Just the one challenge today, sorry about that - just haven't had any time to do much else.
This card is going into the Midnight Madness challenge, a lovely sketch again ladies - keep 'em comin'!!
I used one of my own images for this card, the Holly sprig - available from my shop Delicious Doodles - and kept the rest of the card within the Holly theme, using backing papers from an Artylicious cd. The text paper in the circles is by Tinker & Co, with green inked daubed round the edges.
For the Holly, I printed it out three times, and inked the colours on for a richer colour than my usual pencils, the layered it up with foam pads, and added some glistening snow. This has been layered onto white card with a printed red border, and then some pearlescent gold card trimmed with some border scissors.
I made the buckle myself, using a circle punch, some more ink and some Pebeo Touch metallic paint, and the ribbon is actually a paper ribbon sticker.
Lastly I popped some red metallic brads at the top to finish it off.
If you haven't checked them out at Midnight Madness you really oughta - there is so much going on over there, I have a job keeping up with them! They have a blog hop starting on Dec 8th, which I shall be keeping an eye out for!
Right - lunch is calling - I'm off to see what I can rustle up!
