Cricut Cardz Challenge #55....

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone!
This weeks Challenge is to make a Christmas
Card with a mini banner on the front, using
any cartridges or colors.... Well.. I have to say
I had to think about this one for a bit... I took a
little more time with trying to figure out how
to put a banner on my card! I used my Design Studio
to help me organize my card.... Took a few adjustments
to get it just right.... I'm still not thrilled
with how it turned out.... but it's my card! :o)

Ok... First off... I had a lot of trouble getting
the picture just right... there is a lot of glitter
on this card sooo it was really hard
to take a good photo....
I shut off my flash and that's why this photo looks sooo yellow/dark...
So I'm sorry about that!
Also... I always say the paper makes the card...
Well I'm not sure this paper makes the card...
 I'm probably my worst critic... but it's the best I could come up with!

Card Stock - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - MME
Cartridges - Martha Stewart All Occasions
(Banner) cut @ 1"
(Star Banner) Cut @ 1" (4x's)
The Word (Happy) Doodletype
The Word (Holidays) cut @ 1"
 Welded in my Gypsy (Gypsy Font)
Snowflake is a Fiskar Punch
Branches are a Martha Stewart Punch
Stickles were used on the "Holidays"
Glue & Glitter was used on the word "Happy"
Blue Bling is from Kaiser Craft 

Here is a picture with the flash on... Let me know
which picture looked better! :o)

Have an AWESOME Day!!!

I really like your card! The banner is really great! Love how you put a snowflake on the last one! I think the top photo is the most plain one. The bottom one has a bit of a glare to it. I have the same problem sometimes, well a lot of times, and I also turn my flash off.

I really like your card too. I always take my pics with the flash off. That's beautiful paper.You can see the details better on the top one.I hope I can do some challenges when the holidays are over.

Love this paper. It is sooo pretty! Great job on the challenge. I like the flash-less pic better. ;-)

What a great card! I love how you incorporated the banner on it. The paper is fabulous! I think I like the flashless one better. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I can't wait to see more creations in the New Year :)
