Jan - I was cruising the gallery last night and found your project before you posted here.

LeighAnn - don't you just hate when you notice something like that when you think you're done with a project.  I look forward to seeing what you made.

Alrighty then, no time like the end of the second to last day to get started.  I have got some stuff drying and hopefully it will come together.  Super fun concept, I found several embellies I could have used.

I am not much of an embellishment person, but I do like them and buy them sometimes.  In this case, I had a collection of embellishments that I had barely used.  I was really happy to put them to good  use and I really liked the result.

Here Comes the Sun.

Thank you for hosting this great challenge!

Hi my name is LeighAnn and I hoard ribbon, stickers, pattern paper and embellishments.
So yeah, this challenge was right up my alley and one I need to have on going with myself to use up some supplies!

I made a Christmas card and it all came together pretty quickly, minus a few errors on my end!

Thank you for this challenge, Sarah! I loved it and I've enjoyed seeing how others came up with their cards too. O0 :smitten:

Great card LeighAnn.  I'm glad I got you to use some of your stash.  I'm in the same boat - I hoard embellishments.

I did it! I made a card using three embellishments as the starting point.  I have to try this more often.

Thank you Sarah for creating this challenge!  It really helped me get out of my comfort zone and I need to do this again for practice.   :smile:

Phew!  Down to the wire!
Thanks for the challenge Sarah, and this WAS a challenge!  I debated and debated over which embellishments to start with, but in the end I really wanted to use the mixed media leaves I made for Sadie's challenge and the sequins I received in Daniel's Oct KIAE swap.

I made a Halloween card.

I'm attaching a close up of the mixed media leaves I made.

Congrats, Sadie.  I probably won't be able to mail your RAK until I get back from the conference but some stamping goodies will be on their way soon.

Thanks to everyone who played along.  All of your projects are amazing, and I'm glad my challenge got you thinking about creating in a different way.

I had fun with your challenge, Sarah.  My 'starting point' was knowing that I wanted to make a mask using 3D stuff. From that point on it was terrific to discover 2 very different embellishments (fabric flowers & fuzzy chenille) that led me along the creative path.

Combining my mask with Heidi's 'Lighten Up' was too perfect a blend to miss!
