Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Its beginning to Look a lot like Christmas......Jingle Bells.....Merry & Bright......Well these are the songs going through my mind when I was making this card today...

You see our challenge this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is to make a card that is inspired by a song. As you can tell I could not stick to one my mind was wondering off everywhere while I was making my card and being a Christmas card I could get away with it and add an element of each to it!

I really struggled finishing my card as it was not coming together and no matter what I tried it just looked like someone had vomited on it but in the end after leaving it for an afternoon, coming back to it, leaving it for dinner and then coming back to it I decided to just go with it stick I down and see what happened. Well I felt it was a little unbalanced so I decided to doodle in some white stitching on the black Tilda's lace and although it is partly what it needed clearly  I did not have my straight eyes on... adds to the authenticity of it though, LOL!

The end result is that  I love the colours of the card and had a ball colouring up this gorgeous Tilda but think it is still a little unbalanced but then again I think that we can often be too tough on ourselves and forget that this is a hobby and as long as we have fun making it and are generally happy with the card then that is what matters right? 

Anyhow I appreciate the time you have taken to come have a look at my card. 

I would love to see you join in with us on this challenge and who knows you might win a prize or be picked in our top 5!  Make sure you go visit the MDUC bog and check out the inspiration but beware you will start humming away as you look through the cards, LOL!

  5. This is a fabulous card and although you may not be so pleased, I think it's wonderful. I love the reds & your shading & highlighting is perfection! Great papers and embellies too... oh yes, I also like the stitching.

  6. This is gorgeous, I think the white faux stitching did the trick, it really mdee the ribbon pop. We are often our own worst enemy. I love the red you chose, it is difficult to color, you've done a great job.
