Home For Christmas-Color Challenge

When I first saw this set in the SU mini catalog, I wasn't sure if I even liked it. Then slowly but surely after seeing all the FABULOUS creations with it, I had to have it!! I decided when I saw today's Color Challenge over on SCS, that I would FINALLY get this set inky!! I started by stamping my image with Vanilla Craft Ink from SU then stamping the image again with Sahara Sand to give it the 3D effect. I layered it with Very Vanilla, Basic Black and then Vanilla again. I added some piercing, gold brads, gold spiral clips, and Vanilla taffeta. The base of the card uses the same colors, and I ran the Sahara Sand layer through my Cuttlebug with the houndstooth folder. I also used my Cuttlebug and Ribbon Slide Tag dies from Spellbinders to make the sentiment panel. I threaded some Black Organdy ribbon(retired SU) through it and tied it around. I added a piece of cream organdy and gold cord(both SU), did some more piercing and added a couple more gold brads. It image isn't as WOW as I would like it to be, but I am pleased with the outcome. Well, better get back to entertaining my nephew!! Thanks for stopping by!!
