Going crackers

This is another card for my own 'let's see some bling' challenge 4 on Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog - thank you to all those who have contributed so far to this challenge - there's still time to keep up with the New Year's resolution and make a card for this week's challenge - by Friday at 22:00 UK time.

This is also for this week's challenge on Jingle Belles: pretty in pink and green and Bah! humbug 3: Christmas crackers.

This cute little stamp of the robins pulling the cracker was in a set of three I bought this morning at Hobbycraft - 60p for the set - bargain or what?! (You can see the other bargains I got here).

This was one of those 'very hard to photo' cards because the panel on the lighthand side is a very reflective foiled mirror card - it would have been easy to have taken a picture of me with the camera reflected in it, but I didn't want that - lol! My bling, of course, is that foiled mirror panel and also some silver pen work on the cracker, the rest of the image being coloured with copics.

This is also for:
