Make It Monday # 143 ~ Modern Whimsy Style


Danielle Flanders showed some tips and guidelines in creating a modern whimsy style kind of card.
You can go HERE  to watch the video.
This is definitely NOT my style..but I gave it a go.
I thought perhaps the Lovely Layers would look a bit like a poinsettia so I embossed some of the layers and used vellum and sweet blush and some zing powder.
 
We might get some snow!!  It is in the low 20's and there are flurries just north of us!
 
Heart Hugs,
Colleen

  4. I think you did master the style. Love the vellum on this card with the other pinks and greens. The sentiment is so true. People are so nice and sweet to each other. Wish the spirit of Christmas was all year long in the hearts of everyone.
