A Christmas Card

I am so far behind with my cards this year and think i may end up buying some but today I made a card with a new stamp I bought recently. called Snowy Postcard by Stampendous.
I stamped in Versafine onto white card then used Antique Linen distress ink to make it look a bit aged like an old postcard would do. I used my Graph'it pens to colour the little bit of holly and berries and then used a die to cut it out. The die is one from a set by Sue Wilson, it's from her French collection and is called Provence. I used another from the same set to do the back layer which I cut in half so it looks like a full piece behind the main image.  The other stamp is one from Polkadoodles, again stamped in verafine and coloured with the same pens, the white berries look very white but they are now almost translucent as the glue has fully dried.  I coloured some white ribbon with the same red pen and tied a bow, I also used the pen on the gems so everything ties in well together.

I'm entering this into the following challenges

1. Delicious Doodles - Traditional Christmas
2. Simply Create Too - Snow, Snow, Snow
3. Aud Sentiments - Use a sentiment for a December holiday.

CAS at Polkadoodles

The challenge over at Polkadoodles this time is CAS, I'm not too good at leaving lots of space so this is a challenge for me too, I've used one of the digi images off the Festive Hollybobs.
I have used my Graph'it and Copic pens and even coloured my ribbon to match. The blue border is just a piece of white card which I've coloured with the same blue pen as the little girls hat and coat.  I don't have a full set of either the Graph'it or the Copic but I like both for different reasons and I'm sure over time I'll end up with a lot more!

Please pop over and have a look at what the rest of the team have done and maybe even visit their blogs just to say hi.

P is for ............... at CD Sunday with Wynn

Good morning, time for another challenge over at CD Sunday this week. We are doing Wynn's choice of P is for ........ and I have chosen to use a panda. I needed a card for my OH birthday and thought this would be perfect, it's from an old cd called A Walk on the Wild Side from Cupcake Crafting so I don't think it will still be available as that company doesn't exist any more. It's a shame as the art work is stunning and perfect for the men in our lives.
I have used one of the older edge dies from Spellbinders with it's matching corner, the sentiment is from one of the Work and Play cd's from the fabulous Polkadoodles, check out the cd's and downloads so useable.

I am entering this into the following challenges;

1. A Crafty Mess - Anything Goes
2. Craft for the Craic - Birthday
3. Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday goes
