One Layer Christmas- Take One


Glitter close-up! 

I often look at lots of different challenges and let them meld together in my head for a while until they come together in a project. But sometimes I just go off track!

When I started making this card I believed it was for One Layer Christmas Card Challenge with a theme of trees or branches; and that I was combining it with a challenge where the colour theme was 'neutrals'. Well.....

Name dropping coming up..... I was in a trendy (or soon to be !) London bar with my glamourous stamping friends Sandie and Nonni and mentioned this card and they pointed out to me that the theme at OLCCC is actually - green! It appears I went off track because I think I was going to combine the OLCCC green challenge with 'trees' at Shopping Our Stash and then got sidetracked.  And when I got home and checked, I discovered that the neutrals themed challenge was actually for birthday cards!!!

Well, as Nonni pointed out. I can enter my card at OLCCC anyway as the theme is optional, but I had another go at the theme, which I will post separately.

So....all the stamps here (except for the sentiment at the bottom) are from a Stampin Up set, and there is loads of glitter on this card.

Finally, I am entering:
