Just Christmas & Birthdays Challenge 17


Ok don't panic I haven't gone off my rocker, but after last December and the mad rush to get cards done, I thought that I'd be clever and start making them early.

On Just Christmas & Birthdays challenge blog, there is a lovely sketch to follow and also a lovely prize for the lucky winner.

The image for this card I've used WOJ Charlie and I've coloured him using my promarker pens and did the highlights with my white inkssentials pen.

The dp is DCWV Christmas stack.

The sentiment is also from WOJ and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.

The star embellie is a quickutz die that I ran through my Bigshot with very thick cardboard.
