Sassy Christmas Challenge #4 - Non-Holiday Image

Happy July 4th weekend!!! While some are thinking about fun in the sun, here at Sassy Studio Designs we are thinking about the holidays! Holiday cards to be more specific! It's the first of a new month and that means the start of a new Sassy Christmas Challenge over on the Sassy Studio Designs blog! And do we have a fun theme for you this month, Challenge #4! We want you to use a NON-holiday image to create a holiday project!

My card uses the Victorian Beauty image. Her attire reminded me of those vintage Victorian Christmas scenes you see. I kept my lay out pretty simple and it is all my own design (no sketch here today). I inked up Stampin' Up's Christmas Collage in Old Olive and colored parts of it with Copics and Prismacolor Art markers. I then layered it on top of a partially embossed piece of Riding Hood Red card stock, added lace, pearls, a Tim Holtz corner, a poinsettia flower and my sentiment. The whole thing was then adhered to a 5x7 card made from Old Olive card stock. I was pretty pleased with the results, and it was definitely fun to think outside the box!

If you'd like to play along, or simply want to see the other gorgeous creations from the Sassy design team, visit the SSD blog here. You MUST use a Sassy Studio Designs image to play along and you have until July 31st to enter! Two Sassy images of your choice could be yours! :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a safe start to your holiday weekend!

Wow outdid yourself on this one. I think this is my favorite. The coloring you did is gorgeous! Looks like you used real material rather than a marker. HUGS
