Crafty Critters Challenge #11

Hello! How are you today? I am doing well! I have had a very full, busy day! I broke my day into 30 minute increments and went back and fourth between craft projects and house projects! I was surprisingly productive! I got two swaps finished up and two other packages ready to mail! I got a third swap designed and started and managed to get the fridge, freezer, pantry and microwave all cleaned out and scrubbed shiny! :) We stay so busy with all of our running any more that these chores wind up getting put on a back burner. I was happy to get them caught up! :)

I also managed to get my latest Crafty Critter Challenge card finished! I must say I LOVED THIS CHALLENGE!!!! Tracey hosted (Hiya Tracey!!). This was an awesome challenge!! Here are the details:

Use SCS Card Sketch 240
No Red or Green
Use Stickles and Ribbon
Use Any Christmas Image

I was going to go with a baby blue right up until the last minute and then this silver and pink combo screamed out at me! I used SU! Pink Pirouette as my base. I stamped the flower from Delightful Decorations in Pretty in Pink and added Stickles to the center of each. I used Whisper White punched with my eyelet border punch as my panel #2. I used one of the ornaments from Delightful Decorations as piece #3 and 'hung' it with ribbon. I made panel #4 using the deer from SU! Winter Post. I sponged blue on top and sponged a moon using the masking technique. I lined the edge of the white with Dazzling Diamonds to create a glistening snow-y effect. I mounted it on pink and white and outlined all of the edges using a silver marker. Here is my challenge card:




I want to make all of my Christmas cards in pink now! I just love the way the pink and silver look together! :)

Ok, lots to do tonight and an early day tomorrow! Hope that you have a wonderful night! I will be back soonest!
