Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

Happy day!

I made another card for another challenge...  I recently discovered the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenges Blog and I really love all the inspiration I get from their challenges.  So since I need to make Christmas cards, I am trying to participate in challenges when I can.

As in yesterday's post I made a Xmas card with nontraditional colors...  You can see that one clicking HERE.

I first sprayed some gold in the card base emphasizing in two opposite corners, knowing I intended to place the main image in that position at right.  I used some glass beads effect for the background.  Loved it.



The image and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Co.  I colored the image with watercolor pencils.
Here's a detail of the crystals... beautiful!



Hope you liked my card.  

I will of course link this to Curtain Call.  Stop by and see all the beautiful creations if you have a chance.

Since I used Unity Stamps I will also link this to Friday Friends with Flair next Friday.  Leave a comment for a chance to win.
