A Gift For You

This weeks challenge on the Pan Pastels blog is Stripes, and I decided to make a Christmas card using stripe backing paper for this. I love using traditional colours on my Christmas cards so Red and Green stripes were my natural choice. I've also used this lovely new stamp from Chocolate Baroque of a lovely big pile of presents, which I've coloured with promarkers in colours to match the backing paper, the sentiment comes from the same stamp sheet as the presents. I placed the backing paper onto some green card and the topper onto some red, then mounted it all onto an A5 white card base.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and you kind comments which are always appreciated.

Beautiful card Sue ! The pile of gifts image is my favourite from the two sheets that were launched together. You coloured them perfectly to match the background stipes. I hope you are having a great day, Shirleyx
