by gosh, by golly....

So the new Timeless Tuesday Flourishes Challenge was posted today... and don't fall down... but I actually made a card on the SAME day. Amazing. AND... my pal Miriam is the Guest Designer for the Tuesday Challenges this month and I was so THRILLED for her to get chosen this month! Way to go Miriam!!!
The challenge this week is to create a card with the "Out of the Box" Technique. You can read all the challenge details here ---> Timeless Tuesday #142. The card base is ivory, but I covered the entire front with the striped paper.
 Here is the mistletoe image and you can see the leaves that are "out of the box". I stamped the image on Neenah Classic Natural White (ivory) and did not add any color to the berries. I used G20 to add a soft glow around the berries, then softened the edges with the Blender pen. It does not show up well in the pic.
Here is a close up of the card. I added Viva Clear Glass Effects Pen over the berries to add dimension, it will dry clear but it is not quite dry yet in the picture... which gives it a blueish tint. I cut the sentiment and the mistletoe image out using Rectangle Nesties, and all the additional layers were created using Perfect Layer Rulers


  1. Such a fun sentiment to compliment your image Jenny!

  2. Pretty-coloring great as usual. Like the sentiment!

  3. Gorgeous card and great take on the challenge.
    I used the same image with the same technique for a card I am showing next week. LOVE your creation.
    Thanks so much for playing.
    Hugs and smiles
