A Fit for Two - Challenges that is...

Here's a card that I made today that actually fits two different challenges. YAY me!! I love it when I can combine two challenges. The design of the card is based on a sketch at the Card Patterns blog. It's really a great sketch and fit perfect for the challenge over at Flourishes - Timeless Tuesday Challenge which was to make the sentiment the focal point of the design.

For this card, I used a red cardstock base. The three panels are done with some red textured paper from my scrap bin - each section mounted on gold cardstock (slick finish). The sentiment is from the Flourishes Christmas Wreath set and was stamped on white cardstock from Flourishes . I cut the oval panel with a petite oval Spellbinder die, and then used the companion scalloped petite oval from Spellbinder for the backing. I punched a couple of snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and added a little sparkle with stickles. The poinsetta and leaf are Prima blooms. The gold ribbon is a metallic ribbon and added just the right amount of elegance. It's difficult to see on here, but I also sponged some Galaxy gold ink on the oval cut with the Spellbinder and then added a thin line around the outside edges with a gold pen. I even finished the inside of the card.

Now...adding it to my stack of Christmas cards that I've finished. Maybe this year I won't be rushing to finish cards two weeks before Christmas!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Love your comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave a little luv. Until next time....

Hugs!
