Hi all today I have a Christmas card to show that I made for the following challenges:
I have based the colour of my card on the inspirational photo from Anyone For Anya's challenge, I found Kathy's Waffle Sketch File Challenge while visiting blog friends, I really liked the look of the sketch (above) and thought I would try it out. I am determined to get as many Christmas cards done as possible from now on so I found some Christmas themed Challenge blogs, also while visiting.
For my card I have used an image from TGF called Toby Santa, some of you will probably remember this little cutie from a few weeks back. The colour theme was a little challenging for me as I have never done a grey coloured image before, I have been so impressed and inspired by what I have seen that I really wanted to try it out, I am quite pleased with the effect.
I used my Scalloped Nestie Circles both for the image and the stamped LOTV sentiment, I also used a rounded corner punch and my SU word punch for the top three strips. The paper is from the V&A Linen Christmas pad, the large black strips I have glittered with Silver Mica fine glitter, I did this by using double sided tape, I added clear rhinestone gems to the top 3 strips. I found a Holly stamp which I used on some of the bp scraps, cut them out and added Fairy Dust Glitter for the berries, I also added some to Toby's hat and beard.
I hope that you like my card and thank you so much for visiting me, I will be seeing you later today hugs to all.
