It's our last challenge of 2017 at Aurora Wings and our new theme is
To be honest, I was a little stumped this time since my last two challenge inspiration projects have been just that, so I had to dig deep. In fact, I started 3 different projects before finally deciding what to do. So here's the winner! I've made a sweet little shadowbox using the adorable Christmas Kittens available HERE on AW.com and HERE on Etsy. I've been dying to color them up since they arrived a few weeks ago. Aren't they the cutest EVER?
Here's a closeup of the two with the tree prior to gluing on the face plate of the shadowbox from LaLa Land I've had for several years. They're colored with Copics and fussy cut and popped within the shadowbox. The design papers are from the 6x6" Christmas pad from Graphic 45. The "rug" is stitched felt ribbon I also trimmed the outside of the box with. I scored some card stock to fashion a baseboard and added and cute little box of ornaments from Michael's. The sticker pressies are JoLee's, the glitter sentiment up top by Recollections and the wreath and garland are fashioned from Tim Holtz greenery.
Here's a side view. The project could hang or sit on a shelf with the detachable stand.
And here's another kitty (from the same digi HERE), a little like Fanta, eh Mitzi? Love love, LOVE these KITTIES and there's lots more HERE. OH, don't fret doggie lovers. There's an adorable new(ish) set of Christmas Chihuahuas available, HERE too. Now it's time for me to start my own decorating. Hope my kitties behave.
You've got lots of time to join us for this last challenge of 2017, because we're taking a bit of a holiday break. Hope you can have some fun with us because you have until January 13th, 2018 to get your projects in. Be sure to visit the Challenge Blog for fabulous inspiration from my Stella teamies and we all wish you a warm and wonderful holiday season. In the meantime...
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
