We didn't get any new snow yesterday thank goodness, though they are forecasting more to fall later tonight. Ugh, it may be pretty to look at but snow certainly makes going out and doing anything a total hassle. Like going to a movie... I was really hoping to see The Hobbit this weekend but considering I'd have to drive 45 minutes in good weather to get to the theater I'm not really motivated to make the drive now with all the snow. Moan and whine, LOL! I'll survive. ;)
I made my card today for the December SOG sketch challenge. Pretty miss Angel Gwen was already stamped and waiting on my desk so it was her turn to get colored up. I loved the muted tones of this Lost & Found Christmas paper and I wanted to give Gwen the same rich and elegant tones. The touches of gold, cream and deep red do the trick if you ask me. :)
I stayed very faithful to the original sketch because I liked how the layers of banners allowed for a bunch of different patterns to be added without really crowding the overall design. It doesn't show up great in the photo but the sentiment is stamped on a pretty, shimmery gold paper that helps tie all those prints together. And because I felt there was a lot going on in the papers I kept the embellishing to a minimum... just a single fancy brad was all it needed.
Alrighty, I'm gonna scoot and see what kind of trouble I can get myself into today.
Have a good one!
