Black and White Christmas

Wow, I can't believe this is my 71st post! I'm very excited this morning as I am hosting my first Hero Arts 90 minute scramble on the HA Flickr group. The participants have 90 minutes to make a card based on the task set by the host of the scramble. I have participated in many scrambles in the past and it feels strange not rushing off and making a card!
My challenge is based on this inspiration photo taken at Ambiance in Victoria Market last month - Yes, Christmas decorations are up in the shops!

The rules of the Scramble:
Make a card with at least one HA stamp based on the challenge. The challenge is to make a Black and White (Silver, cream and kraft allowed) themed Christmas card within 90 minutes. 

Here are my photos made for the challenge to get the participants going.
Since Moxie Fab World is having a Christmas card challenge for World Card Making Week, I'm submitting these cards for the challenge. Hero Arts just announced details of their October competition and the theme is Holiday Cardmaking. Perfect timing!

  1. Great scramble today. Your cards are quite lovely.

  2. Yes! It was a very fun scramble. Thanks for the details on the chevron/snowflake stamp. I see now that the shine comes from Stickles.
    ...and thanks again for hosting!

  3. Very elegant! I've never participated in a scramble - I'm a procrastinator! But maybe the challenge would encourage me to be more spontaneous!

  4. Hey Cecilia! Thanks for linking this up to the Moxie Fab World. I just wanted to give you the head's up that you need to load this card up to our World Card Making Day Gallery in order to be eligible to win. Thanks and good luck!

    1. Thanks Cath! My fault for not reading the instructions properly!

  5. Love the black and white cards! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have posted two of my Scrapfest projects so far and will post the other eight as I finish them. Keep checking back!
