Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge - A Recipe

It's time for a new Designer's Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions - where one of the  Design Team members comes up with the theme and the other Rock Stars - and YOU - create your cards accordingly. Today it's my turn:) I have chosen a "recipe" for you to follow. My challenge is to use one image, one sentiment, two die cuts or punches, and three embellishments. We'd love to have you join in! One random participant for the month will win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of their choice. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details and to see the wonderful creations. Or follow these links to the other Rock Stars' blogs:

For my card, I used: image - 3805-J Winter's Eve, sentiment - 1141-F Christmas, die cuts - Lacey Squares and Fancy Tags, embellishments - Stickles, pearls, star (flower?) brad. I stamped my image with Stampin' Up!'s Brocade Blue, and the matting is also Brocade Blue. I used Stickles on the white area of the image. I embossed a piece of white for the right side of the card with a Snowflakes Cuttlebug folder, and then added a thin strip of the same blue. I colored the pearls with a Copic marker to match the blue matting.


We'd love to have you join us! You also have nearly a week to participate in the latest WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. See the details for that challenge here.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
