Another Kristina Challenge

Hello Ladies!

I hope you all had a very fun, joyous and filling Thanksgiving. I know I did and will be over at my in-laws today finishing off that turkey.

Although I knew what I had wanted to do with this challenge I must admit time totally flew by and while I was getting ready to head out for some sales today, remembered I hadn't created my card yet so to the drawing board I went.

These were the color's we were supposed to play with.
and this is what i came up with.

My base cardstock is an 8.5 x 5.5 piece folded in half to create my standard A2 size card. Along the bottom I stamped polka dots in Real Red. I then adhered my sticky cut letters across the top, peeled off the backing and poured dazzling diamonds over them. You'll notice that on the 'T' is a tad of white, well.... that is where my 'M' overlapped the 'T' and the protective layer didn't remove. Whereas if you look at my last 'S' on Christmas, you'll notice the top swoosh of the 'S' is missing and thats because when I removed the 'A's protective cover, it took part of the 'S' with it. Tricky tricky I tell you! I then wrapped a piece of satin black ribbon around the bottom and adhered with a silver brad. Although this card was a tad time consuming, definately NOT a mass producable one, I really like the look of it and a good gf of mine will be receiving it.
