Coloured with my promarkers added a touch of 3d gloss and some glitter for the wings. I pick bright zingy colours and added yellow ribbon and yellow tiny buttons. A complete change for me to not use any DP on my cards just used my MS puround the page punch.

Christmas In July

Hi hope you are starting your Christmas Cards or are you like me last year didn't do till November well I ended up in such a state that this year I promised myself to start early.
Well Mo's Digital have a great challenge along with Sketch and Stash which is Christmas in July.

I have used the sketch at Sketch and Stash and the image is from MO's she draws some wonderful images and although I love everyone don't think my bank manager would be too please if i bought them all. I saw this and just had to get. I have coloured with my promarkers and added a touch of glitter to the stocking. Papers are all from Last year and the flower too so i guess this is the neglected part of my card. Green mirri card cause we need on our Christmas cards and green pearls. The deep red card is embossed with lovely flowers but my camera and light didn't pick it up too well sorry.
Well I hope you like my card I enjoyed making it and please call again very soon.

I have made this for a friends husbands birthday this week hope he likes it. I picked the colour green as i did intend on entering it in the passion for promarkers but didnt manage to get it uploaded in time. Sentiments are chipboard. Image is coloured with my promarkers and papers are Basic Grey and Minds eye dots paper which is embossed but unfortunately my picture doesnt show. Used a touch of green mirri card to mat the image and papers and some grograin green ribbon.
