On Dasher!

I've been invited to be the Guest Designer at Cute As A Button for this challenge. I'm honored and thrilled to have been invited to have the chance to join this talented Design Team for this challenge of WINTER. I've used this image named Tangled Lights. Isn't this image the sweetest ever!  I love her and want to thank Francesca for letting me use her for this challenge. I love using red at the holidays. I think the bright colors are fabulous at Christmas because they're happy colors and red at the holidays is perfect!


I colored my image with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to each light bulb. The pearl in the center of the bow in the corner is a brad with the legs cut off and glued on.


I used white iridescent sequins and added itsy bitsy pearls in the center of each (since I don't like the holes showing in the sequins). Her little white tail has white fun flock on it for a fluffy look. My sentiment tags are from Lili of the Valley and I tied them to the bit of red lace and tan edging on top of the lace with embossing floss. The reindeer in my arrangement is a button from Dress It Up and I cut off the shank and glued him in, and the candy cane is actually a miniature ornament from Hobby Lobby. The pinecones, which are real, and the silk flowers have a dash of gold paint on all of them and I added a small gold bell to my red, green and white baker's twine bow. I used papers by Doodlebug. The 3 gold glitter flat backed pearls are from JoAnns. I spotted her bag and then added a dash of glitter to each dot for sparkle.


I hope you'll stop by the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and see the outstanding projects the Design Team has made to inspire you to join the challenge of WINTER.

Thank you, Francesca and the Team, for inviting me to be your Guest Designer this week and for all your kindness and words of encouragement!

                                                                           Hugs,
                                                  Gail
