I am so glad today is Wednesday! It means I only have to get up early two more days this week. The weather here in the DFW area has been hot, so I think I'm going to plan a pool party/BBQ for some friends and I. Should be fantasic! :)
Since it is Wednesday, I have another Creative Belli challenge project for you. The challenge is to use a sentiment only. For all of the details, click HERE.
Now, before you say anything, let me explain. lol As you know, I'm a HUGE fan of non-traditional Christmas colors. When I was trying to come up with a card for today, I was totally stumped. I asked a friend to help me out, by picking a couple of colors, so that I could try to challenge myself. He chose yellow, black and green, which are the colors of his company's logo. At first, I didn't really like how it turned out, but he did, and asked if I could make 50 Christmas cards identical to this one for them to distribute this holiday. I declined, as I'm not one for mass producing anything, but I dig that he thought it turned out well. As I look at it, I'm thinking it has a "Tim Burtonesque" look to it, if that makes sense. lol At the end of the day, I'm content with being able to pull off these very difficult colors and make one more card for my stash. The flowers and ribbon, as well as the patterned papers, are my hoarded/neglected items for this challenge. I'm pretty sure we all know who will be getting this card for Christmas. I've combined the following challenges in my card as well.
JUGS #139 - Sketch
Stampalot Challenge (June) - Bingo: I chose ribbon/lace, polka dots & the color green
Christmas Card Challenge Week #27 - Sentiment Only
I do hope you'll head over to the Creative Belli blog to see the wonderful projects that everyone has provided for you today.
