Hello everyone! I hope that you’ve all had a fabulous Christmas! Mine was great, moreso because my parents were here from Kamloops to spend Christmas with the family for the first time in 15 years! It was a whirlwind few days but we were all so happy to have them here!
Well it’s the last challenge for 2010 at AiFactory. We’ve got a lovely digital set up for grabs this week. It’s called Ella the flower girl and I just love it!
This week’s theme is ELEGANCE. So however you want to interpret that into your card. It could be an elegant wedding card, or birthday card, or thinking of you.
I did a bridal shower card myself. With my own 5th anniversary next week, I was remembering way back when I was excited to be a new bride and celebrating my wedding. The excitement of my bridal shower only a few weeks before and how my DH and I have celebrated every anniversary since then with a trip to Cuba! (We leave on the 15th on Jan 😉 )
I found this envelope from a B&W swap that I did on a yahoo group ages ago and so I wanted to start using it. Thus my card is mainly black and white with just a bit of color. (forgive my thumb..the card front is cut in half so it doesn’t sit properly like a normal card)
The black paper on the inside of the card is actually floral embossed altho it’s hard to tell. I used some stickles on her dress for some glimmer and some $$ store pearls. The flowers came from the stash swap and I added some stickles to the brad. I distressed the edges of the DP and added a bit of ink here and there on some edges. I cut the image out using my Spellbinders. I also added a border punch to imitate some lacy edging..
I hope you will join in our challenge this week. You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday January 5 to upload your card using the link on the challenge blog! If you are uploading from an online gallery please us AIF061 so we can find your card. Also if you upload your card to our online community gallery, you can win a $10 GC to our store! Speaking of our store, we have some great images that you can use for this challenge in there as well as some freebies so make sure you check it out!
I wish you all the best for 2011 and I hope you will continue to enjoy my cards and projects.

I am thrilled you have joined in my “Free and Easy” theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response – over 600 so far !
I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a “copied and pasted” message, for which I apologise.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
