So Much Rolled in to One


The Atelier has been really a buzz all week.  Flourishes released 2 of the 3 new sets for October…and it has been such fun.  Add to this the fact that I had endodontic surgery so my left cheek looks like a ping pong ball is lodged there!  Not  painful enough to stop me from having some fun creating.

The challenges on SCS this week were great…Color Challenge 134 used Chocolate Chip, Bayou Blue, and Sahara Sand and the WT101 called for twill.  This week at  Card Positioning System, http://www.cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com,  I found this  great sketch challenge. I rolled it all into one, using the reindeer from the newly released Flourished Christmas set by Flourishes,llc (www.flourishes.org) for my central focus  and Viola!

All this seemed to work for me and with a little Basic Grey-Blitzen collection I was set.  This card is for my nephew’s birthday that is coming up soon.  He loves animals and 13 year old boys are hard to make cards for, but on this one I may have hit the mark.  It has the hardware thing going on, the punch out that I hand lettered and the twill is just perfect for a boy.

Now from this point it doesn’t look like a Christmas card to me, so I’m thinking this reindeer may be quite useful here in the Atelier.

Thanks for stopping in today.
