Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 13: anything goes with ribbon


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 13: anything goes with ribbon. This challenge is being sponsored by Stitchy Bear. I used one of their digis that were kindly provided, called 'bonnet day' and coloured with spectrum noir pens.

For the A5 card base I used a piece of pearlescent A4 card that I've had for years - bought loads at the time, used some and then the rest has been in a drawer.

Other papers and bits and pieces (mainly from Papermania kits) are offcuts. I found the ribbon in a box - haven't a clue where it came from or how long I've had it.

I followed the sketch given for Feeling sketchy 78:

Another tree for CHNC challenge 161


This is my second card for CHNC challenge 161. This has only one little tree in the corner. The backing paper and the cut out panel of Rosie in her Christmas outfit are from my Daisy & friends CD, designed by Linnie the owner of Whoopsi Daisy, one of our sponsors for this challenge. The sentiment circle is from Anna Griffin and the silver stars from stash.

CHNC challenge 161: trees


The theme for today's CHNC challenge 161 is 'trees' - tall or small, just one of many ... as long as there's at least one tree on your Christmas card it's good to enter - I'd love to see you there.

For my first card I cut up three trees from a card received and panelled them on to matching mirror card. The trees are on a hammered card, so I used a white hammered card as the blank, on to which I also matted the sentiment that had been created on the computer and printed.

As is always the case, very difficult to get a photo of a card with so much mirror card, but in real life the trees as well as the surrounding mat are very shiny.
