Satsuma and Chocolate

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well this weekend? It is Sunday, and that means another new theme at Winter Wonderland! This week is a colour challenge, and the colours this time are: 'Satsuma, Gold and Chocolate'. Yummy, reminds me of Terry's Chocolate Oranges.

Our sponsor this time round is the lovely Regina from Cutting Cafe, who is offering three of her digi-kits to the winner!

We on the DT also had the option to use a Christmas Stocking on our project, so I chose to use my little Christmas Stocking Bear image, available at Delicious Doodles. I coloured this in with my trusty watercolour pencils and layered it as normal with foam pads.

I followed one of Anne's old sketches for this card, and just tweeked it here and there to fit my idea. I have used Funky Hand papers for the card base, which I printed in brown on orange cardstock, and also printed a Funky Hand snowflake paper in brown, but on white this time so the flakes were white.

The oval frame was generated in my page-makeup programme, and I cut it out by hand, along with the 'old gold' card that I layered it on. Haven't got a decent sized oval die (boohoo!) The flower is made with punches, inked and scored for depth, hope you can see from this photo. The ribbon is from the stash.

Righty then, now you get to pop over to Winter Wonderland and mooch through my DT sisters' samples - yummy stuff!!

I'm off now to enter this into this month's Funky Hand 'Get Funky' challenge, which is (luckily) an open theme this time! Sorry it's Christmas guys. . .!
