I loved this challenge as it really made me think out side of the box.
The picture on the left doesn't show the features very well I am afraid. The snow flakes where done with a punch using glitter board and I added a clear gem to the centers. I have edged both the edge of the aperture and the die cut with a thick coating of holographic glitter glue. I'm having fun playing with acetate at the moment, so it will probably turn up in a few more projects over the next few weeks.

The pyramage is one that I put together several months ago, so the colours for the card are inspired from that. I have embossed a piece of white card and coloured it using Dusty concord distress ink. The card blank is a soft mint colour.
I like the card so much that I decided that It would be perfect for Sue.
The background black and orange paper was created using makeup sponges and ink dabbed onto white card. I did the same with the sentiment plaque (which is edged in black). I have used an orange card blank, which is unusual in the fact that I usually only use white card blanks to work with.
I have used 2mm black ribbon to create the four "lines" and black lace for a slightly scalloped edge.
As much as the colours I have used are very Halloweeny, this is a birthday card. I hope she likes it.

I had a parcel delivered today which contained some lovely pyramage sheets and I couldn't wait to play with them. The shape of this one was perfect for Domi's sketch. I have added holographic glitter glue to the wings and the white die cut was done using, what I call, glitter board. The snow flakes are Anitas dimensions and the paper is Papermania "Naughty and nice Christmas". I have had everything else for ages and couldn't start to tell you where they came from.

I'm not entirely sure why I haven't bought any before, but I'm glad that I did. I used a bit of the clear holographic on the edges of the little decoupage boy and gold to edge the chocolate flower.
I haven't taken part in many challenges lately, so I made this card in response to Stamp something who challenged us to use the colour brown, SCSC who challenged us to use autumn colours and Sketch Saturday who provided us with a wonderful sketch to work with. I rotated the sketch for this card and I have used a lot of texture. The card is richer in colour than you can see in this photo, but ho hum.... we do what we can.
Have a good weekend.
