Crafty Creations Challenges #292

Are you ready for some Red, White and Blue?  
That's the challenge theme for the next two weeks at Crafty Creations Challenges.  Actually, you can use all three colors or any combination of the three. 

We're sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs and I used one of their images ~ Wonky Christmas Tree.

And since I love anything Patriotic, I had to use all three colors on my card.  Not your traditional Christmas Card, but I love how it all came together.

Be sure to swing on over to Crafty Creations Challenges to see what the other DT members created today.

If you want to, you can stop reading because you have all the information regarding this challenge, right?

However, I have a confession to make. I somehow forgot that this Challenge was a Red, White and/or Blue theme from the time I printed the digi image to when I grabbed it off the printer (all of about 3 seconds; I'm not sure how that happened, but it did).  

So I grabbed my Copics, found some great cardstock and DSP that looked great with the "Wonky Christmas Tree" digi and I went to town.  

I loved the colors, loved how the dots in the DSP mimicked the dots in the tree.  Until I realized that nothing on this card went with the Challenge theme.

Thank goodness I printed 2 images ... and since I liked the layout, I decided to CASE my own card. The second one went together much quicker than the first...I wonder why?

So, here's my "first" card with all it's colors and sparkle. 

And, here are the two cards together.  On a positive note, at least I now have two more Christmas cards completed.

  1. I'm chuckling that you would take these patriotic colours and make a Christmas card. :D That's probably what I would do. Both these cards are great!


Thank you for commenting. Your words of encouragement keep me 'crafting.'
