Guest Designing for OLCCC



I'm honored to have won the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #11 which gave me the opportunity to Guest Design today for OLCCC #29.  I used one of my favorite layouts for one layer cards and again used the Faux Mother of Pearl technique.  After masking an area on my card front, I used cling wrap to pounce on Ocean Blue Liquid Pearls.  It dried very quickly & then I sponged on VersaMagic Ocean Depth.  This beautiful 2010 Hero Arts snowflake is one of my favorite stamps & I silver embossed it after removing the masking tape.  
Noel is from HA 2011 Merriest Christmas Wishes & I finished off with some splatters of Distress Stain Brushed Pewter. Love having a pretty card to mail that doesn't need extra postage! 




I'm entering the CAS challenge at ABNH,  Anything Goes at One Layer SimplicityStamplorations Theme  (splatters) & Sketch & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
