When I saw Casology's key word I decided it wasn't for me, same when I saw the Colour Q palette. But as is sometimes the case, in the middle of the night, when I couldn't sleep an idea gradually emerged.
A stamp that had come with a magazine, or similar, that I thought I'd never used, along with it's pun-ridden sentiment. A palette so that is so far from traditional Christmas it just couldn't work, and layout on which a twist could be put.
So here's how I explain my "Silly" entry. To me the challenges felt silly, which means, I didn't think I could do them justice. I was silly, for not believing in myself. Whilst the palette and the image felt silly, they could be worked into the seemingly silly - a tasteful Christmas card.
The image is from Crafter's Companion. Coloured with alcohol markers (silly me for having a stash of these, and almost never getting them out). Put into tags, and chisel tip of a marker dragged around the edge. Clarity Holly & Ivy stamp in the background, stamped thrice into a rough circle.
See what you think. I love it :-)
