CHNC challenge 99: use something more than six months old

It's actually a week since I made a card and blogged - very unusual for me - I'm usually making cards and blogging every day - and this means that I've totally neglected A Card a Day this week. It's been a very busy week and in between lots of other things I've been printing 300 Christmas cards.

The weeks are flying by now and it really won't be that long until we need to write those Christmas cards and get them into the post, particularly any that need to be sent abroad. So, if you're struggling to get them done, why not get out those old supplies and join in my CHNC challenge 99 and use anything that is six months old.

The challenge is being sponsored by Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More who kindly supplied me with the image I've used for my card - 'gilded Christmas dove'. Everything else is at least six months old - and most of it is much, much older than that. I coloured the image with a mixture of copics, promarkers and marvy alcohol pens and used a die cut run through the cuttlebug to frame the image. This is also for Robyn's fetish 133: anything goes and for Sunday's with Santa facebook group week 43: use a digi stamp.

I've used lots of snippets, including a stray piece of sticky ribbon that needed to be used up, so this is for Pixie's crafty snippets 46 - my first visit of the week - just managing to get into the playground before the gates close, which is just as well because I wouldn't have the energy to climb over! Also for Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday: oh scrap.

The metallic baubles and swirls on the strip surrounding the ribbons are silver although some parts look gold with the flash of the photo.
