ABC 'N' for No Embellishments Challenge

Good Morning :-) I hope the sun is shining wherever you are :-)

There are only 167 days left to Christmas and you can never have too many cards ready, so if you haven't already started popping cards into your Xmas box then now's the time to start ! :-)

We all need to make cards that will fit into envelopes, especially those that are to be posted overseas, so this challenge is perfect for those ,,,,

N for No Embellisments,
no gems, ribbons, flowers or even punched snowflakes ,, haha :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Gerda, owner of Stamp Fairy and we have a $10 voucher to give away ! :-)


I didn't use any stamps this week ,, all die cuts using dies borrowed from Heather ! Which I definitely need to buy now !! :-)

I love the deer walking amongst the trees and the long grass ,,, :-) I masked the moon and inked the background with distress inks then sprayed with Studio Calico shine to create a snowy background, I love this effect :-) I then masked the background and sprayed the moon with a delicate yellow ands soft orange copics, this doesn't show up in the photo unfortunately.
In retrospect I would chop a 1/2 cm off the whole card and have the tops of the trees at the top of the card ,,,, next time ,,,,, :-)

Challenges :
Crafty Sentiments ,,, Christmas in July
Creative Card Crew ,,,, The Great Outdoors
ABC ,,,,,,, Christmas in July
Card Mania   ,,, Christmas in July
Stamp and Create ,,, Christmas in July



Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
