Peace on earth


Karen P set the challenge for this fortnight for the Christmas card club and she asked us to use black and white and one other colour.

I make no apology that this card is very similar to the previous one that I made for my design card for the Glory of Christmas 32: bows. I just wanted to use another felt bird, this time a turquoise blue one. I used some black and white twine that I've had for some time, sticking a bow on the place where it joins. The stamped sentiment is once again the Personal Impressions stamp, this time inked with memento tuxedo black.

As for the previous card, apologies for the quality of the photo - always difficult to capture a white card.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 32: bows


It's time for another challenge on the Glory of Christmas, so challenge 32 is all about bows - just include one on your Christmas creation. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team.

For my design card I kept it clean and simple - no designer paper in sight. I used some supplies that I bought  yesterday from Tiger in Bromley (I couldn't wait to use them and was glad that I hadn't made a card earlier for the challenge) - some lovely purple string, bows and a self adhesive felt bird. I inked the Personal Impressions sentiment stamp with memento grape jelly.
