November Mood Board - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello everybody,

It's Donna here, and I'm so excited to be sharing a card that I made using the November mood board. I love using mood boards, because sometimes it's hard to know where to start, and the mood board gives me direction and inspiration. We'd love to see what others do with the mood board, so don't forget to share and tag us if you play along. All the links are at the bottom of this post!

So, here is my card...


I stamped the beautiful images from the "Grace's Little Note" stamp set, and heat embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder on a piece of watercolour paper. I then watercolored the flowers using three layers of red and pink, and coloured between the flowers with raw sienna. 
I cut out a window from a piece of off white card, and, using two circle dies, I cut a thin frame for the hole from gold glitter paper. I used the same glitter paper to make the string and top of the bauble, but I just cut these freehand. (That's my version of living life on the edge!)
I stamped the word Celebrate, from the same stamp set as the flowers, and gold embossed this too, In order to match the shape of the design, I stretched the stamp into a curve.
The top panel is popped up with foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. 
Have you seen the mood board that I used as inspiration?
Here's a look at it. You can see that I was inspired by the lovely colour palette, and the Christmas baubles. 

So I look forward to seeing more creations using this lovely mood board!
Until next time, may your days be full of sparkle!

Blessings,
Donna

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
