Ginger spoon

'Ginger spoon' is the name of the digital image that I've used - it was supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, sponsors of my CHNC challenge 85 this week, so this is another card for that.

This is also for Kerry's sketch for the fortnightly challenge for the Christmas Card Club (names of those involved on my sidebar - if you're interested in joining, please contact Clare):

The main background paper is DCWV and the other pieces are from my offcuts - so this is the first opportunity of the week to join in with Pixie's crafty snippets 33, also Hiding in my craft room 58: super scraps Saturday, Squiggle stamps: stash attack and Waste not Wednesdays 28.

The scalloped circle is a nestie die cut. I distressed edges with brown corduroy ink and added some Prima gems and a piece of spotty ribbon. The image was digitally coloured in Paint before printing.

This is also for:
