Felicita's challenge for this week at TicTacToe Challenge is perfect for making a Thanksgiving card for someone in your family or to send to a friend.  I went across the bottom with rust, any color and gold foil.

I dug out an old Concord & 9th turnabout and had some fun with rust, blue and gray.  After trimming down my panel, I added a rust mat and then onto a blue card base.  The sentiment is from another old C & 9th set and die cut it from some gold foil cs.  A few gold sequins here and there completed my card.

Would love to see your card in our gallery this week!  Come join us for a chance to be a future guest designer.  Crafty hugs,

Elizabeth, our newest design team member, designed the board for this week's TicTacToe Challenge #186.  I went down the middle with red, sparkle and holly.

I started by gold embossing holly leaves all around the edges of a piece of dark red cardstock.  Stamped the sentiment and also gold embossed. Using some distress inks, I blended in toward the middle with darker reds.  Added red Nuvo drops onto the berries and then some extra sparkle with gold sequins.  Finally I sprayed the whole thing with some glimmer mist.  Sorry the photo looks blurred - I think it's the glimmer spray at fault! or maybe my poor photography skills!!!

Hope to see your entry in our challenge this week - great way to add another Christmas card to your stash!

 A special order wedding card - looks rather simple but took me forever to make - mainly 'cause I kept messing up stamping the names.

I used Concord & 9th's Sophisticated Script and the daisy embossing folder from Altenew.  I did the stamping first and then embossed.

Thanks for stopping by.
