Happy day after Christmas! I hope that Santa was good to you all, he was very good to me! The best part of the holiday is spending time with family and friends. I had a nice relaxing day and still found some time to craft a little and watch a movie. With Christmas over I can;t believe that year is almost over. I think it went really fast, how about you? In the blink pf an eye it will be 2013, thankfully the Mayans were wrong!
Today I have my post for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge. This week we have a sketch/color challenge. You can do just the sketch or both, this week I did both. The colors are Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard and Crumb Cake and here is the sketch…
You all know how I feel about flags… love them! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. For the background I stamped a piece of Crumb Cake with the Parlor Prints Background Stamp in Crumb Cake. The flagged piece is Bravo Burgundy and I embossed it with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The greeting is from the Amazing Family Stamp Set* and is stamped in Bravo Burgundy. The “ribbon” strip is More Mustard and I stamped it in More Mustard with the Travel Journal Builder Wheel. For the embellishment I used a Soda Pop Top* and stamped some images from the Collage Curios Stamp Set* in Crumb Cake and Bravo Burgundy. The image is punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch and adhered to the inside of the Soda Pop Top* with some Multipurpose Glue. I backed it with a piece of More Mustard that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies* and mounted them to each other with some Mini Glue Dots and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the way that all of the elements coordinate together and give the card a slightly vintage look. I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge. Don’t forget to submit your projects for me to see! Thank you so much for your time and I hope that you all have a fantastic day! 🙂

What a great card; I love the color combination-one of the few times I have liked More Mustard! Isn’t that fancy fan folder a terrific design? Love it. And yes, you are right, this has been one of the “fastest” years ever! As always, thanks for the inspiration. Keep making beautiful art!
Thank you so much Georgia! Yes, that Fancy Fan is great! Glad I’m not the only one that thinks the year went quick. I hope that you have a great day! 🙂
