Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #153


Happy Wednesday to everyone!  This week's challenge is a sketch:


There are LOTS of possibilities with this sketch, so why don't you try it out and link it to Mr Linky on the DCBD blog?  We'd love to see what you come up with!!!  So here's my submission:


I really like this card!  It was tempting to want to glitter & bling this up with some Dazzling Diamonds and a few brads, but I purposely left it plain, as I wanted to showcase these colors and images.  Night of Navy and Sage Shadow are a great combo, and adding Brushed Silver really kicks it up.  I added the ribbon at the bottom because I really love that Sage Shadow grosgrain ribbon!!  The sentiment was done by inking the word "Joy" from a Many Merry Messages verse with my Night of Navy marker, then punching it out.  I also used Nesties for my circular layers. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

  • Stamps:  Dasher, Many Merry Messages, Christmas Punch
  • Paper:  Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Brushed Silver
  • Ink:  Night of Navy
  • Acc:  SU Dotted Texturz Plate, Circle Punches, NON marker, Nesties, Dimensionals, Grosgrain Ribbon

Oh. My. Goodness. I love everything about this card. I love the grosgrain with the knot in it, I love the color combo, I love the reindeer.
I am trying to figure out how to CASE this card {I don't have Dasher}

I love this card! I have fallen in love with Dasher and this one is the best I've seen so far! Very elegant and I would never have thought of that color combination, going to have to play with that one for sure! ~chris
