Good morning friends, I’m excited as today I get to share my first DT card with you for the winter wonderland challenge. I am honoured to be part of this friendly and talented team and hope I can live up to expectations. The challenge this week is “my sentiments exactly” and we want your sentiment to be the main focal point on your card. Don’t forget that at the moment you can choose to make any card you like, it doesn’t have to be a Christmas card. Here is my card:
The DT were lucky enough to be given sentiments to use by one of our sponsors this week and I chose this gorgeous swirly one. I love the different fonts and that you can add a touch of colour if you like. My poor promarkers have been sulking all day as I didn’t use them very much. However to make up for neglecting them I did colour my sheer organza ribbon with my turquoise promarker to match my card. I have to say that I really struggle with sentiment only cards but at least I like the colour scheme I’ve chosen for this card.
We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $15.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.
Our second sponsor is a new sponsor for us at winter wonderland and they are called Sentiments 4 You and it is one of Lynne’s lovely sentiments that I have used on my card. The lucky winner will receive a $10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store. Please pop over and check out their shop as they have so many beautiful sentiments to choose from.
The rest of the DT have created gorgeous samples for your inspiration. Both Marianne’s team (which I’m part of) and Kate’s team and sharing cards with you this week, after this week we will be sharing our cards with you on alternate weeks. Please pop over to the challenge blog and check out their beautiful cards.
