Jasmines Birthday Invitations/ABC Challenge

Yes, finally, I managed to get a card done for this weeks ABC challenge - Holiday. Not sure if ill get any more done, but its a start. I have used some papers from HOTP and the image is one of the new Forever Friends christmas images. I adore this little bear.
I used my aquarelle pencils to colour in and glossy accents to highlight the baubles, although you can't really see it that clearly from this photo.

I finally charged the battery on my camera and managed to download photos of Jasmines invitations. I still don't seem to be able to get very clear photos, but you can get the idea. If you right click onto the picture you can get a clearer view.

This is one of my favourite Tilda stamps, she is so sweet in her party dress. I used my sakura pens to colour in, watering them down like paints. It is a glitter pen but it doesn't really show up on this picture.

I used the beautiful Party tilda from last months Magnolia Stamp club and the paper is from a Trimcraft Christmas pack. The tilda was coloured in using my Aquarelle pencils by Faber-Castell. They are my favourites.
