52CC Throwdown & CSAYL

Hey there, I have a card to share which is either going to have you love it or hate it. More so because of the colours I have chosen and the whole card is perhaps a little over the top? Anyway, be honest, cause it's one of THOSE cards lol.
The gals at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown have an Embellishment Challenge which is to use Chipboard. I went into a bit of a panic attack because.... I don't have any. I then found a package that my mum had given me ages ago which was more for scrapbooking. The words in it are more for little girls etc. There was one word that I could use - JOY. How about that?
The ladies over at CSAYL have a challenge which is to use non-traditional colours. Now, I LOVE non-traditional colours usually. I particulary like purple on Christmas Cards. Then I threw in some Orange. Mmmm hmmmm......

So, now that my whole family have little glitter bits on them, what do you think? I have mixed emotions about this card. I'm not really sure even how do describe my emotions lol.

Oh well, over to you. I'm interested to see what you think.

Thanks for looking xx

  1. I love the 70s glam rock of it!! Not colours I'd paint my living room in, you know, but there's a time and place for everything, and if you can't go over the top at Christmas, when can you!? Good luck getting rid of the glitter for the next three months... evil stuff!!

  6. You're right, it's hard to tell how this card makes me feel. I do like the non-traditional colors and the glitter! And that string of ornaments is a great embellishment. It's is bright, though, but I think I like it. : ) Thanks for playing with CSAYL.

  7. I love anything over the top so it looks good to me and I even wear this colour combo quite a lot so it gets my vote, a bold and bright card but not one for the faint hearted lol !
