Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Lime, Blue & Pink

It's Tracie's turn to set the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week...and she has chosen a colour combo of:

'Lime, Blue & Pink



I've used it to make...surprise, surprise...a Christmas card! The image is 'Presents for Two' by Lili of the Valley, coloured with watercolour pencils. The papers are all from a Heidi Grace pad (sorry it doesn't have a name on it), and I distressed all of the edges before adding some faux stitching. You may notice that I've used a couple of new bits'n'pieces on this card...had a little spend of a Secret Crafter gift voucher I got for my birthday...yes I know that was months ago...but it's taken me ages to decide what to get! lol Anyway, as always, Wendy got my goodies to me quickly, and I just had to use them right away! I used one of my new 'Lacey Circles' Nesties behind the image, and cut lots of snowflakes with my new Marianne Designs Creatables Snowflakes. The other snowflakes were cut using my trusty Cuttlebug die. The sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly, the spotty ribbon (just seen) is from Poppicrafts, and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' border punch on the green paper.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
