Friday 1 August 2014


Wow - we are around to the start of another month!  That means that it is time for the August challenge at CHNC.   We would love to see your Christmas makes - and it is a good time to start preparing for Christmas if you haven't started already!

I decided I would create a card with a word art for a change.  I also decided to go non-traditional with my colour scheme!  Here is the result:

I am entering my card into these challenges:
CHNC - Patterned Paper - August
CHNC - Cute
Crafting For All Seasons - Christmas in July
Penny's Paper - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge - Christmas in July

I have used a patterned paper from Rosie's Studio.  I added some wide mesh ribbon across the card.  The image is Christmas Word - Angel from Bugaboo Stamps.  I coloured with copic markers BV02, BV000, E00, Y02, B000.  I also added some Stickles - Crystal to the wings.  The die-cut is from Tattered Lace and it is the largest of the set.  I also added some lilac pearls as corner embellishments.
