Holiday @ATSM

Good evening and welcome to a post to announce the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week the theme is - 


So, any project that celebrates a holiday, Christmas or as Easter is just around the corner why not an Easter card, the choice is yours.
For my card I went with Christmas as I have plenty of Easter cards and my stash of Christmas ones could do with an addition.

My inspiration for this came from a couple of challenges. I used the sketch at Sketch Saturday and the photo at Christmas Card Challenges.

I used Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire to create the inky background and I used some linen textured card to die cut the panels as well as the base card.
After inking the purple panel I spritzed it with my own mix of Platinum Inca Gold and water to give the sky some shimmer, then added some white stars with a gel pen. I cut a circle in the top white panel with a MFT stitched circle die then cut a frame for it with two of the same. From scraps of textured card I cut a tree scene using a Marianne die and assembled the bits to create the scene. A length of silver chord was wrapped around the central panel and tied with a bow to finish. The assembled panel was popped up over the purple one and then that was glued flat on to the base card.

OK, that's a wrap from me. Please check out the rest of the team for more inspiration and then why not join us?
