Well I must make a big effort this week and complete making my Christmas cards. The image on this card is from the Penny Black stamp 'caroling trio'. I coloured it using Promarkers and then cut part of it out and matted it onto a starry night designer paper from Wild Rose Studio. I then matted it onto purple mirri card. Lots of glitter was added around the lantern and also on the snow and stars, although I think I might have overdone the light around the lantern.
I wrapped ribbon round some contemporary Christmas paper from Papermania which in turn was wrapped round a DL size card. The stamped topper was then attached to the card. Finally a bow and a glittered stamped sentiment were added.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday - sparklers
The Cutie Pie - cute scenes and backgrounds (the topper)
Creative Craft 2 - non traditional Christmas colours
Winter Wonderland - a Christmas mouse
Lisa B Designs - all that glitters
ABC - A is for almost Christmas
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - light it up
Glitter n Sparkle - add some glitter and sparkle
The Squirrel and the Fox - summer or winter
Scrapbook Stamp Society - anything goes + optional use of glitter
