GDT at CRAFT Challenge

Hi there folks, well its my second week as GDT over at CRAFT challenge and this week we have a really fun theme for you, we want to see a card with a removable item! We have not one but two fab sponsors this week so 2 prizes up for grabs. For one lucky winner there is a prize from My Creative Classroom

I can really recommend the courses from My Creative Classroom as i did one earlier in the year and it was fab-u-lous so someone is in for a real treat! There is also another great prize of 3 digi stamps from Bows and Berries.

Now this challenge had me rummaging through my craft room for my thinking cap lol. I was tempted to make something with a little gift attached but didn't have a lot of time for any beading so I decided to make a card with a removeable tag. I've used papers from GCD Joyeaux Noel pad, matted on kraft and the main image is a cute digi  called 'Festive Birdhouse' from  our sponsor Bows and Berries

The image is coloured with promarkers and I've added glossy accents to the fairy lights and polar white flowersoft and glamour dust to the snow on the roof. I've cut the image out and popped it on a little pocket made using Nesties. Here's another pic showing the tag too (sorry the colours are rubbish, my camera has bleached the colour for some reason)

The sentiment is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque and the ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons and Joanna Sheen. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft your Passion: Tag you're it
Papertake Weekly: Dreaming of your favourite colour Christmas 
(I love traditional Christmas colours)

  1. Those papers are a lovely combination with the muted colours & I love the way your gingham ribbon works with them. Those colours are superbly traditional too & the fairy lights really pop with the Glossy Accents. Love your snowy overhang & the way you've fastened that tag. Super idea for the removable part.
