CCC #1

The lovely Deborah is starting a new challenge called the Card Chain Challenge or CCC.

It's a challenge that everyone benefits from participation since each and every participant receives a card from a fellow card maker! I am so lucky to be the one that receives a card from the very talented Tomo. Look at what I got from her!!

I love the color combination and the amazing details that Tomo put into this card. I fell silent the minute I saw this card and was admiring and trying to figure out how it was made. There is a very subtle golden faux stitch line around the die cut piece and a text paper behind the red/brown button. Tomo also put a layer of Perfect Pearl over the beautiful fall leaves that gave it a gorgeous shine. It is a card so perfectly crafted and I love it! Thank you so much Tomo!

Here is the card that I made for the challenge.

I am so glad that it has arrived safely at its new home! I am also very happy to hear that the lovely Heather likes it!

I used the sketch that Deborah provided for the challenge to make this card. The digital Whimsical Girl is from Bee Crafty and I colored her with Copics. I added the grass and ground so that the image looks a little more complete.

Thank you Deborah for hosting this new challenge! I had so much fun and made two friends in the process!

Thank you so much again Alice for your stunning card. I love it so much! I'm just sorry the photo I took of it doesn't do it justice - it is even more beautiful in real life. Tomo's card is gorgeous too. I'm so glad we all took part in Deborah's Card Chain Challenge. Heather.
