Wee Memories Holiday Music Inspiration & PPA Challenges

Friday, December 10, 2010

 Friday is HERE!!!! I am so happy the weekend is about to begin...I have another extended weekend and I am SOOOO glad! Work has been rough lately, so it will be nice to have some extra relaxing craft time...and of course finish my Christmas shopping! :-)

Today I have a card to share with you for both the Wee Memories Holiday Music Inspiration Challenge and the Pals Paper Arts Fashion Inspiration Challenge. I thought it was so clever to use a holiday song as the inspiration for a card! I had a bunch of ideas for it, and ended up with the card below, using White Christmas as the inspiration--perfect for the 'winter whites' in the PPA photo. I absolutely LOVE color, so an all white card for me is quite a change! But, I really love it! As you all probably know, pictures sometimes just don't do the card justice....especially in this case. I added Stickles to select areas of the embossed design (click on picture to see more detail), but it sure doesn't show the fun intensity of the *sparkle* that appears in bright light. It reminds me of fresh fluffy snow when it first falls. DeNami Design is sponsoring the Wee Memories challenge, so if you participate, you'll have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! There is a mystery prize for the PPA challenge, so you might want to check that one out too! I want to thank you for visiting my blog, and I would love to hear your thoughts about my creation for these challenges. Have a great weekend everyone!
