In a Sweet Pea Dream - Challenge 3

Over at the In a Sweet pea Dream Challenge Blog the challenge is Christmas.  I haven't got any of the lovely Sweet Pea Christmas stamps so have adapted one I already had using typical Christmas colours of red and green.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers/Copics and the sky has been filled in with chalks.  I then tore the edge of the image with my X-cut tearing ruler and then distressed the edges with a glitter chalk (these ones are more like a paste and a little more difficult to use but I thought perfect for the edges).  I have then layered the image onto some scraps of paper and put some leaf brads in the corners which I have had since I first started cardmaking and never used.  The backing papers are two scraps leftover from a Crafty Ann's Design Team card and the bottom piece is a scrap leftover from a piece of Basic Grey paper.  The card is then finished off with some poinsettias from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop which I have painstakingly cut out, a ticket sentiment and a ribbon bow.  Certainly a non-traditional Christmas card.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Little Red Wagon - Something old/something new - old is the brads and new is the ribbon bow
ABC Challenge - F is for flowers
Just Inspirational - Stamped project
Sarah Hurley - Colouring
Paper Cutz - Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
Winter Wonderland - Vintage
Allsorts - BINGO - brads, flowers, ribbon (bow)
Gingerloft - Winter
Pear Tree Designs - Free for all
Sweet Pea Stamper - Brads/bow or both.

Kym, I love how you have adapted a non traditional stamp to create you Christmas card. She is magnificent! By the way the poinsettia are lovely and well worth the time.

Thank you for joining us this challenge at "In A Sweet Pea Dream" and I hope to see more of your work in the future.
