It's a Scramble Blog Hop with LTSCB

 
Some parts of the world are experiencing cold weather and some are experiencing warm weather. Kinda scrambled, wouldn't you say?! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog is excited to bring you our "It's A Scramble" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by the awesome River City Rubber Works! Come hop with us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to their online store!

As you hop, collect letters at each stop and be sure to leave each designer some love. Once you have collected all the letters, unscramble them and email your guess to ltscb@mail.com - then all the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the River City Rubber Works gift certificate!

All of the LTSCB designers are creating Anything Goes inspiration projects. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up an Anything Goes project for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guess and to link up your project so we can make sure you're given two entries into the drawing!**

Please note that even though this is an Anything Goes challenge, our normal rules apply. :)

My card was created using a fantastic vintage-style image called Noel Bugle. I actually received both a colored and uncolored image which was great! I used the colored image and then covered it with Gold and Gunmetal Stickles. I used Green and Gunmetal on the tassels and cord and Green and Gold on the Noel and diamonds. I wanted my card to have a vintage look so I added Vintage Silver Frantage as a frame around the image. Tim Holtz Tinsel Ribbon gives a little more shine and is fitting since tinsel is used at Christmas. For added embellishing I chose another RCRW image from a set called Pine and Holly. This set also comes with both colored and uncolored images. I again used a colored holly image and cut it out by hand. It was a little tricky since it is so small and the leaves are so pointy. I used Xmas Red and Green Stickles to brighten it up. I cut 3 of them as you will see in the pictures. Square gems that I turned so that they would look like diamonds to match the image completes my embellishments. For an added vintage look I used Evergreen Bough and Vintage Photo on the edges of the cardstock. Here are the pics:


For those of you looking for the letters to unscramble, I have no letter-just a project. Have fun.


Here are your blog hop stops:

We hope you are enjoying the hop! If you get lost along the way or if you landed here in the middle of the hop and want to join in the fun, head on over to the Love To Scrap!Challenge Blog to read all the details and start from the beginning!

Happy Hopping!
