I'm running late with this challenge but finally finished the card at 3:20am.  I had this idea of  a pearls Christmas tree and this was my opportunity to create it.  I used Night of Navy but I think it would look nice in Marina Mist or Island Indigo, what do you think?  Enjoy!

4 You

The idea for this card just popped and before I knew it, it was done. Although it is a simple card, the sketch gave it structure and the colors gave it life. I think the design on the paper makes it masculine which is why I didn't add "bling-bling." I will make a more feminine one and see what I come up with. Enjoy!

Photo Card

I found this idea on a blog and came up with my own measurements to fit an A2 envelope.  This is such a cute way of giving pictures to family and friends. I did a class with it and everyone loved it. It can hold 5 pictures or you can leave some space for writing or decorating like I did.  If you want to create this cutie, feel free to email me at scrapbooktherapy@gmail.com. Enjoy!

Let It Snow

The Paper Players and Pals Paper Arts challenges were a good combination for me, both the colors and the sketch were perfect for the card I created.  The new SU shaker frames are very handy and easy to use. I just wish the sizes were better.  I used some puffy paint to give it more of a snow look on the roof and the trees.  Hope you will find this a fun card to create.  Enjoy!

PPA 119

The black in the inspiration for this card added an interesting twist to the commonly used Christmas colors. The black anchors the card while the pine background gives it a soft feel. I made the poinsettia using the 'Joy of the Season' Cricut cartridge and a technique my friend Antonieta found in a tutorial. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io22J7FeF9k&feature=related 
I will be making many more of this flower. Enjoy!
