STAMPlorations December challenge

Just what you were waiting for - the new monthly challenge is starting today  at STAMPlorations!

This is recap of last years challenges and you can choose any past challenge - sketch or monthly theme.
Of course I had to make another Christmas card, using the Vignette: Christmas Block.

I used a silver metallic paper and dropped alcohol inks on it. Waited until it was dry and then stamped with Staz-on ink the sentiment on it. Popped it up with foam tape and added some silver string behind the panel. 

I used sketch #19:

Here is another picture of my card - it was a little tricky to photograph, because of the metallic paper. But it look soooooo cool in real life - wish I could show it to you...

Our challenge ends December 31; the winner will be announced January 6, 2015.

Prize: Winner receives 2 stamp sets (3" by 5") if she used STAMPlorations stamps in her entry; if not, she receives 1 stamp set. She also gets to be the guest designer for the February 2015 Challenge

Our guest designer this month is Laura Jane from  After Hours Ink and Flowers. She made a stunning card for our challenge - you gotta see that - I have been admiring it on the DT blog now for quite a while..... And as always our DT has come up with amazing cards, so hop on over and see for your self!

I am also linking my card with Stempelkueche - Untypische Weihnachtskarte = atypical Christmas Card
