Double Challenge .....

There is a great new sketch this week at Just Magnolia week 19 by super talented Rach, which I have combined with Stampin' for the Weekend challenge 12 colours "pink and grey". I have moved the sentiment to the circle at the bottom and added a bow with a charm.

I have used Sweetheart Tilda coloured with shimmer paints, watercolour pencils and promarkers, papers are BG Perhaps which were just perfect for this challenge, DCWV cardstock, nesties, swiss dots and snowflakes embossing folders, ribbon, charm, and embossed circle with greeting from craftwork cards.

It is another Christmas card, I keep sneaking them in, slowly my stash of Christmas cards is building up. I am quite pleased how well the colours have worked for a Christmas card, it gives a fresh modern look as I do tend to go for more traditional colours.

Thanks for stopping by,

Angela xx

Such a pretty card, Angela! Love the pink and grey for Christmas. I'm trying to make my first Christmas card of the year (....I say trying, as it's just not happening at the moment, LOL!) and I'm using that fab Cuttlebug folder too! I really hope you try out for 'Your Next Stamp' DT call, as your cards are stunning! Good luck and fingers crossed if you do! Hugs, Sem x

This is a really pretty card Angela. I love the colours and that Tilda is very pretty. I really need to make an effort to start making xmas cards. I have one or two but some of the challenges are still summer or similar! I have an idea for a Penny Black one tho.
