A Christmas Card Just for You....

Hi Susan here....

Well I have had some time to make a 'just for fun card' and here it is....
I have used a sketch from Stampavie and More, and I have used all backing papers from my stash and bits and pieces drawer. I have mat and layered onto a pastel pink card all the backing papers. All the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles, The ribbon and pearls are all from my local market. My sentiment was made on my computer.

I have fallen in love with using these gorgeous stamps, this Tilda is called 'Gift Giving Tilda' and I coloured her in using Pro-Markers. Just look at those clogs, I think they are so cute. I have gently inked the background in pink and green and then distressed and glittered the edges of the topper before mat and layering onto a pink scalloped background.

My flowers are all handmade using a five petal punch, I have inked the edges of the petals with a pink ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
