I made this card for two challenges. In the Queen for the Day challenge, Trish selected Taylor Usry (stagccva). She has a wonderful gallery with such a wide variety!!! So many wonderful, fun, pretty, cute...all kinds of lovelies!! I was inspired by her ornament: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=96315
Now, I did not make an ornament, but I think you can see how her lovely pink ornament inspired my card.
In the Free 4 All challenge, we were not allowed to use scissors. Luckily for me, I have my cricut and big kick, so I really didn't have too many problems. (yahoo!)
First I used the Spellbinders oval with the beads on white cardstock. Then I used a regular oval to cut out the center. Next I cut a piece of vellum with the plain oval die. Then I cut out two more ovals, one blue for my background and one white for the back. At that point I wasn't sure if I would be making the ornament or a card.
For the owl, I used the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge. Then I used the Joys of the Season cartridge to make some trees. Then I adhered it together with glue dots and mounting sqares. If I would have tried for the ornament, I would have had to use scissors. (Oh I am such a good girl!) lol
Lastly, some silver Dazzels and some white pearls for trimming.
Both were wonderful challenges for me, thank you Trish and thank you Dawn!!!
