Colour Create DT and another oooops!!

So many of you seemed to like my choice of all white last week, so thank you all for the fabulous cards you entered. I couldn't possible comment on all - far too many (especially with a computer that's misbehaving and Mr Blogger playing silly games at the weekend) - but I popped in and looked at them all and was amazed and inspired by the wonderful creations you came up with.

The lovely Karen's choice this week at Colour Create and she chose blue, white and silver with the optional extra of glitter and winter.




I really enjoyed this one inspite of my oooops's - more than one I might add. I thought I would do a half-acetate card - this together with the silver made it so difficult to photograph. I stamped the sentiment/greeting on the inside, forgetting that it would show through th acetate and had to shuffle the ribbon and bow across and tweak it so the it wouldn't show. I coloured the parcels with a silver glaze that doesn't show, although you might just discern it in the close up.

The next oops hasn't happened yet - I'm flying back to England on Wednesday to sort out my car and arrange to have it transported over here to Germany  (cheaper would you believe than using the ferry and driving). This means I will have schedule this card - oh dear - this has gone wrong when I've tried it in the past but who knows I have to get it right sometime - lol.



I coloured the Sugar Nellie image 'Santa's little Helper' with copics, cut her out with the Spellbinders Labels 4 die. The snowflakes are cut with the EK Succes snowflake punch and the Provocraft snowflakes 2 die. The border is cut with the Carla Craft Macaron punch as are the corners.




I had intented to put the image on the outside of the acetate, but after playing around decided it looked better on the inside with the snowflaked acetate sitting over the image. The sentiment is from Lakeland Plastics and the ribbon and pearls from stash.



I've noticed that Copic Creations have red hair as their current challenge so I will enter this card as I coincidently gave my little lady red hair.
