A new challenge at Polkadoodles!

Good morning folks, as always I've got a smile on my face as its Friday at long last and we've got a brand new challenge starting at Polkadoodles so pop on over and check out the fabby prize and all the gorgeous projects to inspire you from  my very talented teamies! 

For my DT project I've used papers, some of the precoloured elements, sentiments and a digistamp coloured from the fabulous Angelberry Christmas CD. This cd is absolutely crammed full of gorgeous goodies and I've used some of my favourites on this card. I've used a shaped card from Which Craft? and two of the backing papers from the cd, all distressed with a craft knife, distress ink and  some faux stitching around the edges. 

For the front  I made some little rolled paper roses and added some precoloured holly leaves from the cd.. I made a wrap to hold the card closed edged with a MS punch I die cut the sentiment and distressed with distress ink, and added some more holly, gingham ribbon and a button from my stash.

here's a pic of the inside, all the little embellies are coated with glossy accents.

The beautiful Angel is coloured with Graph'It Markers. I've added some faux pearls to the front to finish off

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: decorate the inside of the card
Creative Belli: ribbon and pearls
Creative Card Crew: Christmas
Designed to Colour: anything goes
Little Miss Muffet: We wish you a merry Christmas
Paper Shelter: stitching 

Thanks so much for visiting, hope to see you again soon
