Happy Wednesday, everyone! I have a Christmas card for you today---a rather unusually-colored Christmas card! I was intrigued by the colors in the Hand Stamped Sentiment challenge:
and the Global Design Project had a "CASE the Designer" challenge; I chose to replicate the sketch:
I pulled out a set I haven't used in a while, Hearts Come Home, and went to work:
The houses were stamped in Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo; the sentiment in Call Me Clover, then diecut with a Chalk Talk die. I added some diecut trees (Hometown Greetings) and layered it on a Lovely Lipstick DSP diecut circle:
Finally, I stamped another sentiment in Flirty Flamingo and mounted everything on a mat of Call Me Clover DSP and added a little ribbon trim! Definitely NOT traditional Christmas colors with that Flirty Flamingo in there, but it definitely gets one's attention! And just for fun, I am entering this at Just Us Girls' challenge of "houses"!
Thanks for popping in today!
Yesterday was a lovely day and I had some time to visit Longwood Gardens:
The lily ponds have been drained for the winter, but my brother says they are getting ready to fill them and add the lilies; the amphibians are ready! We saw both frogs and toads!
It's been a long winter and it was a delight to see all the flowers! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
