Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 103 - Pastel Christmas

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a fabulous week.  I'm back from the NEC and I am absolutely cream crackered!  I think this weekend is going to be spent snoozing and just chillin' out.


This week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss is Pastel Christmas and our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley.  So get your creative juices flowing and make a Christmas card in nice pastel colours.  If you need any inspiration nip over to the Totally Gorjuss site and see what the talented DT ladies have created.

For this challenge I decided to go with pastel pink and created this card for you:


I'm glad we had a Christmas challenge this week as I am already sooo behind with making my Christmas cards, but at least this is another one that I can add to my very small collection :os

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley "Dropping the Shopping"
Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Snowflake" and "Ribbon" collections
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy Stamps "Winter Letter Seals" from The Hobby House
Rhinestones:  The Hobby House
Flowers:  My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 R20 R30
Dog & Hair:  E37 E35 E34
Coat:  RV10 RV00
Scarf:  E41 E40 RV10
Boots:  C7 C5 C3
Shading:  C1 C0

I have used Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges of the card and the flowers have had a good dosing of Stardust Stickles.  For the main image I have highlighted all her fluffy bits with Glamour Dust.

So that's it from me for this weekend.  I'm off for a lie down and some more sleep.

Hope you have a great weekend whatever you may be doing.

See ya all later.
