design team card

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Today was a productive day in that I accomplished a lot of my Christmas tasks.

I picked up a few more gifts, mailed my cards, and sent a package off to my son & daughter-in-law in California.

I decorated the tree in the living room. This is my Victorian tree. Tomorrow I will put away all the empty decoration boxes and make my grandson's Christmas cards.

I go to meet the school bus tomorrow. Ethan has a school Christmas play tomorrow evening.

Anyway, that's my update for today. Now onto my card.

This is one that I did as my design team sample on splitcoaststampers.

The color challenge this week was hosted by Vicki and she chose concord crush (deep purple), marina mist (blue) and basic gray.

I cased myself and recreated this card in the challenge colors.
My card base is a metallic gunmetal and I layered concord crush on top of that. The top striped layer isdesigner paper from lasting impressions and the purple metallic is from hot off the press.

I used a spellbinders lacy square die and cut more concord crush and layered designer paper on that. My Jesus image is colored in the marina mist to complete that requirement. I also used some concord crush to complete my card.

I also entered this one in the abc christmas challenge. This blog does a christmas challenge all year long. They take the letter of the alphabet to come up with their theme. They are at "z" now. For this challenge you could go back to any of the prior ones and pick one you missed. I chose "x" is for xmas.

The dutch dare blog had a christmas challenge as well.

Well, it's another busy day tomorrow so I am dimming the lights in charmed life land for another day.


  1. Love your card! Great colors. Thanks for joining us at DDCC.

  2. So gorgeous, Mary! I was amazed at how the blue toned down the purple in the concord and made it look more of a richer blue with this trio. Stunning image and sentiment, too! Wonderful Christmas card!
