Here is the first. For Day 1, we were to select our favorite movie from a few offered and develop a card that fits that movies theme. I selected “A Charlie Brown Christmas” because I love that it includes the true meaning of Christmas in Linus’ speech. My card features an image from a Beccy’s Place digi set named “A Nativity.” (You can find it HERE.) I colored Baby Jesus on the image with chalks and layered a piece of decorated vellum atop the colored image. Added a free sentiment from Victorine Originals (you can find it HERE. Select “digital” in the drop-down bar for “mounting type.”) The inside sentiment is a retired one from Denami Designs. The final touch was to add tiny red rhinestone holly berries on the front and inside vellum.

The current challenge at wecraftcards Forum is called “Shake It.” I tried something a little different when making this shaker card. Instead of using acetate to contain the sequins within the enclosed window, I used a scrap of one of my mom’s old nylon hair scarves. She would have LOVED seeing it used in this way. And she would have loved coloring this sweet image from A Day for Daisies named "Hello Baby Giraffe." (You can buy the image HERE but… you’d better hurry. The shop will be closing forever on July 31st so right now artist/owner Tammy is offering 20% off on any purchases. I’ll miss her sweet and often whimsical images.)
I colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiments are all chipboard items from my scrapbook stash. Am entering this card into several challenges including Double D’s (inspired by the mood photo to make it sparkle!)
