So it's totally like me (b/c I'm random like that) to have yesterday's post be about Valentine treats, and then today's revert back to Christmas. So I hope you can go with the flow! LOL! This is a LO that I posted yesterday on the Crop Suey blog that I did with Camille's January kit, Jazz Cafe. When brainstorming this LO, my inspiration actually came from the red sequins. Even though I'm sure that Camille didn't intend for her kit to be Christmas-y at all, the sequins reminded me a lot like holly berries, so I went with it. Then I grabbed a sketch from Becky Fleck, and went to work. And voila! There you have it. I never thought that starting with inspiration from an embellishment would leave me with a LO that I like. But I do.
I hand cut the holly, inked them and the scallops. I also ran that same paper through my Martha Stewart doily border punch (thanks again Sarah! I love it!) to make the edge a little frilly. Why? Because my girls are frilly! LOL!
Anyway, thought I'd share my latest creation. Now I AM moving on to Valentine's stuff, both baking and crafting! Yay for lots of pink! :D :D :D
