MERRY-SSC88 and FM185

November 9, 2014

It is a beautiful sunny day in GA.  I decided to be very lazy today.  I am staying home all day and just doing things around the house.  I love days like that.  I did sneak in my craft room for a few minutes.  I wanted to make a card for The Friday Mashup and use the fabulous sketch at the Sunday Stamps Challenge.

The Friday Mashup called for the colors, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green and mash it up by covering your image in Diamond Dust.  I adore these regal colors and bling, so I had to play along!  

Make sure to stop by both Design Teams blog's for lots of inspiration! 

I am still adding to my Christmas card stash, so I decided to use these non-tradional colors to make a fun shaker card.  I stamped the ornament and then added the diamond dust all over the image.  After it dried, I added the window sheet and sequins to make it really shine!

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!

If you have any questions on my card or Stampin' Up! , please contact me at: Claire.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Happy Stampin'!

I used two retired stamps sets for the sentiments: Christmas Messages and A Banner Christmas.  The ornament is from the retired set: Ornament Keepsakes.
