Aud Sentiments Challenge #39 Winter Card


Hi everyone, hope you are all well. As you are reading this I am just finishing my first week in a new job. It was not my choice as my previous place of work is due for closure and the same type of job was not available in travelling distance. Having said that it would appear that I have landed on my feet - I have been job shadowing and have thoroughly enjoyed myself!

Anyway on to the next challenge at Aud Sentiments and we would like you to use.

Winter Sentiments.

We are sponsored by


and the winner will receive.....


... how great is that.

Here is my card........


I have used the Little Festive Robins which have been coloured with watercolours. The papers are from the Polka Doodles CDrom Magical Winter, they have been distressed and inked. The ribbon is from my stash - green with a thinner gold sparkly ribbon on top. I have used the Hero Arts Dotty Flowers to make my flower - I stamped on to old book paper and used TH distress inks and used a brad for the centre.

Have fun with the challenge and please check out my team mates for some more inspiration - their links are on my left sidebar.
I am entering the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamps and Show - Things with Wings,
Christmas Inspirations - Flowers/ Birds,
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes + Sentiment,
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes, and,
Polks Doodles Challenge - Handmade flowers,

Hugs
