Christmas Card for a Friend's Parents



I wanted to make a special card for my friend's parents.  They are coming up from Bournemouth and popping to see us on their way through to Cambridgeshire.  I used an Elusive Images stamp, coloured it in with promarkers, added no end of glitz to it with Sakura Stardust pens and glitter, added some fibres and embossed card for texture and used my new Martha Stewart punch as well.

This card first the criteria for the following challenges:

Pink Elephant - use your favourite mediums - mine at the moment has to be Promarkers
Cupcake Craft - Red and green
Corrosive Challenge - Red and Green
Rosie-Dee's Challenge - Red, green and a bit of bling
Creative Card Crew - Christmas
Sassy Designs - Buttons and bows - I used some new glittery gold bows and a Christmas tree button I've had for a few years but liked too much to use
Crafty Ann's Challenge - texture
Stampin' for the Week-end - Red, green and gold
Stamp Something - Glitzy somethings
The Play Date Cafe - Green, white and red.

Beautiful card Kym, I've got this stamp and have so far stayed clear of it, cos of all the colouring in. Your colouring is perfect and I am sure the recipients will love it
