Dare To Be Sassy Thursday 8/30/2012

Time for another Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge at Sassy Studio Designs but first things first. Today is my third wedding anniversary! Hurray! It's been a wonderful three years and is my first and only marriage. I'm sure we'll have many more.

Sassy Studio Designs is also having a design team call. If you love SSD and think you would like to be a part of a wonderful design team you should give it a shot. They accept designers of all levels. Click here for all the details.

Now...onto the DTBST challenge. This week's challenge is our monthly Christmas challenge. Create a project with a Christmas theme.

I used images Sexy Santa, Reindeer Games, and Frostina. Each image was colored w/Copics and fussy cut. I made this center step card starting with 5  1/2" x 11" paper. I changed the side measurements to 1 1/2" and made the center 2 1/2." The paper is from the Paper Studio. I added multiple mats and some machine stitching along w/foam tape to create tis masterpiece. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart and cut w/a Spellbinders Nestabilities. The finishing touch was to add bling and some glitter pen accents.
