This week's PPA challenge is to find inspiration in the given photo for a card of your own. To me the photo (which, once again Blogger will not allowe me to include) is elegant and refined and I noticed the lovely color combo of plum, gold and vanilla and white. I tried to mimic both the feel and the colors in this Christmas card. Also, the Just Add Ink challenge theme this week is Christmas.
The shimmery white cardstock layer was embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder then punched through with the ornament punch. The Rich Razzleberry layer was also punched with the ornament punch. I added a snowflake and gold glimmer brad on the inside to show through the ornament "window". My final details were added with some white organza ribbon, narrow Rich Razzleberry ribbon, gold cord and some gold embossing powder. The gold embossing powder was easy to apply just in specific areas by using the fine tip of the Versamarker!
My photo isn't the best, although I tried believe me, but the shimmer is really pretty in real life.
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you are staying warm wherever you are!
