Fab Friday 58

Decided to enter a couple of challenges, 
whilst making some.......shhhh xmas cards....

Here's a sketch from Fab Friday Challenge


I'm hoping it doesn't have to be a circle, and that my tree is ok?
---------------


Then the 52 Christmas Card challenge had this theme


---------------

and The Male Room challenge is
to create your own background paper
so I'm hoping this is masculine enough too!


Phew!

It definitely has sequins and pearls!
which I used glitter glue to adhere, as the glue always oozes out
(some pearls on the tree are hard to see,
 and the snowflake atop the tree is a sequin isn't it?)

I did create the background,
using a lovely sentiment set I won at the Snippets Playground.
I stuck 'em all on my clear block, then stamped a couple of times
to cover my card blank.
Added some stars randomlike too!

I also dry embossed the red card with part of my win too,
does that count as creating your own background?


Anyhow, it's all a bit of fun,
and I'm hoping I'll get the hang of the rooooools the more I 'play'!

Gotta dash off to enter now..........
hope you are having a relaxing Sunday....

  7. I really like your homemade background. It came out very nice. Sequin and pearls are usually so feminine but I think you rocked it being gender neutral if not manly.
