Challenge Complete!


I am pleased to say that my 16 card challenge is complete :) I even plan on making a few extra! Some of the cards I have made are Christmas cards to send out this year, some are for submission calls & some are for a gift set. 

It's certainly got my mojo flowing which is good & it has also made me utilise a few of this stamps that often get neglected! 

Anyway, on to my card for today! I have one more card for the APPT Challenge HERE.

This card of Nichole's inspired me to get a start on my Christmas cards for this year. Though I think the set she has used on this card has a lot of potential it will probably not be in my shopping cart today as there is SO much more from the current release I would like!

The colour combination is one that I wouldn't normally use for a Christmas card, but it looks nice & contemporary. I used Tree Trimming Trio for the sentiment & Holiday Tags 2010. My card hasn't quite got the distressed feel like Nichole's but I like how it turned out.

You can just about see the Prisma Glitter I added to the Snowflakes on this photo. It's certainly added some Christmas Magic to the card!

I'm off to make a couple more cards before I make my shopping decisions before dinner this afternoon at the MIL.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh what a great start to your Christmas cards! I love that colour combo too (and yup, way too much from the recent release that I'm trying to tear myself away from LOL!)

This was one of my favourites creations from the last release - love the unusual colour combo and love how you thought to reach for the tags set - must have a go at that myself!

Thanks for joining in at APFP.
