Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 16 December 2011

Well it's time for the last Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge for 2011.  This time the challenge is "make a gift".
I make a number of calendars for people for Christmas at work as I cannot afford to buy things for everyone.  I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Goth Night".  It took me a while to get her but she's one of my favourites.  I have splashed out and used some of my Tim Holtz paper pad my eldest son bought me last Christmas.  I have used a few bits and pieces but thought it was time to carry on and use some more.  I have distressed all the edges of the paper with Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose distress ink pad.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and also my white gel pen.  I have finished the card off with some pearls, lace, Marianne's Designs die-cuts, flowers, calendar pad and cord to hold up the calendar.

I am entering this gift into the following challenges:

Stempetraume Challenge - Lace
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Some depth
Die-cut Dreams - Make a date
Top Tip Tuesday - A gift
Anything goes - Anything but a card
Craft Room - Die-cuts and punches

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Monochromatic and sparkle
Fairytale Challenge - Gift or gift packaging
