Untraditional Christmas

Hiya! I know I've not been around much... I'm sorry. I've made a few cards but just been sooo busy that I haven't been able to post them on my blog.
I so enjoyed making a christmas card in non-traditional colours that I wanted to make another one - this time without even christmas themed papers! These are Henbury Lane papers with some lovely bright and bold cardstock I found at my local craft shop. The image is LOTV (sooo cute!) and is coloured with my promarkers. I added some glitter glue to the fur on his hat for a lovely sparkle. There's a bit of skinny tinsel I found at a car boot sale and some gems and ribbon from my stash. The faux stitching round the edge is done with the fine tip of a brush marker.
This card has managed to miss the deadline for no less than 3 (yes, 3!) challenges :-(
LOTV - Untraditional Christmas
Fridays Sketchers - Sketch 121
Crafty Catz - Stitching
However, I should be in time for:
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in September
The Creative Cottage - Bling it on
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas
The Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle
Sarah Hurley - All Sewn Up
so that's not tooo bad, eh? :-)
Back with another post in a mo...
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
