Final Rudolph Day of 2016

Hello everyone, well where has this year gone, I am sure you all agree that it doesn't seem two minutes since the first challenge in January. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mo and her lovely teams for all the time and lovely creations that they have given us throughout the year.
Thank you all.

This card was sort of cased from a card a Lady (cant remember her name) did at a demo at Samuel Taylors.
Using the Woodware stamp Berry Wreath, which I did some other cards with a few months ago.
I have used stickles but she used Novo pearls. 
There is only one card from me in this style as to be honest I found making this quite traumatic.
 I am totally uncertain if I want to send this card to anyone, I feel I want to keep to remind me not to make it again!
See you all in January, God willing.

Hi Kath,
Happy Ridolf Day.
oh my word this card is gorgeous, and I love to bits your wonderful stamped design, and all the wonderful glittery stickles used.
It was sure worth all the troubles you had as it's so super.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

WOW - this is a stunner. I'm sure it was time consuming, the effect is wonderful and I love the shimmer.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Chris said... haven't made a dozen more of this fabulous card Kath? Can't imagine why.... worth the trauma though, it's gorgeous! Fantastic stamp and so much sparkle.

Kath said...

A beautiful card - love the wreath. When I take so long to make a card I often wonder who I want to send it to - or do I want to keep it for myself!

This is beautiful Kath, and you certainly have patience and staying power to colour all those berries on the wreath. I have had one or two like this myself where I have finished it and wondered why I started it in the first place, but I can truly say in this case it was worth all the effort. Thank you for joining in with the November Rudolph Days Challenge. x

KandA said...

Christine L said...

Kath, it's gorgeous! Your wreath is full and opulent, which is what Christmas is all about. It's sometimes good to move out of our comfort zone a little and I think your card is beautiful. Happy crafting, Sandra x

Beautiful card with all those lovely berries, well worth the time spent making it

MaryH said...

Caught a glimpse of this pretty card, while looking at your penguin card, and just had to scroll down to see it better. I can guess the trauma came from adding all the stickles berries, BUT - it's so very effective and pretty. Personally I find that the Nuvo Crystals work better for me (not so many blobs) as the stickles. It's a very nice wreath image, and you've made a perfectly splendid berry wreath using it! TFS

It might have been frustrating to make but it was totally worth it. Stunning!

Linby said...

It's beautiful but I can see it would be time consuming and a mistake would mean starting again - well done it was worth the effort.

This card is stunning! I do see what you mean with all those stickles berries...but...It was well worth the trouble!

Thanks for taking part in the November Rudolph days Challenge.

Darnell said...

Oh, God, Kath, you had me rolling with laughter right off my chair. Which isn't very nice cuz I'm old and fragilly! Well, I mean, your card is utterly brilliant, but I'd keep it as a reminder if I were you. We don't need this kind of drama. This hobby is spose to be FUN, not hard work and traumatic! Mwah! Thanks for all you did, too, to bring us the Rudy challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

Yikes! sure looks to have been a roller coaster making this one..Lots going on and so much fun!! Perhaps you could take a photo and pin it up to remind you Kath..Would be a shame not to send it to someone and all your hard work.
