Christmas sentiment.....

Hi Susan here....

It is time for Group B to give you a mid challenge reminder for Fussy and Fancy. The challenge is 'Christmas Without Red and Green'. For full details of the challenge and how to enter the current challenge click here! Our sponsor is StampInsanity! One lucky winner will receive Holiday Princesses Complete Digi Set. Don't forget to check out the two posts for some fantastic inspiration from the design team. Come and join us and have some fun!!

Now for my card...
I used a fantastic sketch from Mojo Monday, I absolutely loved this sketch the moment I saw it, and you all know me by now, I love using sketches!!!
My backing papers are from a 12x12 paper pad from HOTP called Sarapapers. Some of the most beautiful papers, I have distressed all the edges and glittered them with stickles. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make a nice little punched border between the two papers on the topper. The lace, ribbon and pearls are all from our local market.

My sentiment is a combination of two, designed by the very talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs, first a frame and then the word art. I used Promarkers to colour the border of the frame and mat and layered it onto a white card, then I distressed and glittered the edges.

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobby Craft, the leaves I made I know what you're all saying....the challenge was no red or green, I know and I appologise for this, I had added the flowers and berries and then starting making my leaves, when I was placing the leaves onto the card thats when I realised my 'boo boo', please don't make the same mistake as me!!! Saying that though I do like the splash of red on my card so alls well with the world!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
