Well there were some fabulous cards entered for our 'Use a Poem' challenge, with so many different types of poems, some funny, some profound.... why don't you hop over to our challenge blog and see if you were a winner?? It was lovely to see all those cards entered, as it was my first challenge on the Design Team.
Now here we are again with another fab challenge.... this time it's 'So Charming'.... and you have to use a charm somewhere on your card. Sooooooo I chose Sketchy Snowman from Digi Stamp Boutique - just because he's been very patient waiting for me to colour him..... I also dry embossed him to make him look more round (well we can't have a FLAT snowman - can we?) I then coloured him with copic/promarkers and decoupaged him onto a square cut with a nestie and sponged with pale blue shadow ink while the nestie was still in place to give the frame, and used another scalloped square nestie for the base.
The Clipart Fairy - Let it Snow (methinks the snowman is thinking the same.... hehe). The ribbon is american seam binding, and the charm I bought at The Hobby House on my recent trip there... (hmmm I HAVE been spending recently haven't I - oooops!) and it's hanging on some eyelash wool I've had in forever! There is an MS Snowflake border punch hiding there too.. I added a couple of gems and some glitter and stickles (obviously!!), then the fab sentiment is from Lynne over at Sentiments 4 you - and as Lynne is sponsoring our challenge this time you could win a lovely gift certificate to spend in her shop Crafts-4-You!
Why don't you hop over to the Die Cut Dreams blog to my lovely teamies to see their wonderful creations - then join in! I really look forward to seeing your charming creations.. And don't forget that the Die Cut Dreams shop site will be opening up again at the beginning of November...
Big Hugs and Happy Crafting..
