A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope you have all had a marvelous weekend and are ready for an even better week! It has been a bit chilly in these mountains but this week is supposed to be a bit warmer. At least most of the leaves have fallen and are all raked and removed!!! That's a good thing for this time of year!!!
For this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge our theme is A Traditional Christmas and we would love to see all of your creations to see how you interpret the theme. As always there is a wonderful surprise from the lovely people at Wild Orchid Crafts. So come on over and join in with us!!!! We can't wait to see you!!
For my card I used a Victorian print which amazingly matches the Inkido papers on the inside of my card!!!!! The base of the card is Bazzill, the double matting is Curious Metallic Gold Leaf and PTI, and the DP on the front is from BBP Believe and the inside is Inkido Coming Home for Christmas. All of the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The image is resting on a Paper Doily and for the horizontal I used 1/2" Satin Ribbon tied into a double flat bow to hold a Miniature Silver Ringing Bell dangled from a 1/4" Satin Ribbon. The flowers, resting on Holly Leaves, are Trellis Rose, Classic Sweet Roses, Curly Wild Roses, Closed Rosebuds, and Rose Cabochons. Finally I added a Silver Decorative Metal Corner and a Wooden Christmas Tree.
And on the first panel on the inside just more of the Wooden Christmas Embellishments dangling along a satin ribbon with bow....and on the jotting panel nothing but the gorgeous DP with images that match the image on the front of the card!!!!! Can you believe it????
What about a surprise SWEET STUFF of FLOWERS and RIBBONS???? I have put together a selection of all kinds of flowers and organza ribbon which I think you would love to have although I didn't take a picture! Sometimes the fun is not knowing what the surprise is...smiles!!! All you have to do is give your info with the little Blue Froggy before Wednesday morning, November 14 at 8 AM EST to be in for the draw!!! Good Luck!!!
Thank you so very much for coming by today and I hope you will want to come by often!! Have a delightful week and, until the next time, I send big hugs to all of you!!!
