FFC40 - Mid-challenge Inspiration


Here's my mid-challenge card for the current Festive Friday challenge, where our inspiration photo is this lovely shimmery pink scene:



I focused on the shimmer and colours - I used my Frantic Stamper tree dies and a beautifully ornate sentiment from Waltzingmouse, embossed in silver on vellum. To attach the vellum, I used a trick I learned from a Jennifer McGuire video - I put glue behind the elements that were glued to or embossed on the vellum. This resulted in some warping, as you can see, but it has since settled down.

The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday September 24 at midnight - see you then!

You knocked this challenge out the park Ardyth! I love, love this pink shimmer card. Those trees look amazing as does the embossed sentiment. I love that you did it all on vellum, which really gives the "frosty, shimmery" look to this. Awesome! Hugs, Brenda
