Over on the CAS - Colours and Sketches blog they have this colour challenge. I've been using a lot of red and gold lately with my cards but I've never used vanilla. It stumped me a little but I found a 6x6 xmas pad that was filled with red and vanilla colours, so it got my ideas flowing straight away.
I found this gorgeous vanilla coloured paper and adhered it to the card front, leaving a white border around the outside. After die-cutting the circle, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold. I then glued the die-cut 'joy' above it. Foam tape was used on the back of the circle. I added a gold sequin as the dot for the joy and a few more for good luck.
The CAS- Colours and Sketches team are also having a DT Call so I've decided to have a go and apply. This means I will also need to join each challenge this month as part of the application, so you'll be seeing a few more of these posts.
The patterned papers are from Studio Calico 'Magical Collection'. The 'joy' die and sentiment stamp are from WPlus9 'Hand lettered holiday'. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled.
As I've used gold on this card I'll link this to the Virginia's View Challenge # 9, this is my fourth entry. Their theme is:
She sent three beautiful gift bags filled with Candy Corn and one large bag of Starburst Candy Corn which is fruit flavoured. They are all so yummy and I never thought it would taste like fudge! Phoebe has taken some to school today to share with her best friend. I've hidden mine in my craft drawer so I can nibble while I create. Thank you so much Amy and here's to the 'International Sugar Exchange'!!!!!
