Signs of Santa for JAI #432

Yes, it's another happy Friday and we are now almost 2/3 the way through Spring already! Where has the year gone?! Everything in the garden is growing - the flowers, the veggies and yes, also the weeds but it is a sure sign the weather is slowly but surely getting warmer. 😊

It's also time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink . This week the lovely Patrice has suggested a fun Choose Two out of Buttons, Bows or Bling challenge for us all to use in our crafting this week. The options are almost as open as your imagination and we hope that you will enjoy this one as much as the design team did! We hope that you can take a moment to pop on over to see the fabulous variation the team has come up with to inspire you and hopefully join us.

So here we go, my first Christmas card of 2018!! Not a moment too soon either given it's almost November already πŸ˜‰For my items, I chose Bows and Bling. The presents have the bows and the bling is in the silver glimmer snow flakes and backing layer. The images are all cut from the stunning Santa's Workshop DSP. This pretty special paper pack has images that fit into the Framelits - so no need to colour unless you want to.  The only stamping is "North Pole" on the sign and the sentiment.

And there is a fabulous flocking effect on all of the pages - the striped base layer for example has white "flocking" stripes and so is Santa's hat pom pom and the signs and more and more.... A beautiful textural effect perfect for the visually impaired or any child or child like adult to enjoy πŸ˜€

The background layer is water coloured lightly with Pool Party and then for good measure and extra bling, a little Wink of Stella is flicked over it too.
