Happy Holly Days Robin Wreath TTT140

by Joanne James18. November 2021 12:00

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at TicTacToe! It's the turn of Team X to host this week and the lovely Vicky is our featured designer this week. This is the fun board that we are playing along with: 

    

I used the sketch over at TGIF Challenges for my layout today - I thought that circle would be the perfect spot for a festive wreath to frame my colourful robin - and went across our tictactoe grid with layers/wreath/bird for my card today. Take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

I used one of my favourite patterns from the Painted Christmas paper pack for the base of my card, added a couple of diecut wreaths, along with a few extra pieces of diecut holly leaves, a bow of glittered organdy ribbon and my sentiment, which I anchored with a robin from the Happy Holly Days stamp set, stamped and coloured with my Stampin' Blends. I added a few garden gems for a little extra sparkle to finish my card:

 

When it comes to colouring, I'm no expert but I do love it - so theraputic! A little extra stamping on the inside completes my card:

 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

A tictactoe board offers so many creative possibilities - how does this week's board inspire you? Why not have a go? We would love to see you in the gallery and who knows - you might be selected for Designer's Choice and be eligible to be a guest designer on a future challenge. 

Enjoy your day; a slightly earlier post from me today as I'm going to watch one of the James Juniors play hockey at school this afternoon; not something I get the opportunity to do often, but definitely a benefit of working for yourself that you can flex your hours to enjoy life's simple pleasures! Then the other of my charges is on a late pickup, as he has swim squad training after school. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

What a lovely card Joanne! You are expert at bringing out elements of your papers - here, the wreath looks almost part of the background. I adore your beautifully coloured robin too. Hope you enjoyed the hockey - so good to be able to support your family with a flexible job. Have a great weekend! Vicky x
