No Flowers Allowed - Charisma DT

Good Morning. It is supposed to be another beautiful sunny day so why do I need to go to work?

Before I head off I want to share with you a card that I have made for the start of the new challenge at Charisma Cardz. This week Jenni has chosen the theme of No Flowers Allowed.

This week we are generously sponsored by StampFairy who have offered up a fabulous prize for one lucky winner.

For my card this week I have decided to use my favorite StampFairy snowfriend George. Somehow for me, no flowers means snow. This is the first StampFairy image that I ever owned and it was a treat to create a new card with it for today.

I have coloured the image in my classic George colours to match some great papers that I had in my stash from Prima and MME and added some puffy snow for dimension.  I have embellished with several swirls and a layered diecut snowflake which are in keeping with the wintry feel, just like a cold windy and snowy day. You will see that I am slowly trying to break out of the box so to speak and I have even allowed a few of the embellies to overhang the edges just a little.

I hope that you will join us for the challenge. I look forward to seeing what you create. Before you head off to start creating, be sure to stop by the Charisma Cardz blog and be inspired by the rest of the wonderful DT creations.
