Even if your card has been chosen for the “Pretty Paper” you are still eligible for the other prizes.

My pick for the Highlighted was Connie's entry. The beautiful shadow box card used MMSC #28's sketch and I just love all the little details Connie added such as the distressing ink, the crackle accents, etc.



Connie, even your card was chosen, you will need to participate in the Blog Hop to have your name put in a drawing for a special prize at the end of the Hop.

This week's sketch


Our Monthly Sponsor for December is Frantic Stamper

MY BLOG HOP PROJECTS
Here is the picture for the 3 pieces projects I came up with for this blog hop. You can scroll down to for more pictures.


Here is the view of this winter wonderland card I made using this week's sketch.


Closer view on the coloring. I airbrushed the sky and colored the rest using Copic.


I took pictures side way and when it was laid, so you can see the dimension of the card.


I laid the card flat so you can see the dimension for this.


Inside view of the card.


Front & back view of the pillow box.



Chipboard Ornament. I stamped the same image on an acetate/plastic and paper. On the plastic, I only appled stickles on the tree. I colored the image on the paper with Copic markers. At the end, just layed them both on top of each other (plastic & white cardtock), then adhered both at the bottom of the flower shape chipboard. I painted the chipboard with shimmerz and added stickle.


Please leave a comment on each design team members blogs and you will be entered to win one of the design team projects!
