Halloween Florals in my previous post; glittery PS frames and sentiments in this one. Evidently, I’m experiencing some version of ‘season affectedness’ (disorder perhaps!!). As I mentioned in my Halloween card post, a search for themed paper sent me rummaging through my stash, where snippets of Chillingsworth Manor appeared as did some of my Christmas papers. Goal: to use up some of the old before breaking open the new paper pads that are calling (actually, yelling!) my name. Gotta heed the call, and, in my usual way, I’ve done so in quirky way.
This week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a photo inspiration.
Near the lower edge of the photo, the gold-ish frame caught my eye. Given that Christmas was already on (in?) my mind, I reached for one of my PS frames, a PS flourish die, my PS Merry Sentiments, and a trio of papers from a Simple Stories Christmas pad that is absolutely delightful (need to order that pad again…hope it’s still being continued!). Just an alert: my colours/patterns are not ‘traditional’ Christmas, but they are pretty with gold snowflakes (if you look really closely at the circles on the maroon paper), some brown, some beige and yes…plenty of gold. The frame and flourish come from glittery gold paper (last teensy bits fully used!!) and the sentiment, against the brown backdrop is also gold embossed. Although it didn’t photograph as well as I’d hoped, in real life, it’s rather pretty, or so my mom says, but she thinks all my cards are pretty! She’s an amazing mom, especially since she's so sweetly biased!!
A big Thank You to the wonderful ladies at CAS(E) this Sketch, whose challenge #43, designed by the talented Karolyn Loncon, provided inspiration for the layout.
Are you ready for my glittery framed, gold embossed, tan+brown+marooned Season's Greetings card? Here it is...and yep, it's different...
Thank you for dropping by; your company and comments are always welcome!!
Off to play with my niece and nephew...I think a pony ride is on the agenda, along with a horse-drawn cart ride. Fun times!!!
