Christmas Present

I combined two challenges sponsored by A Day For Daisies to create this card:

For some reason, this card just won't photograph clearly.  I have photographed it 7 times and this is the best shot (taken by my son who thought he could get it clear).  I might try and photograph it again tomorrow in natural daylight and see if that turns out any better.  It is night time here and so I need to use the flash for any photographs tonight.  All the other cards I have photographed tonight have photographed clear.

This morning's version is much better:

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
CRAFT Challenge - Christmas Present
A Day For Daisies - Add watercolour

I used a red patterned paper from a Christmas paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  I added some glitter tape across and down the card to imitate Christmas wrapping.  The image is from A Day For Daisies and is coloured with Distress Inks.  I stamped the inks onto a tile and then wet my brush and painted the image.  The die I used to cut the image is from Spellbinders.
