Rudolph Days and Snippet Playground Challenges

Edit-I was racking my brain trying to figure out who I saw this card by that I CASED, then Carol from "Our Little Inspirations" emailed me and it literally dawned on me that it was her card I CASED! Here is her original post. Her card is more pretty than mine, but I am still happy with how mine came out.

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm back today so I can play in two challenges, Rudolph Days and the Snippet Playground. I'm coming in just under the wire with Rudolph Days so I need to get moving here. 

My card was done with all snippets except for the card base. This was a Pinterest inspired card, so NOT my idea. I did this with my teacher buddies at one of our card making sessions and we made a lot of different ones. This is the one I am sharing today. 

Here is a little collage of some Charleston pictures that I thought you might enjoy. Just a few of the market place, some sweet baskets, the original narrow homes, the iron work and the harbor. And a picture of the steel they put through the homes after a huge earthquake years ago. That is the third photo on the left going down-some homes they "concealed" them as decorations, this house had not. 

As always thanks for stopping by and visiting with me a spell. Your comments always bring me sunshine and joy and I thank you for that! 

Crafty hugs,

Awesome card Brenda, very unusual colours but it really works, well done! Great way of using die cuts and snippets.
And love the Charleston collage of shots, fascinating so different from where I live.

You know this quilt card is near and dear to my heart as I love creating them! The little snowflake in the center looks perfect and I love the neutral color scheme! Those tiny stitch marks along the bottom are perfect in keeping with the quilt theme too and look beautiful! On another note, so glad you got to travel and enjoy yourself in Charleston! Thanks for sharing all those great photos - it looks like a wonderful place to visit :)

Gorgeous creation, Brenda ... just love kraft and white for Christmas! So 'down-home-y' don't you think? The quilt die was the perfect choice!

I love your "quilt" in tan and white! The textured cardstock gives it so much texture! Charleston is a beautiful city! I'd love to go there again someday.

This is a splendid use of the GK quilt die. Love the added & so dimensional snowflake as the center medallion. Also the color combo is very calming and beautiful. Enjoyed seeing the pictures too! TFS & big hugs. MM
