Popping in on this 'five-sleeps-before-Christmas day' to share Inspiration Challenge #72, where we're invited to draw inspiration from this shimmery, sparkly, gorgeous city scene.
Incredibly talented Karen Mead is joining us as a Guest Designer, and her card, along with those of my team mates, capture the *WOW* of the photo beautifully. Please be sure to visit their blogs, if you have time, and leave them some love; I know you'll make them smile:
With the busy-ness of wrapping up work for the break (woo hooooo...two weeks off! YES!!! *fist pump and happy dancing wildly*) getting ready to travel four hours north to see my family this weekend, back home on Sunday, then six hours west, on Christmas Eve day, to spend Christmas with my husband's family, my creativity opted for a simple, clean, quick, and oh-so-literal interpretation.
Paper Smooches city-scape die, cut twice in purple cardstock, once in silver shimmer paper, then the purple offset over the silver,and a dive into a new set of sentiment stamps from Lil Inkers. The black frame is shimmer paper, as well.
Hope you're inspired a wee bit by my card, Karen's and the design teams, and that you'll find some crafting time to join us in the gallery. The winner will be invited to guest design in a future challenge.
My card's heading off to Happy Little Stampers~December Challenge
Wishing you all a most wonderful 'nearly Christmas' weekend!!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
