MDUC #116

Color Challenge: PINK, WHITE & GOLD

First of all HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!  Woo hoo!!  Happy to report it took me 6 hours to make this card!!  YIKES!  LOL!  Well not happy to report it took 6 hrs but am happy I am spending time in my craft room.  And I'm not even done yet!  Love it when hubby leaves for the day.  hee hee

So this week at MDUC we have this amazing challenge which I thought I would turn into a Christmas card.  Well pretty much everything I am creating is being made to serve a dual purpose.  hee hee!  So today I paired up Snowman with Star with this snowflake circle frame that I can't find now but I did buy both from Magnolia-licious.  It did make my card image bigger but I just love how it turned out.  And it was a total fluke that I nailed the masking of the two images on the first shot! 

I distressed all layers with gold, added a gold doily, some cheesecloth, a few doohickey swirls, ribbon & lace and the "Snow Flurries" Tim Holtz snowflake border punch using chipboard.  I even distressed that with gold and added crackle.  Looks cool IRL.  Also added glitter for the snow under the snowman and flower soft to her hat.

You should SEE all the ladies creations!  HOLI CRAP did they all do amazing!  So if you need some inspiration please visit the Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog and be ready to have your socks blown off --- I still need to find mine.

Ok so today's challenges I'm entering are:

Simply Create - Something 6 mos or images are a few seasons old but I just LUV them!

The ABC Challenge - Anything Goes - YAY!

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Distressed another one of my fav's!!

Well enjoy your day making cards and blog hopping.  Seems to be a very busy weekend for all that.  I'm off to work on something more now!
