and I though I was finished with Christmas cards...

Hi!!!!! I hope you are all well! 6 sleeps to go until Christmas!!!

and no, I haven't wrapped the presents yet!!!! :(. I've been so busy with Alaia, going to nursery trip and Christmas party, I haven't had the chance! maybe tonight once she goes to bed.....

Do you remember a few posts ago when I said (very loudly) that I had finished with my Christmas cards.???? well, it seems  I hadn't!!! My husband asked me to make one for his manager, so as the wonderful wife I am, I did!!!!

I went for traditional colours this time and a nice image, from a clear stamp I got last year with a magazine subscription. It's from Wild Rose Studio.  I don't know why I haven't used this stamp before.... I kind of forgot about it! I'll make sure I use it next year, as it is so beautiful!

The papers are from the same collection. I decided to put a layer of white card stock embossed with dots, to break the heavily patterned papers and give it some texture.

I used an sketch from Incy Wincy Challenge. As you can see, I flipped the sketch, as I think it suits the image better to be on the right.
I also added a snowflake.... I had to put some embellishments! you know how I like my embellishments!!!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers.

I used mainly just reds and greens!
Poppy, shale (for the red shadowing), warm grey 1 (for the white bits), leaf green, pear green, blossom, sandstone and spice.

together with a white gel pen and lots and lots of glitter. 


The snowflake is a die from Joy Crafts, which I covered with glitter.
The ribbon and rhinestones are from local shops.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
