Merry Christmas...FTTC145 52

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 21, 2011 @ 11:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all off to a great week! I'm so tickled pink and honored to share with you that a few of my cards have been featured on the beautiful Melissa Frances blog! Pinch me please! I would be thrilled to pieces if you would click HERE and take a peek :)

It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! Thanks to all who played along with last week's challenge ~ so many beautiful entries! This week Heather is our lovely hostess and she is challenging us to create using the Dryer Sheet Technique. I love the soft look that may be achieved using this technique. If you need a little instruction or need to refresh your memory on how to create using the Dryer Sheet Technique, please click HERE for a wonderful tutorial on SCS.
I made a Christmas card combining one of the many sweet images from A Season of Celebrations and the Merry Christmas sentiment from The First Noel.
I stamped the silhouette image from A Season of Celebrations, cut using a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen die template then applied the dryer sheet referring the tutorial on SCS. For a bit of shimmer, I sprinkled on some fine glitter:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Deconstructed Sketch:
Thanks so much for visiting today!  I hope you take on the challenge and for some awesome inspiration, please be sure to see what the following designers have created: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Miriam Napler (November Guest Designer). Please be sure to visit the Flourishes site for COMPLETE details on how to join in on the fun!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes A Season of CelebrationsThe First Noel
