MIM Modern Whimsey

Here is my last entry into the Make It Monday challenge for this week.  Since this style does not come easy to me, I had to conquer the challenge.  I saw a very similar card to this from a Stampin' UP! project blog and loved it and thought it qualified for the modern whimsey style even though it did not have banners or flags on it. I totally put my own spin on it by making it a holiday card and using different focal point elements on it.   I think the layers of the tag frame, the washi tape elements, the twine wrapped around, the stamping on the vellum layer, the snowflake, the candy canes, and the sweet little rhinestone accents all come together in a very whimsical way.  The chevron print adds a bit of the modern twist to this.  I whipped this up in less than 30 min. which I did not do for the other couple of entries.  They took way more time.  Wish my photography gave it more justice.  It is evening on a dreary rainy day, so lighting is not great.

It was fun participating this week.  Now off to make Christmas gifts.

Paper: SU! kraft and Christmas designer papers, PTI vellum and shimmer white
