'Gold, Silver or Bronze'
Our sponsor this week is:
The prize is a $10 voucher to spend in the Digi Doodles store!
With all the success that Team GB have been having, I had to go for gold...and took my inspiration from all of the gold post boxes that have been springing up across the country in honour of the British Olympic Champions, giving this adorable Lili of the Valley puppy (called 'Puppy Post') a golden post box to post his Christmas cards. Not sure if they'll still be gold at Christmas...but you can find out where they are on this website...I've already spotted a couple near where I live...surrounded by people having their photos taken standing next to them! I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, and 'Soft Gold' Cosmic Shimmer pigment for the post box, then added Flowersoft for snow. I kept the rest of the card really simple, using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and Sizzix 'Snowglobe' folders to emboss some red card, matting everything on gold mirror card. I cut the snowflakes using Marianne Designs and Cuttlebug dies.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
- Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
- Do You Stack Up - Four Legged Friends
- Great Impressions - Animals
- My Mum's Craft Shop - Christmas in August
