B-day X-mas card weekly challenge

PIF candy

I made this card using some of the PIF candy i won last week. I adore these large icicle die cuts. I have coloured the image in with SU marker pens and highlighted the snow and fur with stickles. Thank you Marion.




B-day X-mas Card Challenge Wk 6
This week we are using a wonderful sketch but the ever talented Simone. My first card is using a Bella image coloured in pro markers with the flowers highligted with glossy accents. The flower is prima and the sentiment from craftwork cards. Stickle highlighted swirls.







My christmas card for the challenge is using the PM Simply elegant Papers and i have stickled the flourishes. The Pip image from funky kits has been coloured using the SU bursh markers, with the baubles being glossy accented. The icicle is from the prima range.
Please join us this week in our challenge. We love to see saw lovely work using one of our sketches.
