Another Christmas card from me today...using another of the stamps from the 'Christmas Outdoors' set by Penny Black. I stamped it directly on to my card base, then coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the icy ground using a Wink of Stella pen. The snippet of paper is from the 'Your's Truly' pad by Pebbles Inc, the sentiment stamp is from a Lili of the Valley set, and the little adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.

Challenges for this card:

Oh this is right up my street Helen. I love that you stamped direct onto the base card and watercoloured the image. The snippet of designer paper and the little sentiment flag are perfectly placed.

Look out . . . there's a game of tag going on in the Playground . . . you'll have to run fast not to be made "IT".

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Helen, I love the peppermint like paper you added to the bottom and then picked up those colors in the image! Makes a really pretty card. I also like the fish-tail banner for your sentiment and the nice detail of the pink pearls. Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our ATG challenge!
