Little Challenge Card
Good afternoon, I'm really excited today as I've managed to complete a challenge card, how sad is that? The reason for the excitement is that it's the first one I've managed to do in months! I'm really hoping that I'll be able to get back to joining in the challenges again as I've missed it so much.
Today's card is for Tilda and Co's challenge which this week is entitled "Cold as Ice"
The sun is now drifting away very fast and soon it will be as cold as ice....
Using the colours Blue & white Only . Show us how cold your projects can feel this week.
Now for those of you that have visited my blog before, you may be aware that I don't really like christmas cards very much, (not the traditional type anyway) but this card could easily be used as a christmas card. Anyway, it shows little Tilda, deep in thought (maybe wondering what Santa will bring her?) she has been coloured with my fab new pro-markers (I love these) and mounted onto a circle made with my new cuttlebug and nestability dies. The backing paper is sparkly blue and comes from my stash, I have also used some blue lacey backing paper from a 'Papercraft 4 you' paper pad by Mary Hughes, which I have cut out and popped around the edges of the card as a type of frame, at the bottom of the card is some plain, white cardstock that has been through the "swiss dots" cuttlebug folder. Some little snowflakes embellished with crystals are the finishing touch.
If I do decide to use this as a christmas card I'll pop a sentiment on the front.
