Hello Friends!! 

Today I had the pleasure of playing with the WT451- Masked Fun challenge at Splitcoast.  What a perfect challenge for Halloween. LOL! Instead of making a Halloween card, however, I went with Christmas.

I masked the Christmas Rose from Our Daily Bread Designs 4 times to create a "garden" of roses. I also used masking with a scalloped die to create my sky. After I colored my image with copics (R00, R01, R11, R20, R22, R24, Y21 and Y35  for the roses, G00, YGO3, YG17, and G21 for the leaves, and R24, R59, and R48 for the berries), I dry embossed my panel with Darice Damask

My sewing machine was acting up this a.m. GRRRRRR! So I decided to create a pierced border instead. The sentiment is a sneak peek from Vintage Pattern Ornaments to be released tomorrow at ODBD.

This card also fits this week's Shining the Light Challenge ODBDSLC176 at ODBD which is to not use ribbon or lace.  If you have the time, we would love to have you join us!!

I am entering this into the Word Art Wednesday challenge which is Anything Goes.  Word art Wednesday shares free inspirational scripture and sentiments each week!!

Well that is all for me today!! I had fun creating this but now it is off to work I go.  I hope you all have a chance to stop by tomorrow for the New Release at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!  

Have a blessed day!!!
