Awesome Design Challenge Card by Regina Alber!

Regina played along with our design challenge again.  Look at her adorable reindeer card.  I love this image.   Isn't this a cute card?  I love that she covered the white space with speckles of red ink.  I also love that she off-set the green frame behind the reindeer image.  I'll have to do that more as I really like the way that looks!  The Ho Ho Ho ribbon is just so cute too.

Regina spielte zusammen mit unserem design Herausforderung erneut stellen. Sehen Sie ihr adorable wild card. Ich liebe dieses Bild. Ist das nicht eine süße Karte? Ich liebe, die sie deckte die weißer Raum mit sprenkelung der roten Tinte. Ich liebe es auch, dass sie die grünen Rahmen hinter den rentieren Bild. Ich werde zu tun haben, dass mehr als die Art und Weise, wie ich wirklich aussehen! Der Ho Ho Ho ribbon ist einfach so süß.

December Design Challenge Cards - Merry Christmas Everyone!

Well, here we are - Christmas day!  Merry Christmas to everyone.  I hope Santa has been good to you all :)  I'll find out in a bit ;)

Here was the design challenge sketch and colors:

This first card is mine.  I think when I was making the sketch, I was thinking of a Christmas ornament.  How can you not, right?  Well, I was trying to use stamps/sets I haven't used before.  I don't care for the Build-a-Bear bears, but loved the Christmas accessory stamps.  I've been wanting to use it since I got it!  I just got this adorable little polar bear stamp and thought it would be the perfect match to the tree and sentiment.  I din't want to use too much of the colors on him and the tree - just added some marker to the hearts and scarf.

Next, we have Michelle's beautiful card.  Again, she did such a great job!  I love the sentiment and then the matching ornament hanging below with that great string.  She also spritzed the card to get rid of a lot of white area.  I just love this card - very merry indeed!  What a joy it is to receive a Michelle Arthur card :)

Thanks for looking and I wish you all a very merry day and a Happy New Year!  Michelle, Debbie, and I will be back with new challenges next month.  Please join us!  We'd love for you to create with us.
