What a real challenge this one was! This week Sparkle challenged us to make our Christmas cards all green for St. Patty's day. Monochromatic cards are really tough for me so I spent most the week just trying to think of what I could do that would be all green. Christmas trees were on the top of my list, next to that an all sentiment card, and then maybe snowmen or bella. It wasn't until I started looking through my supplies that things began to come together for me. The Falala paper started the snowball effect and from there I went to snowmen, then somehow to alligators with the snowmen's hats, lol.
I had so much fun making these cards. They took forever, lol, but it was exciting to see how they were coming together. The buttons are hand stitched on with glitter floss, half of the paper is scissor distressed, and both the alligator and his hat were paper pieced and then colored (I used some green bazzil to give the gator more texture). I even glittered the tops of their little hats ^_~ These cards looked so fuzzy and cozy that I had to give them some warm winter sentiments. All in all I think these guys are just adorable! Don't forget to check out Sparkle's Blog for the challenge and her cards :D Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Sunday!
