I'm entering this card into both the Freshly Made Sketch challenge and the challenge at Just Add Ink, which is to use something new. The JAI challenge came at a perfect time because on Thursday I received a rather large demo order, plus my class order, which of course I had to add to (I admire demos who can put in an order without adding just a little something to it...) Anyway, suffice to say, I now have buckets of the promotion ribbon!
In my order was the Snowflake Soiree set, plus the 3 builder wheels that match. This is also the first time I've used Raspberry Ripple in a significant way. And I've been hoarding that silver glimmer paper. Actually, I'll let you in on a little secret. I'm so frugal with it, that I cut the inside of the rectangular frame and used it for the snowflakes.
Enough yapping. Here's the card:
I'm convinced the word "Merry" is crooked, but it was really hard to decide which angle was straight. I lined up the "err" but the "y" seems to be a bit higher. Next time I'll try lining up the top of the "rry" and see if that looks better.
Thanks for looking.
