Another Couple!


Hooray!  I've managed to make 2 more Christmas cards this weekend (though I should be making an 18th Birthday cards for a colleague at work's daughter's birthday but I'm on a roll lol).  I saw that Amy has a  new Challenge Blog The Crafty Purple Frog & when I saw the images that she had in her shop (I didn't even know she had a shop) I fell in love, so I thought I'd give it a go.  For this card I used "Pointsettia Fairy" decoupage, the papers are from my stash - I have highlighted the image with Sakura glitter pens but unfortunately you can't see that from the photo.  To finish off I made a lace rosette (the gem is from a broken bracelet), I added ribbon & a peel off.  I kept the card quite simple as I didn't want to detract from the beautiful image :)


The challenges for this card:
Paper Sundaes - Something from your Stash (papers, peel off)
Moving Along with the Times - Fairies or Fantasy
Alphabet - W for Wings
Karber - Fantasy (this is a new challenge I've just found)
Daring Card Makers - Christmas Card for World Cardmaking Day


Right on to the 2nd Card:  I used another one of Di's fabulous digi downloads (I told you I couldn't choose lol), this cute image is called "Penguin Christmas Tree".  I coloured the image with ProMarkers & edged it with Glamour Dust, I used Polar White Flower Soft on his hat & finished off with some gems, ribbon, bell, & a greeting.  The papers were lurking in my stash again.
More challenges:
Die Cut Dreams Christmas - Glitter, Ribbons & Gems
Sparkle - Christmas Movie (optional)
Stamptacular - Layer it On
Gingerloft - All that Glitters or Blings
Penny's - Circles
