Cupcake Craft Challenge 8

Hello again, it's been a gorgeous day, not that I've been out, too busy getting this card finished in time for the Cupcake Challenge dead line. But I did get it finished and I got some decent light to take some photo's of my card, so here it is...


















I took two photo's one with the flash one without as certain elements, colours show up better under different lights. The card was made up from one designer company called Elusive Images.
The backing paper was from their Artylicious Season's Greetings CD-ROM . It wasn't quite dark enough for me, so I put it through my trusty graphics program and made it darker, then printed it onto hessian card and then sponged with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad. The oval and circles were made using Nestabilities classics and scallops. The holly design on them is from Elusive Images Christmas Flourish rubber stamp themeplate set, which was stamped using Versfine Olympic Green ink pad. The swirls were highlighted with a gold gel pen and the berries have Stickles Xmas red splodged on. They were then all mounted onto gold silk mirri card scallops. The green panel is just some dark green linen card with another stamp from Christmas Flourish stamp set using Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad and again sponged round the edges. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the same gold ink pad. The ribbon is just from my stash. I like this card, but the photo's are a bit yuk. The gold sponging round the edge of the backing paper isn't that bold in real life, but hey ho I can only apologise for my bad photography :(
Anyway thank you for dropping by hope you like my version of the challenge.

Take care & keep smiling
