Two Challenges .....

I have combined two challenges for this card,

Allsorts Challenge week 13 is Gro's challenge, "vintage", the winner will recieve 6 promarkers (my favourite!!).

Basic Grey Challenges are back, this week there is a sketch by Tara G, its a really great sketch to follow, they are not offering weekly prizes, instead 5 lucky people chosen at random from this challenge will go through to the monthly prize drawing which has been sponsored by sponsor Simon Says Stamp.

I have used Baisic Grey Archaic papers and element stickers, Edwin coloured with promarkers, PM cardstock, ribbon, gems, rub on, brad, brown ink pad. I have inked the edges of the papers with a brown ink pad and used a distressing tool on some of the layers to give a worn look.
I thought the muted shades of greens and browns along with the distressing gave the card a worn vintage look.

I will be back later with another card, thanks for stopping by,

Angela xx

This is a lovely card Angela and so is your Santa. It is such a gentle image and you have really done him justice. I was just thinking I must make more xmassy cards now or I will never get them all done. I am so hooked on challenges and I've been trying to do cards suitable for children so that I could give some to my daughter. I'm sure lots of her friends have little ones now.

Have a nice weekend,
