Just Us Girls #268- Photo Inspiration Challenge

It's a Photo Week, and isn't this photo perfect for the holidays, as it has so many inspirational elements.  My eyes when straight to the sled.  I have not added a sled to any of my cards as yet, so that is what I decided to do. We had a sled just like this one, and all four of us kids shared it.  I wonder what ever happened to it. 

Take a look at what the girls at, Just Us Girls did with this photo. 
You will be inspired just like I was.  This is a busy time of year, but just one more card, you can do.

Here is my card

Base, Bazzill Tawny Medium CS
Red foil paper
Water color paper from Simon Says
Distressed inks, Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy
GKD Warm Cocoa and White ink
The sled was cut with my cameo and colored with Copic Markers
Parts of the sled were colors with red and then Glossy accents applied
Stamps and sentiment from GKD Peace and Joy set
Raffia bow, gold embossing powder, red foil punch snowflake
Gold color shine, snow stencil and Texture paste

This card did not take me 5 minutes to make.  More like all afternoon.  But it really sparkles!
Thanks for stopping by to look today.  Hope you have time to be creative too. 


  1. Egads woman this is FANTASTIC! The sled came out beautifully! Love the background, reminds me of a sled leaning against an old weathered bard. The pine bough and pinecone look great and I actually love the snowy background (and you know I hate snow! lol) Love the raffia bow too, this card is really cool! ;) Very well done!

  2. OMGoodness Barbara this is awesome. Everything about this card just oozes beauty. An amazing work of art. Whoever receives this card will be so happy. Glad you joined us again this week at Just us Girls for our Photo Inspiration Challenge.

  3. Awesome inspired card! Love that sled~ Thanks for joining in at JUGS!

  4. Love your beautiful background......stunning! We used to have an old sled like that too.....what fun! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!

  5. Your card with the sled is fabulous! We also had a sled that looked like that and used to share it with my sister's and my brother! What fun times those were spending all day playing outside in the snow! Have a Blessed day!

  6. Absolutely stunning! I love that snowy background. You nailed this challenge. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

  7. Wow! I applaud you on a fantastic card design. Love the background and the pine branch is awesome. And, what a neat sled too. Reminds me of when I was a kid and used to go sliding. Of course, when I had kids of my own we all went sliding together. I am afraid the grandkids are out of luck though! LOL

  8. We had a sled similar to that one too when I was young! Super job with our challenge this week Barbara! Happy Thanksgiving too!

  9. WOW!!! This is absolutely gorgeous! You did a fantastic job on this!!
