A Molly Mittens reminder....

Hi Susan here...

Today we are reminding you of the ongoing challenge over at Fussy and Fancy. The theme is a sketch designed by Mindy see below....
Challenge 32
For full details of the challenge call across HERE and check out some fabulous inspiration from both designs teams.

Now for my card....

I know, some of you now will be giving a gasp.....but I made this because Tickled Pink Stamps have begun a new monthly challenge devoted to Christmas creations. Lets face it you can never have too many cards.
My backing papers are from a 6x6 scrapbook of designer paper by Kay & Co. I have distressed the edges using distress inks from Tim Holtz. The punched border across the middle has been punched using  a punch from Fiskars, I used a satin sheen card. My ribbons and pearls are from our local market. The poinsettia is from our local market, it was too tall to go onto my card so I pulled it apart and cut away the thick stem and then stuck it all back together again keeping it pinched in the centre.

This beautiful image designed by Marina Neira and available from Tickled Pink Stamps is called Molly Mittens Christmas. I have used Promarkers to colour the image and then gently inked the outer edges of the topper and mat and layered onto a punched edged red and cream card. I then added glitter to the edges of the topper.

I love making these statement pieces and the sentiment was made on my computer. the edges have been glittered with stickles.
