Golden Rings for "G"

     Well, so far, I've been able to participate each day in the month long, daily "Holiday" challenges at Beccy's Place.  As my schedule catches up with me and things get busier, I may miss a few days but I'm still determined to try for one card each day.  That means I will have increased my Christmas card stash by an additional 30 cards!  Woohoo!

     Today is supposed to be the day for "G" in the alphabet themes and since Beccy threw us a curve with a Bingo theme yesterday, I'm banking on a return to the alphabet.  :-D  The image is another one from her "12 Days of Christmas" series, this time the 5 Golden Rings.

     As you can see, I chose "G"reen and "G"old for my color combo.  I colored the image with my ProMarkers, trimmed it to fit the entire front of my card, and then went looking for either gold or green embellishments.

    The gold ribbon (which is sparkly so it "G"limmers in the light) is another piece of that gold lame fabric which I had stitched up to make it ribbon.  I just wrapped it around the card front, joining it where I put the bow.  That bow was white but I 'dyed' it green with a marker.  Finally, I found the sentiment in a pile of Christmas confetti and used "G"lue to adhere it to the card.  Even with those two kinds of embellishment, I think the card is still pretty CAS.

You're right about the return to the alphabet NC, there's never a wasted card. Which is good news because this one is a beauty! Green and gold are the sporting colours of Australia, which is always nice to see. I love the fabulous green bow you added, and that sparkly gold ribbon is wonderful. You did an awesome job colouring the little girl, I like the shading around the outside. Well done!
