Using yesterday's Twinkling H2Os technique, I made a background that simply screamed for a collage-style Christmas card.
So that's what I made.
I couldn't get a picture of yesterday's card that showed the pretty shimmer, but for today, I do have a close-up. The colors are a bit off from real life (not so pink, more of a red), but you at least can see the shimmery effect.
The card is 5" square that will fit some ready-made square envelopes I have. The words are taken from various sets, including Mark's Finest and Ali Edwards (Technique Tuesday). The snowflakes and tree are from Hero Arts.
If you're looking for an unofficial challenge this week, consider making a similar collage card yourself. It's fun to play around with a different look every now and then, and you can still challenge yourself to keep it simple with limited layers and no embellishments, as I've done here.
Must say I'm enjoying my vacation. Just wish I could get some decent pictures of the many bald eagles flying around the lake. It's so wonderful to see them soaring over the cabin and teaching a juvenile to fish. If you're at all interested, I'm posting a few vacation pics on my other blog.
