Yes, that's correct. It is Jingle Belles 37. I was so busy last week that I missed a day and totally missed the deadline to get my card in. Well, to be honest, it wasn't even done, but the challenge was pretty straightforward and....... well, no more excuses. I'm posting this today before I run out of time again (as I'm staying late at work yet again!).
"make a freestanding (2.5 x 3.5") xmas-themed Artist Trading Card
add an ATC-sized element to your holiday card
incorporate a playing card into your design
use a recycled xmas card (or an element from
one!) on your (newly made) holiday card!"
I had purchased some ATC watercolor blanks over the summer - for what I do not know - so I scrounged around and found them - lucky for me - and used an image from a stamp that I had recently purchased at a stamp store I visited recently. (I'm a sucker for bird images you know!)
Then, feeling in a dreary mood (from the week I was having last week) I decided to go really out of the box and use some "different" holiday colors. Well, really only one unique color - yellow!
Do you like it? I know it's out there a little, but I just got a book from one of those book thingy's that sends you a Christmas book each year and one of the featured sections was Christmas in Yellow, White, and I think Gray. Not what I would choose, as yellow doesn't happen to be one of my favorites, but I think it worked for this card based on the background paper.
Okay, maybe I'll be back to add more rambling on to this, but I've got to get going and finish up.
