Hello my friends!

A double challenge card today! I saw both of these and just had to have a go. I do hope the GOLD pearls qualify for the “Just Add Pearls” – the latest Just Add Ink Challenge. I don’t imagine it is restricted to pearly pearls??? 😉 Anyway … I just liked the challenge … and wanted to have a play.

The second challenge is a fabbo sketch for Nicole’s Festive Friday challenge. I must admit … even though I don’t get to play along EVERY week … I do try to do them as often as I can! And … my stash is gradually starting to build for next Christmas! It is now only 6 months away … so it is nice to get a little start on them!

The flag banner was created using a paper mask. I sponged some Marina Mist ink and then sponged some Frost White Shimmer Paint over the top before removing the mask. Then the snowflakes were stamped over the top. The photo doesn’t really show what a lovely effect this is!

Wasn’t it a wet weekend! And … for the public holiday … as well. But … it was nice to pop up to the shops … have coffee and do a little shopping! And … then we were home snuggly and warm for the rest of the day. Lots to catch up on today … because I missed my work day yesterday! Hope you enjoyed your long weekend (here in Australia)! Off to do some catch up!

  4. Oh, WOW, Andrea!! This is one stunning card! I love the way you created the shimmery flag, and I love the gold pearls you used with blues – I tend to think only of silver with blue, but your card is absolutely beautiful. So glad you could play along with us at Just Add Ink this week 🙂

  14. A great card Andrea, love the banner behind, and the blues (trying to get out of reds and greens though find it hard 🙂 ) I like the gold pearl addition, wouldn’t have thought to use gold but it all works just nicely, hugs Melxx
