CHNC challenge extra mid-month inspiration

The seventh month of the year is now almost halfway through ... that means it's time for some more design inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for July - please visit here to see the lovely crafting of some of the team and click here to join in with your own Christmas creations - you've got until 20:00 UK time on 31 July to do so.

This is my card, which uses the sketch given for the Sunday challenge for Catch the bug's Christmas in July week, so I'm entering this there. Why not go over to Catch the bug and take part in the challenges - there are lots of prizes to be won. There's a blog hop as well.

The background paper is from a magazine freebie as is the piece that has been mounted behind the image - both were torn around perspex oval templates. The little ho ho ho have been in my Christmas stash for a long time, as has the sentiment. The card across the bottom is Hunkydory. The image was coloured with spectrum noir pens.

Cheerful stamp pad challenge 90 week 2: using a digital background

It's time for inspiration for week 2 of  the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 90: use a digital background - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge with your entries here.

Once again my design card was completely created digitally, this week using images and background papers from Digi Bear's Digi Outlet's Coosty Creations orchid beauty pack, kindly supplied by the sponsors. I added the image of the orchids with a candle floating on water with a reflection, changing the size and colour to tone with the background.
