Thank you

This card was made with some more of the materials I received from Carolyn for the swap on Crafts by Carolyn forum.

I coloured the stamped image with copics and brushed the white doily and the embossed creamed card with peacock feathers distress ink.

I used the sketch for Seems a little sketchy 33:

CAS card using a piece of Teresa Collins Christmas home background paper and PB caroling penguins stamped with memento tuxedo black, coloured with copics. Flowers were white, coloured with copic pen so that they matched the hats. 'Harmony' was generated on my dymo letratag. This is another card for my CHNC challenge 113: one word is sufficient.

I used Hayley's sketch for Sunday stamps 36:

CHNC challenge 113: one word is sufficient

For my CHNC challenge 113 I'm asking for one word to be used on a Christmas card - that word can be repeated, but no other words.

For my card I've used the word JOY, printing out 'Amalia's joy banner' digital image that was kindly supplied by Dilly Beans, one of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 113. I coloured it with copics, die cut and edged with a red copic.

Designer papers were some that came with a magazine - some were offcuts.

Why is it that colours sometimes look different in the photo to what they do irl - the JOY banner looks a bit odd here - oh well!

I used the sketch given for Christmas challenges with sketches 61 - please click on the link to see the challenge blogpost with the sketch.
