Y&FH December Challenge

Hey everyone!!

Happy December!!  I am going to be doing a lot of mad crafting every chance I get!  Need to mail out by next week, but first things first, need to finish!  Are you already done with your Christmas list or do you still have a lot to do?

Today starts the December month long challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  The DT is taking this month off, but had sometime to create some gorgeous samples for today.  We've got two different themes for this challenge that you can play in all month long, with an AWEmazing prize.  Head on over to the Y&FH blog to see the DT samples, find out about the challenge details and then make sure to link up your project. 

As I mentioned, Challenge #8 has two themes, you can choose one or the other or combine both on to one project.  A sketch created by our very own Kim Yu and a color challenge of white, red and camel, check out the inspiration photo if you're stuck.  First up is Kim's sketch:

Next up is the color inspiration from The Perfect Palette of RED, CAMEL & WHITE:

I did a combination of both themes and came up with this card featuring Fumi with Umbrella.

I kept it without a sentiment so that I could add one on later, but I think this could be used for any occasion even Christmas.  Used a few Spellbinders, punches and an embossing folder.  The only patterned paper here is that little piece of vellum with the white swirls.  The lace ribbon was actually white and I used Copic E55 to turn it into a Camel color.

Now even though the team is going to be on a break we have a wonderful guest designer stepping in to help you get in to the holiday spirit.  Stop by the blog to see who it is.  Of course I'll be around to add some inspiration every once in a while.  Okie dokie, you have until Jan 5th to link up your creation for a chance to win the big prize.  You don't want to miss out!!

Mahalo for stopping by!!

What a great job you did combining the sketch and the always get it right. I like how you left the sentiment off and am going to have to remember that.

I have a loooooong way to go to finish my list, at least I have the decorations and tree up.
