Allsorts Challenge

This week the challenge over at the Allsorts Challenge blog is Let's Make A Start On Christmas. This is something that I have been doing since the beginning of the year, but there is still room for more. For my card I have used stamps and dies from Sue Wilson by Creative Expressions, which I bought at Ally Pally in September. I stamped onto some white card stock with Memento ink and then cut out and coloured the images using pro markers. Next I cut a square of white card and stamped a branch onto the card using Gathered Twigs distress inks. I then mounted onto some red and green card stock and finally onto a 7x7 white card base, then mounted the flowers and holly with glue gel. Finally I added the Merry Christmas which was a Crafters Companion die from the Traditional Christmas collection.

I am also entering this into the Perfectly Created Chaos challenge which at the moment is Anything Goes.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Simply gorgeous with the beautiful flowers and that elegant die sentiment. I love SW dies, but never manage to use them so effectively as you've done with this set. Great to add one more card to the Christmas stash. TFS

I was just taking a look at the Allsorts blog post when I saw this beautiful card and had to pop over to leave you a comment. I love that you've used red, gold and green, such traditional Christmas colours. The flowers are exquisite and I really like the font on the sentiment. Sandra X
