Sooooo, hello. Today I would like to share with you the DT card I have made for the new Anything Goes over at Challenges for Everybody, where we are sponsored by (new to me) Sherri Baldy Designs. I think her images are so sweet that I will be using some more in the future.
I coloured my image using (my ever growing collection of) Promarkers and added stickles glitter to the fur. I also added liquid pearls to any bits of snow and dotted liquid pearls around to represent falling snow.
I decided to go for non-traditional colours as I really wanted to use the Merry Magic papers. So, I used pink and greens and then used a soft green card blank and pink card to border other pieces.
I based this card on the sketch from Sketch Saturday, turned on it's side.
The snowflake ribbon is from my stash and I am always looking for an excuse to use this ribbon.. I'm sure I'll change my mind when it starts to run out and try not to use it ever.
I didn't think that I had enough room for a sentiment on this card, so I used my trusty Lili Of The Valley tag sentiments, stamped using blank Versafine ink. I love these sentiment tags as they always come through when I am struggling to find room. I just struggle to decide which ones I actually want to use on each card. I really want to get the non-Christmas tags from LOTV, but they always seem to be out of stock when I have a few spare pennies to get them *sad face*. I added a little clear gem to look like it is holding them on. I was going to add a bauble sticker from my stash, but it was too big.
I finished the card by adding a fair few embellishments. The glittery presents in the bottom left hand corner are from a Merry Magic embellishment pack (so, in theory) coordinate with the papers. The little pink gems in all available corners are from a Merry Magic gems pack. I also added some little white snowflakes, which were in my stash.
I want to enter this card into the following challenges:
I think this card might end up with my youngest niece, as I've coloured it to look like her (although I don't think she is that angelic when she is talking!), and she is very much girly girl with a twist (i.e. she loves pretty dresses, as long as they match her wellies!), which I think this card is. Of course, by Christmas, I will probably have made a million more for her.
