Apparently I'm becoming a last minute challenge participate. I've really wanted to do this challenge since Cath posted it, but with EBTKS launching and finishing up my December Daily (check back tomorrow night to see) I'm just not getting to it. However, with an inspiration photo like this ... how could I not jump in the fun!
Check out this image from Laura O'Donnel's inspiration. Isn't it fantastic? That Martha... she really knows what she's doing:
And here's my card:
I'm just loving these blues mixed. I would have never put these together without this inspiration! That's why I love challenges ... cards like this.
Plus, I only have one gold thing in my craft room - embossing powder. So I broke it out in a big way. I love how the embossed chipboard letters turned out.
