Christmas Cheer

I'm back!  Not that I ever completely left - I still managed to sneak in as a Guest Designer for a few challenges, but I'm back as a full time Designer at Crafting for all Seasons and it's time for a new challenge.  The theme for the next fortnight is Christmas in July.

I have made a card using an image from Meljens Designs who are our sponsor for this challenge:


The image is called Christmas Cocoa and I have coloured it with my ProMarkers.  I have used papers from the Dovecraft Vintage Back to Basics collection and inked the edges, the border is an EK Success edge punch and I have made a Poinsettia using a Spellbinders die.  My sentiment is a LOTV stamp and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

City Crafter Challenge Week 221 - Christmas in July!
Deep Ocean Challenge 82 - Lots of Layers
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 45 - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 205 - Handmade Flowers
