Silver and Red Holiday Card – Fusion {Sparkly Christmas} Challenge


fusion sparkly christmas

Here is my entry for the latest Fusion Card Challenge {Sparkly Christmas}. I wound two colors of metallic cord around my hand to make a wreath. Perhaps I used a bit too much? I had to use stacks of three foam dimensionals to make the sentiment tall enough to fit over the twine! Definitely not a card to be mailed.

For this challenge, I was successful using both the photo and the sketch.
