SC 049/12....

.... and non-traditional Christmas Colours.

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been given to us by Gwen.  What a great challenge this week - the possibilities are endless.  We have to use Circles on our project this week.  Why not pop over & check out what Kris & Gwen have created & then join us.  We would really love for you to link your project with Mr Linky!

Measurements -
Base Card - Concord Crush - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm - Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 - Whisper White - 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" or 14cm x 9 1/2"

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Baroque Motifs, Circle Circus, Short & Sweet
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Concord Crush
Cardstock - Whisper White, Concord Crush
Punches - Itty Bitty Shapes, 3/4" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle
Accessories - Rhinestones, Stampin' Up! Markers - Tangerine Tango, Concord Crush, Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals

 I stamped the large image from Barquoe Motifs in Pear Pizzazz straight onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

3 images from Circles Circus were stamped direct onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock - 2 with Tangerine Tango & 1 in Concord Crush.  3 of the larger image was also stamped onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Cardstock - 2 in Concord Crush & the other in Tangerine Tango.

I punched one of the stamped Concord Crush images using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, while the 2nd image was punched with the small Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes set.  The Tangerine Tango image was punched using the 3/4" Circle Punch.

The punched images were then adhered to the main image on the card & built using Stamping' Dimensionals

The lines were drawn with a Ruler & Stampin' Up! Markers - Tangerine Tango & Concord Crush.

Prior to stamping the smallest image from the Circle Circus Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight ink, I stamped the sentiment in Concord Crush straight onto the Whisper White Card.

I had all intensions of just adding the Rhinestone to the middle of one of the images, but to add more depth to the card, I scattered the Rhinestones around the card.  I think it adds a little bit of a sparkle & finishes it off a little.

As always, this isn't how I pictured my card to be, but I am quiet happy with the final result. What do you think?

Until next time, Have a great day!

Vicky, your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love that your non-traditional colours have created a really pretty and very Christmassy Christmas card. The addition of the rhinestones really does add to the Christmas feel. Your take on the challenge is really stunning.
