So, the luck of the calendar has landed me on a combo for my design teams today! As You See It #313 is a speed challenge with a theme of stars, while this round of Sparkles Christmas Challenge #155 would like to see holiday animals or birds! Yikes!
After some careful digging, I decided to pull my White Christmas set from 2014 for this one - I remembered the tiny cardinals in this one, with everyone looking at the sky - I knew it wouldn't need a lot of color! I figured I could plan this pretty well, too - go ahead and assemble materials and papers, mount all my stamps and open all the inks - I even opened my Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to be ready to go! It also helped that I already had the deckled rectangle cut - I'm accumulating quite a few extras in the die sleeve these days! Once I was prepped, I started the clock! First I ran and embossed my background, then I sat down and stamped out my scene, all in Black. I had Blends standing by, then brushed on a swoosh of two-way glue to take my glitter. I set that aside for a sec and stamped my envelope, AND got the inside sentiment, too! Quick assembly and I was done! I think this is one of my best times ever - 4 minutes & 56 seconds! Yes!
I can't wait to see what you come up with for this one - meet you at the challenges!
