Hi guys and gals hope you're all safe and warm away from the storms. I'm in the living room with the fire on its great except for the fact the rugby's on and David is very loud in his celebrating and criticising lol.
Anyway i'm here to share a little card I made yesterday with you. I'll be making my xmas cards all year round so this was my first for 2014. Let me know what you think
I used the justrite secret garden stamp for the back ground on black card with versamark and silver embossing powder. I backed this onto red and black card. This card is a 5x5 which is really unusual for me as i LOVE my 8x8 but i have loads of other sizes in my card box so i'm determined to use them and it takes me outside my comfort zone and helps me make different choices and go with new ideas. I definitely recommend it. The poinsettia is from a set my friend gave me and I just decoupaged it and put a large silver gem in the middle. I finished it off with some red corners which i made by pushing into versamark and covering with red embossing powder and i have to say the effect is pretty awesome (unfortunately by photo taking is not lol). I found a little sentiment in my stash and finished it off and I'm pretty pleased with the result the first of many I hope. I'm going to enter it into these challenges
