I Hope Your Holiday Sparkles–C4C #205


Hi, there, everyone! It’s that craaaaaazy time of the week: Crazy 4 Challenges time! This week the challenge is to use bows on your card or project. Another easy peasy challenge, right?

I decided to make another Christmas card for this challenge. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped a peppermint stripe on some more Sweet Tooth card stock with Wild Cherry ink using Plaid Builder Background. I matted a piece of that with Wild Cherry ink and popped it up on foam, after stamping the sentiment, from a’ la modes Sparkling Season with Steel Gray ink.

Then I cut three Die-namics Dainty Bows from red glitter paper, assembled them and popped them up on foam. To finish it off, I added some clear gems for accent.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C205.
