Leave your comfort zone...Yikes that's scary!
Today at notimetostamp# 102 is to leave your comfort zone....Wow that's a toughie!
Well I don't really have a true "comfort" zone, so I decided to do something out of the box. Have you ever seen a brownish Christmas card??? Well, me neither. But, I said " Oh heck, this Crafty Secrets cotton scrap is just too lovely not to figure something out for its use! Soooo....I made a brownish-tone Christmas card and you know what? I like it a lot. It's different and I think quite classy to boot. I love the phrase and the Santa is so bee-utiful for a guy. It's puzzling to me that it looks like he's got a bow and arrow over his shoulder and I'm kinda worried because you know I've been bad so I'm probably in big trouble. Help! I'll try to be a good girl, I promise.
I've used my Nestie's fancy rectangle on both my image and mat which is out of a lovely gold card stock and then I matted on a soft brown tone piece before placing on my white card that I distressed with a few colors of chalk and made a ruffled edge. My ribbon is from Mike's place and my bow done with none other then the fantabulous Bow Easy. Gosh I love that little thing a majig now that I finally can do it. And to end my card, I had to add some bling that I self colored in a brownish tone.Those Sharpie pens color up those jewels really nice. To see what the other ladies did please see the list below with their links....Great Stampers each and everyone of them!
