Good evening everyone, and hope you are all well and warm!!! We have had some hard frosts over the last couple of days - quite hairy when you are driving one way and the car is going the other way!!!
Anyway here is my last Christmas card - bit of a last minute thing as I realised I had forgotten someone - whoooops!!!
I have used the sketch at Friday Sketchers, a great one by Aud, thanks hun, and I wanted to try it.
I also fancied trying something new so I am having a go at the Spotlight challenge from Sunflowers and Dragonflies. I used a fantastic freebie image from Tracey Malfonski at The Stamping Boutique, her images are so gorgeous so please visit her shop - here. I decided to spotlight Audrey on the reindeer.
I used my favourite watercolour crayons plus a little bit of Sakura stardust gold pen on the bells and stars. The burgundy paper is from my stash - possibly from a Crafters Companion paper pack? Then I have used some papers from another favourite Seasons Greetings CD Rom from Artylicious. The polka dot paper is from Funky Fairys but I can't give you a link as the shop is closed!!! Also another favourite some glitter card.
The jewels are from my stash as are the tiny snowflake like buttons!!! Then I punched out some snowflakes in the glitter card and burgundy paper - plus some bright pink glitter card.
So there you have it. I am also entering this card in these other challenges :-
