Flight of Challenge (365 cards- Day 302)

It has been a long time, but here I am back at a 365 cards challenge. Today is Super Sketchy Sunday and you can see my card above and the sketch below it. A while ago I found some bags of Crayola Model Magic in my studio and one must have been punctured as it was hard as a brick from air drying. The others were still soft so I decided to have a clay play day and I got out molds and charms and played to my heart's content. The hummingbird was one of those creations, made with a flexible mold from Sweet Briar Studio, then colored with old Radiant Pearls and then made even shinier with Pearl-ex. I experimented using two different Cuttlebug embossing folders on the card base, one in just the upper right hand corner took some manipulation using the Sizzix Big Shot, but I think it really pumped up the "3-Dness" (is that a word?) of the card. If you click on the photo of the card you can really get a better idea of how 3-D it really appears.

Flight of Celebration (Merry Christmas)

To one and all, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I wish you Peace on Earth and Joy to The World. Hopefully that is something on which we can all agree.

Stamps: Tree - The Stamping Bug, Merry Christmas - Inkadinkadoo, Snoopy and Woodstock - Rubber Stampede (but Stampabilities now has the rights to those images, so check their inventory).
Joy to The World was done on a Cricut Expression using the Blackletter Font Cartridge.
Paper: Mostly from Wausau, however the red with stripe inside and the words were recycled from a Christmas card envelope.
Inks: Ancient Page by Clearsnap
The ribbon is a teeny, tiny scrap and the glitter glue is so old I had to shake it like crazy to get the glue and glitter to remix together! I have no idea where each came from. The tree was embossed with equally ancient clear embossing powder from a company that has long since disappeared.
