Craftymess Challenge "X-mas with non traditional colours"

Morning blogger friends
and
THANK YOU for stopping by.


It is today that the new challenge over on Craftymess challenge blog.

The theme for this challenge is : drumroooool lol
Christmas, with NON traditional colours...

When I first saw the theme I thought, WOW that was early, but truthfully, as many of you will agree, its never to early to start your christmas cards. I make about 60 christmas cards a year, so that works out at more then one a week. So for me, this challenge is a good way to pull out the christmas stach and get started. And now that I have it out, Ill be making a few more, just to get ahead of myself.

Here is my DT card for this challenge:


 I used an old paper pack from god knows where, but never fails. The papers are acctually more purple then blue, but its hard to see on the picture. I stamped my favorite christmas stamp, added a bit of colour and glitterglue and matted. The little flags are just little strips I cut out and shaped with a bonefolder and attached with pinflair. The little dot boarder, is made using a white gelpen.

Hope you all like my card, and I look forward to see all your creations for the challenge.

  12. Lovely card. I've always faux stitched my edges, never thought of dotting them. The dotted lines work really well and look fab.
