Wplus9 October Release: Day 3

Sunday, October 9, 2011

I'm back, as promised, with an inspired creation, boasting those fabulous, patterned circles from yesterday's Winter Wishes reveal.  So, let's just get right to it.  Shall we?
I started this layout by trimming each long side of a strip of textured, Whisper White cardstock with strips of Cameo Coral cardstock; stamping the lengths of the Cameo Coral strips, in White ink, with the zig-zag design from Fair Isle Backgrounds; adhering the prepped strip, just left of vertical center, to the textured, Chocolate Chip, cardstock base; and machine-stitching, just inside those trimmed edges, with double, white-threaded, straight stitches.  I then cut a bunch of different snowflakes, some with all the fabulous details and others with just the shadowed image, of all different sizes, from Whisper White cardstock.  The larger, detailed ones were used to frame my circular pics...
but on the smaller, shadowed ones, I stamped, in Cameo Coral and Garden Green inks, those yummy, patterned circles from Winter Wishes.  They were then adhered, with foam tape, in their respective locations and dressed up with a couple of sequin flower centers.
A brown, December '09, mini label...
and "winter playground" title, which was made from brown alphas to blend in with the background and let the snowflake panel really shine, complete the look.
Inspiration for this layout came from Embellish's Circles Color Trends Challenge...
and Pencil Lines' Sketch 253.
Okay, tomorrow, I promise I'll stop playing with these sets and show ya'll something new.  LOL!  Thanks, as always, for thinking enough to peek in, and have a spectacular Sunday!  Oh!  And don't forget that you have a few more hours to link up your takes on my WCMD Color Challenge!  Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeves!
