Quick and easy Christmas from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, how's your week going? Wednesday already so its downhill until the weekend. I'm rushing off to work but I just wanted to share this card and remind you about the fabulous colour challenge over at Chocolate Baroque Challenge, pop over and check out the colour palette and all the inspiration from my teamies. There are also some lovely freebie downloads available regularly too.

This card was made using a scrap of kraft card, folded in half and stencilled with a Dutch Doobadoo brick stencil, texture paste and distress inks. I'd already made the topper using a stamp from Christmas Candlelight. I'd actually made it to put in a little Christmas decoration (I can't remember what they are called doh!! -the shaker ones full of water and glitter) but mine seem to have sprung a leak so had to go in the bin. The image was coloured with Sakura Stardust pens, I love these pens but hardly every use them these days. The sentiment is also from Chocolate Baroque, cut out and layered up with foam pads.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
