November Elemental Inspiration - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy November!

I'm back as Guest Designer on the Daring Cardmakers blog.  This week's challenge is an inspirational one for November that can be found here.  The elements I used were colours, textures and tree.  I love vibrant colours so this challenge inspired me to create this:


I used the inverted image from a new Sizzix die in gold and backed it with turquoise glitter, purple embossed and pink pearlised card.

I couldn't find an appropriate sentiment and it got me thinking, does a card need a sentiment? You can clearly see this is a Christmas Card so I went without and I'll be doing a lot more cards without sentiments too!

My other current love at the moment is non traditional colours for Christmas cards........

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and your comments are always appreciated.

  12. Love this card, the colours and the designs. I think cards without a sentiment are ok, I do leave some of mine blank and then sometimes add one when I know what the card is going to be used for.
