The Challenge #18 - Christmas Wishes

Hello Everyone!!

Today I'm thrilled to announce that I've been asked to be the November Guest Designer for The Challenge.  This super fun challenge is hosted by my sweet & very talented friend, Lesley Croghan. Lesley has brought us some fabulous challenges and I even had the honor of being on the Seize the Birthday design team.  Thank you, Lesley for inviting me!!

The Challenge gives us the opportunity to use the Sketch, the Colours, or Both.  It's your CHOICE!!   As you can see I was inspired by both for my card.  I used some of the NEW Christmas stamps and dies from WPlus9.

Paper: White CS (Recollections, 110Ib), Brown CS (Bazzill), Crumb Cake CS (SU!), Home for the Holidays 6x6 (Echo Park); Stamps: Hand Lettered Holiday (WPlus9); Ink: Cranberry Crisp (SU!); Tools: Stag Trio Die (WPlus9), Classic Petite Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Scor-Buddy; Other: Seam Binding (SU!), Hemp Twine Cord (Hemptique), Rhinestone, ATG Tape, Foam Tape 

You can use the SKETCH, the COLOURS, or BOTH!!

Make sure to head over to Always Playing with Paper for all the challenge deets.

Happy Stamping!!

  4. I love this card, Sheri. I am so tempted to buy that deer die and you have used it so beautifully! The background paper with text is a fabulous addition to your card, too. (and the bow, of course)

  5. Fabulous card! The deer with his hind legs off the oval really adds extra interest. Such a clean card with so many details.

  6. I LOVE this card, Sheri! I just ordered this deer die. Congrats on being Guest Designer for The Challenge! :)

  7. Fabulous card, I love the papers you used and that pretty bow.

  8. Sheri, this is wonderful! Love what you've done and congrats on being the Guestie over at The Challenge!

  9. Love your card. Great colors and a nice sketch.

  10. Hi Sheri,

    Though you used great finesse with the color theme, I think your bow totally "makes" your card. Having the sentiment paper to bracket the reindeer in the middle, therefore drawing your eye in as the center of focus was clever!

    Thanks for such a lovely inspiration.


  11. Gorgeous Christmas card! Love the elegant look with your deer, pretty designer paper and lovely bow.

  12. You reindeer card is a perfect example for this challenge! Everything coordinates perfectly....I love it! Thanks for the inspiration!
