CCC November Reveal

Today is the 2nd of December so time for the Card Chain Challenge November reveal. With so many people are taking part these days it is making the reveal post very special. I urge you to go take a look as you won't be disappointed.

I included as many of the options as I could for this card and I think I did pretty well in the end.

I have taken a little bit of artistic licence with the colours so silver has become grey. I used distress oxides a blending brush and a piece of paper to make the background. I have seen so many people use the technique to such good effect recently that I just had to have a go myself. After that I used a die cut star as a stencil in the centre of the aperture using the pink (which I think was worn lipstick). 

I cut the aperture from the front panel and embossed it with an Alternew cover plate die. Thanks to Michele (one l) for turning me on to these embossing cover plates and the joy of grey.

The reindeer is my animal with hooves that I die cut from glitter card and stacked. The sentiment is from Uniko and I added an extra star for good measure.

This was sent to Renate in The Netherlands I hope she liked it.

The theme options included animals with hooves, stars and friendship. The technique options included an aperture card and glitter.

My card from Marianne in Greece is still in the post so I am unable to share it with you today.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

Hilary, this is such a gorgeous card!! LOve that cover plate - now isn't that the easiest way to add beautiful detail without detracting from the STAR OF THE SHOW??? I have yet to see this technique done so beautifully, Hilary!

I often just do a friendship card, but this month I used the color combo, too! Fun to see the same elements with totally different results! What a great CCC card!
