Global Design Project #GDP016

Is it crazy that Christmas is THIS WEEK? My goodness, time flies when you're having fun, right?! We have lots of fun here on the Global Design Project, thank you so much for supporting us and playing along.

Due to Christmas and New Year celebrations, we thought it best to run this challenge for two weeks. This challenge will close on the 2nd January 2016 and the next one will commence on the 4th January 2016.

Our next challenge is 'Case the Designer' and we just love what Bibi has given us to CASE this week:

How does this challenge work?

There are many definitions of CASE (Copy And Steal Everything, Copy And Share Everything), but in this situation the definition is

Copy And Selectively Edit. This means you can be inspired by ANYTHING on this card. What inspires you in this card to make it your own, what will you copy and what will you edit?

Here are some ideas of what you could be inspired by -

Theme - Christmas, Shaker Card or Waterwash Background.

Layout - Portrait style with circle and sentiment in the centre

Colours - Blues with Whisper White and Gold (you could use colours that are similar, doesn't have to be exactly the same)

Stamp set and/or framelits - Holly Jolly Greeting and Christmas Greeting Thinlits Dies

Remember to try and make this project your own. It's an inspiration challenge.
