getting ahead(er)

this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we're inspired by our blog header, so we invite you to choose as many (or as few) elements as appeal to you, and make a holiday card or two

i chose to use the basic color palette of neutrals with pops of lime green and teal blue, and made the reindeer and tree --which are supporting characters in the header-- the stars of the show!

patterned paper: blue fern studio, prima, glitz design, pink paislee, graphic 45, plus scraps of india paper and colorbursted watercolor paper for the snowflakes; reindeer, tree and snowflake dies are all oldschool sizzix steel rule dies that i still use constantly; sentiment sticker: creative imaginations; snowflake stickers: martha stewart; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i used this week's sketch saturday layout pretty faithfully, although i rotated the elements but accidentally forgot to rotate the strip, so i will understand if i am disqualified; but i was definitely inspired by the sketch!

hop on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check out stephanie's beautiful card, then start planning your own holiday masterpiece, darlings!
