Happy Thursday everybody!
Can you believe it's time for a new challenge over at Some Odd Girl already? There is a great sketch to follow this time around that you can dress up or dress down to create a card that is as CAS or as embellished as you like... it really lends itself to multiple styles very easily. :)
For my take on the sketch, I chose to use the adorable new Penguin Love Tia. And because she is a digital image I was able to flip her to face the opposite direction before printing her out. This way I could place her on the card where the sketch dictated but also still have her eye line leading directly back at the sentiment... which is always a good thing. What can I say... I'm a bit OCD about stuff like that! LOL
And can you believe I skipped using any Christmas papers on this card? Instead I opted to raid one of my paper scrap bags and came up with this funky combo of prints and colors. The kinda monochromatic look was needing a pop of contrast so I colored her hair a nice auburn red and added a burgundy ribbon to the card as well. And I've gotta say that once the red was on there I really became quite pleased with this combo for a winter/Christmas card. I think it looks a bit modern and different.
Okey dokey, so now it's time for you to get inspired and show us your take on the sketch! You've got until October 18th to enter a card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do. :)
