HIMCR Challenge # 177 ~ Christmas Colours
Hope you're all having a great weekend.  It's Saturday, so it's time for another challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room.  This week's challenge is to make a project using Christmas colours.  Not only fun, but it will also get you to catch up on those Christmas cards that need to be done :-)
Our sponsor this week is The Paper Temptress.  I always enjoy making cards using her papers and this time was so exception.

I made two cards for our challenge # 177.  The first one uses a beautiful gold foiled overlay.  I decided to layer it over the antique gold mica metallic paper.  I couldn't take a photo that would do it justice, it is just stunning! Because the paper already makes the card, I just added a couple of pinecones from Lea'bilities, a pine branch from io Dies, some berries that I purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts and some card candies from my stash. 

For my second card, I used this beautiful green and red Christmas paper. It has a beautiful shine to it.  I used the Ruby mica/metallic paper as a mat and made the card base out of the Antique Gold mica/metallic cardstock. I cut the ornament shape using the 2012 Heirloom Ornament from Spellbinders.  Then I used their Heirloom Reflections die to cut the inside using the gold cardstock. A gold ribbon bow and some red gems finished it off.
The Paper Temptress is also sponsoring our prize this week by giving away a $20 gift certificate to their store to one lucky participant.  So, if you want to stand a chance at this awesome prize, gather your Christmas supplies and create a project using Christmas colours. You have till Saturday, 13 December 2014, at 2:00 am PST, to link your project to our challenge #177.
Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you back soon.
Till next time,
Happy Crafting!
