CASE-ing Christmas Challenge #5


Thanks for stopping by again.  I apologize, but this post is going to be short and sweet.  Somehow I forgot to set my alarm, and I overslept. lol

It's time for another CASE-ing Christmas challenge. Here is this weeks card, created by Mynn.  Love the colors...

And here is my card.

As I mentioned above, I LOVE the colors that Mynn chose for her card, so I went in that direction this time.  I also attempted to keep it pretty simple.  I just got this Memory Box ornament die and really like the detail it has.  And, even though I'm not a fan of glitter, I love the glitter paper I saw Jennifer McGuire use on one of her cards and had to try it out.  It's fantastic!  It adds lots of sparkle, and you don't get glitter on anything.  Win/win for me!  I'm going to enter my card for the following challenges.

The Pink Elephant #283: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Take Your Pick (I chose the sketch, this is my loose interpretation)
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

I have to run, as I'm going to be late for work.  I do hope you'll check out what everyone has created for you this week.  I'm hoping to get some crafty time in this weekend, so that I can share another card with you soon.  Also, don't forget to stop back on Wednesday, to see what my excitement has been about lately. :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

You are right - this is a lovely color combination. Speaking of combinations - great combo of textures, lines, details on this!
Fellow NW Iowa carder! Thanks for popping over to my blog. Hobby Lobby, lunch, and meeting a card enthusiast? Sounds like another winning combination!
