The last ABC challenge my card was in the top five and I was honoured to be asked if I would like to be their guest designer for December. Whilst a little scary (being fairly new to blogging and I've not done it before) it was also very exciting.
The title of my first GDT spot was to create something for the theme Y is for YULETIDE sponsored by Paper Shelter. The image I've I used is Hope. I've coloured it with ProMarkers, added a touch of glitter to the star and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.
There's a mix of layered papers which I've distressed from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road (Timeless Victorian), First Edition (Gilded Winter) and Lili of the Valley/Nitwits (Solids - Always and Forever).
Before I mounted the diecut image I added some organza ribbon from The Ribbon Girl with a handtied bow. I also added a square Yuletide Festival handwritten sign which was cut with a Spellbinders die and age distressed with a brown ProMarker believe it or not.
In the flower arrangements there are some roses and paper leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts. There are some velvet finish holly leaves, pearl and crystal branches, red and white beaded berries, ivory pearlised pins, a resin dove and a resin flower all from The Ribbon Girl.
The finishing touch are some pearlised self adhesive gems. Phew - this is most complicated card I've ever made :) Hope the team at ABC Challenge love what I made and hope you all like her too.
