THE MERRY XMAS CHALLENGE - #25 RIBBON

I was very honoured to be asked to join the DT for
THE MERRY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!
I love making Xmas cards so of course I said 'Yes'!
So my thanks to Janis the challenge owner.
And here for you is my first DT post!
The theme for this challenge is RIBBON
I love the Scandinavian Christmas themes so that is what I chose to do.
I started with a 5.5x5.5 kraft card base with fold at the top.
I used elements from a paper pad in my stash filled with toppers and embellishments...
with a Scandinavian theme. Perfect!!
I finished off with a small red bow on the tag sentiment.
I hope you like what I did.
Thanks for stopping by today and see you next week!!

Hugs,

JUST FOR FUN...

Hello lovely people!
I wanted to get some practise in on my colouring skills.
I have been purchasing classes over at KIT & CLOWDER for over two years!
I have not completed one single class!
I am not lazy just bothered really my work will not be 'good enough'..
How many times Alyce has said never to think that way lol.
So its time to get down to it!
This card is 'just for fun' and not part of any class.
The image is from LACY SUNSHINE - its RORYS CATTAILS
I used Copics to colour her.
I think she turned out pretty well and I am happy with it.
Happy crafting!!

GET CREATIVE CHALLENGE #60 - CAS

Hello!
Welcome to challenge #60 at..
GET CREATIVE CHALLENGES!
The Theme for this challenge is...
CAS
Many thanks to the following sponsors for their support of our challenges....

SPONSOR #1
https://www.etsy.com/shop/AngiesStamps?ref=shop_home_edit
 SPONSOR #2
https://www.etsy.com/shop/DrawnbyKrista
SPONSOR #3
https://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps
My project for this challenge is....
I used an image from ALL DRESSED UP STAMPS...
LITTLE FLOWER GIRL
I love these stamps!
I made a CAS card, colouring the image with Copics.
I layered the front of the card in a pretty paper with pink flowers.
I die-cut the image and adhered it to the front of the card.
I put a 'frame' around the image, this was part of the die cut. And I used foam pads
to put in place, giving it a 3D look.
I put a pink pearl in each of the 4 corners and stamped a sentiment and placed that
at the bottom right corner.
Hope you like my inspiration.
I hope you will join in with our challenge.
We look forward to seeing your lovely creations.
Do also visit my teamies to see their projects to inspire you.
Thank you for visiting today.
