SOTC-December

Hi all, today I am going to post my card for the monthly sisterhood swap I am in...I love this creative group of ladies and have had so much fun with them..Donna is the hostess this month and she chose Color Splash as a theme or using your favorite color combo. Color splash is using the same color in different hues. Although, I looked it up on line and found a couple different variations and techniques...(and actually tried one but failed miserably..) I chose to use my favorite color combo...anyone who knows me, knows I love glitter, and the black and white combo....so guess which color combo I chose...heehee...I know, I know...easy question...





I decided to ink up my grunged flower from The Rummage Bin at Cornish Heritage Farms and use that as my focal point. I used cool gray copics to fill in and shadow the flower and yellow and yellow-red copics for the center. I also added a few dabs of black stickles in the center of the flower to add a little texture and of course shine. My card base is SU basic black with the retired SU polka dot background embossed on it. I used a MS punch for the bottom of the card and tied a satin ribbon around the card, I placed a yellow rhinestone in the middle of the knot to finish off the card. It looks better in real life but I am happy with how it turned out....

Thanks for stopping by....
Hugs,
Carol

Oh Carol! You are a master crafter! Your cards are pure delights and this one is no exception! (btw, I must THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for the lil sample cards - the Thank You card bailed me out in a jam on Christmas day when our mailman showed up 3 hours early! And I sooo wanted to CASE that card, lol!) This card just exemplifies all the wonders you put into your card making - the design, fabulous paper, the flower!! So much WOW factor - Have a blessed New Year, my friend ... You are one of my greatest treasures :) xoxo

Really pretty card, Carol. I love the colors and the punch at the bottom with the cream layer underneath.
