I'm going Challenge CRAZY!!

Ok, someone might need to call the authorities because I am going challenge crazy lately. Someone might need to tell me -- 'Stop, put your hands up and step away from the challenge blogs!' I know I am preaching to the choir with some of you... so.. how about a little enabling instead? ;-)

I only had a short time Tuesday to create, so I wanted to make it count! So, this little card below is actually for two challenges -- Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge,which was to create a one layer card. And, second, for Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge! For the Christmas Spirit challenge, you were supposed to use this photo as your inspiration....


And so... off I went. I really loved the bits of silver and pop of red. And, so.... here goes!
I really loved the bits of silver and pops of red in the photo and so.. that's what I picked up on! Marry that with the one layer challenge and that's what you get! I have to say, this is one of -- if not the only -- one layer card I've created in my 10-plus years of stamping. I've always been afraid! :-)

The details are rather simple. I stamped the word Rejoice, it's from a discontinued Flourishes set in Versamark ink, embossed with silver detail embossing powder and then colored my image with Copic Markers -- R29, R59, YG99 and G85. I did outline my image with B0000 to give it a softer look. Add a bit of bling and some great two tone May Arts ribbon and... voila! A ten minute creation to add to my Christmas Card stash!!

Be sure to check out both challenges because there are some prizes on the line! Just click the links above.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with -- YES-- another challenge! :-) Tomorrow, the gals from IO are ushering in a fun one, so stay tuned!
