The Magic of Christmas

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It was back to work today following my long weekend.  Oh to win the lottery and not have to go to work.  I could imagine myself as a lady of leisure lol.

I have created this card to enter the DT call over at Crafting Musketeers.  I love paper crafting and mainly stick to making cards although I have been known to have a go at 3d projects.  I have been crafting for about four years now and class myself as a versatile crafter.  I love stamping but also use digi images.  I like to think that I am organised and can work to deadlines.   Thank you for considering my application.

This is a simple christmas card using a new digi image from Pink Gem designs.


The image is called 'Believe in the Magic' and can be found here at Pink Gem Designs.  For a change I made and A6 size card rather than my usual square card.  I used the precoloured image which I matted onto red mirror card after adding some distress ink around the edges.  The background card is embossed with little snowflakes and again matted onto red mirror card.  I added a bit of distress ink to the edges and did some doodling.  The paper was from my christmas scraps box and I added three red stars as embellishments. 
A simple card but will be just perfect for my nephews for christmas.

Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave me.  It is much appreciated and I love reading every one of them.

OSAAT - Use a digi
