Today I am bringing you a card that was inspired by two different challenges.
I loved the sketch over at Sketch Saturday but I put my own spin on it which you’ll see in a minute,
and I also loved the colour combination used by the Color Throwdown Challenge
I thought I haven’t really used teal with red and green for a Christmas card so this is what set this card creation in motion.
And this is the end result of everything above being put together
As you can see with the sketch I extended the bottom part because I didn’t have any square cardstock in my possession. (I hope that changing the sketch like this was OK, if not I understand my card being removed from the challenge) The reason I don’t have any spare cardboard for bases is because I have cut up my A4 cardstock into pre-prepared card bases to help with my crafting time – but I am going to buy a pack of square card bases so that I can have some on hand for these challenges.
But I was lucky to have some teal patterned Christmas paper in my stash. It’s actually been sitting in there for about 3 Christmases now so I’m glad to be using it. I bought it because I loved the pattern on the paper but when I got it home I realized it didn’t suit anything else that I already owned.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation. And now I would like to leave you with a thought before you leave:
This has several meanings for me at the moment. I can see the steps that I have been taking are bringing me closer to my goal. I also realize that I have a long journey in front of me still but I am progressing.
Have a Happy Crafty Fun kind of Day
