a Habico set of stamps. I stamped it first onto a piece of scrap paper then onto the Basic Grey paper so it was paler in colour. I think this photo has come out a little blurred, unless it's!
Nearly the end of the week and only one more day before a very exciting week end......I'm booked onto the ArtsyCraft Week end run by Lin at LB Designs...and I am soooooo excited ! It's 2 full days of sheer indulgence and from the comments on Lin's blog from the people who attended last week end I won't be disappointed. Yippeee !
Thanks for looking
