The second inspiration came from a beautiful colour-inspiration photo over at My Creative Time (see below). The rich colours inspired me to join in their designer challenge. This is the first time I've played over there!
I used My Creative Time's Tag Die Layers to make two tags from vintage-themed patterned paper and I affixed them together at an angle. The cardinal is from K and Company and is perched on a pine branch from Impression Obsession. I added two strips of die-cut rikrak, also from the Tag Die Layers set, and some lace from Kaisercraft. The red polka-dot ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, and the gold ribbon and twine are from my stash. Here's the gorgeous colour-inspiration photo I mentioned earlier.
And of course my elf Eli wanted to get in on the action so he hopped into the photo just as I was finishing up. Now I can link up over at DL.ART's Second Annual Elf Antics Linky Party.
