I created this card for 3 challenges. I found a new challenge called the Play Date Cafe Challenge #7-Green, Deep Red and White. The Our Creative Corner Challenge was to use one of the 12 days of Christmas. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday #115.
The stamp that I used is Gel-a-Tin. I embossed the tree with Zing green embossing powder. I embossed the birds with detail white. I ran the green panel through the Cuttlebug and used the Spellbinder for the white around the tree. I printed the saying from the computer. I added the Christmas flowers by Hero Arts.
I am going to go ahead and put this card into the DT tryout for Stampin' for the Weekend. You are supposed to make a card to show your style. That is so hard because I like to try many different things! I do love to emboss and I love simple, elegant cards. But I also like to color with my Copic markers, I love flowers, House Mouse stamps, I like to try vintage cards... I am done stressing about it. This one is going to be my entry!
I created this card for 2 challenges.
