FFC42 - Mid Challenge Inspiration(s)


Time for some mid-challenge inspiration for the current Festive Friday Challenge! 

Remember our inspiration is this:


I made three cards for this week. (did I mention that I love this photo!)

 The first one, like last week's, focuses on the chairs. All that white space, shimmery red ribbon and some pops of brown and green. I used a Savvy die in Early Espresso sponged in white, a Victorine Originals Pinebranch stamped off once in Mossy Meadow and an unknown (but oh-so-useful) 'to the world'.



My next card focuses on the candles in the jars on the table. I love the layered look of the white, dark red and sand all contained in the glass, so I incorporated those elements into my card made out of a transparency sheet. I used a Stampin' Up die which I think looks a lot like ribbon, and which also works for this inspiration photo!


Finally, I went ultra-CAS. One layer, two colours, 5 stamps. The sentiment is Gina K Designs, and the holly and berries came from the PTI Tinsel and Tags kit.

The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday Oct 22 at midnight - hope to see you there!
