Winter Wonderland - Crafty Creations Challenge


Hi ya everyone,
  This week at Crafty Creations the ever so lovely Bernie set the challenge.  I have to say, I LOVED this challenge and this is actually the first time I've ever used a photo for inspiration in a challenge.  Here is the photo:
Pretty right!  I instantly thought of my beautiful stack from Tim Holtz called Vintage Shabby stack.  This is the quilted background paper on my card that is cut at 4.75 x 6.75 for a 5x7 card.  I then used my sewing machine and made a stitched border around the whole card with a white thread.  I used the Winter Wonderland cartridge for the trees and sentiments.  I glittered the background with my crystal fine glitter on white paper.

 I used more of the Vintage shabby stack for the trees and sentiments.  I also used my divine swirls and dots cuttlebug folders on the trees.  Finally, I used my iRock to add some embellishment.  I love how this card turned out and it was pretty quick and easy!

Make sure to head over to the Crafty Creations Challenge blog and join in the fun this week - use the photo for inspiration and you could win an adorable pack of stamps from the sweet Bernie!!
Hugs!
