On The Eleventh Day of Christmas...

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Guten Morgen!

Have you been playing along with the 12 days of Christmas challenge over at The Greeting Farm? I hope so because tomorrow is the last day of the challenge and release day for TGF so it's going to be crazy day! Today however, is the eleventh day of Christmas and you can check out the fabulous sketch.....HERE!

Notice anything different about this card?! Here's a hint: there A LOT of one particular color that I am slightly afraid of. It's all blue!! Seriously, I'm not a big fan of blue on my cards. I just can't warm up to it but for some reason, I was immediately drawn to create this all blue card! Weird, isn't it?! But how smoking hot does Miss Savannah Wild Sprout look in this little blue number?! So adorable! And this sheet of dp from the Basic Grey 'Marrakesh' collection just worked so well with this sketch. It doesn't happen often, but every now and then a card comes together easily and this card was one of them! So sweet when it does happen! :)

Tomorrow I have one last card for you as a Gardener for The Greeting Farm. :( I've had such a fabulous time these past three months. Thank you to those who stopped by my blog and left sweet comments during my term.

Oh my gosh, you are done? I had no idea your term for TGF was over! You will be missed!!

I cannot believe you are afraid of blue. I wonder what that is all about, especially cuz this card is just adorable!

Tell me something, did you shade the edges of the blue background panels or do they just look that way naturally from the print?

Can you believe I did not even see all those rhinestones til I read your 'recipe' and now it is like wow, what an effect!

I am so sad that your term at TGF is over... I really love your cards, Sandra! And are doing an amazing job with TGF designs! You will be missed!
Talking about your card - blue looks fabulous here! Fantastic job on this challenge! Love how you added rhine stones! And of course your cooring is a piece of art!
Happy New Year to you and family!

Sandra, your card is just delightful. I can't imagine you being afraid of any color, but I understand I have to work up to using certain colors as well.

Have an awesome day!!

So sad to see your term coming to an end, though I know I can always come here to get my 'Sandra fix'! ;)

This card is a real stunner, I would have never guessed you weren't a fan of blue because you totally rocked it here and Savannah is gorgeous!
