Crazy 4 Challenges

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Wow, I can't believe that this is the last Saturday of this month.  November has flown right by and today is my last project as the Guest Designer with the ladies of Crazy 4 Challenges.  In honor of Square Dancing Day, this week's challenge is all about Squares......

For this card I started with a 5 by 5 inch square card base.  I used a square Spellbinders die to create a window frame for my stamped image.
I love this image from Tim Holtz - it is from the stamp set "Christmas Blueprint". I colored the image with Copic Markers then covered it with a layer of Crackle Accents. I really love the results!

Isn't that fun?!

I stamped and colored a couple of holly leaves using an image from Hero Arts.  After coloring, I spritzed a bit of Gold Color Shine by Hedi Swapp onto the leaves. I also added some Glossy Accents to the berries.  The gold trim is actually crochet thread that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, I love the tiny gold sequins ♥

And there you go!  I hope you head over to the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and check out the projects created by the Design Team - they are amazing!  I want to thank Frances again for letting me play along with these wonderfully talented ladies this month. I've had a wonderful time!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon...
