CHNC challenge 181: include some gold or silver (or both)


For CHNC challenge 181 starting today I'm asking you to include some gold or silver (or both) on your Christmas creations - for more details and to see the sponsors, please click on the link.

I've kept my card simple with gold mirror card for the background, three gold foiled vellum squares some gold and silver glittered Christmas puddings and some silver sentiment strips.

What a nightmare trying to get a half-decent photo when the background is totally mirror card!

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 33: celebrate


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 33, where the theme is 'celebrate' - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge, which is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, adding the sentiments digitally, mounting the image on silver mirror card.

I've used Bugaboo Stamps 'AKV too Wedding - cut cake', kindly supplied by the sponsor, colouring with spectrum noir pens. The embossed background paper is some that I've had for ages - quite a bundle of similar papers that haven't been touched and I'm not sure why, because they are lovely. I found a scrap of 'congratulations' vellum that I torn to put over the silver mirror offcut. The glittered spotty ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, part of a prize I received for winning at the Allsorts Birthday week.
