I am not 100% convinced that I like this card. I like the CAS layout. But I was going for a wintery look on the wreath with a bright, festive red bird - singing his heart out - and it just feels "off". Perhaps I am just a very traditional red/green cardmaker unless snow or snowmen are involved??
The festive aspect of the card is better IRL when you can see the sparkle.
What do you think??

Oh, Kim, I think it is just perfect! I LOVE wintry blues on a holiday card, and you have nailed it with the pop of red. The punched corners add just the right amount of interest to the background, too. Beautiful job!ReplyDelete
Kim, your card is gorgeous. Lovely wintry blues and the placement of the gems is spot on.ReplyDelete
I think it really works! I like non-traditional colours at Christmas. You can see the shimmer and the gems are just the right touch! It's lovely!ReplyDelete
Absolutely love the wreath Kim & the cute birdie is a perfect touch! :)ReplyDelete
Love it, Kim! The colours are so pretty ... I think you are being a little hard on yourself. Sweet card. Love the shimmer and bling! Hugs xxaxxReplyDelete
I think it's awesome - I like the non-traditional colours and the sparkle. For the sake of playing around though what if you could emboss the white cardstock but only the part outside the wreath? Like with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder so it looks like snow. Just a thought... :)ReplyDelete
I like it...I thought it came out perfect. The red berries on the wreath balance out the red bird.ReplyDelete
What a pretty card Kim, I love the CAS design and the shimmery colours too :)ReplyDelete
Love your design, the crispness of the blues and the added bling. xReplyDelete
