A Christmas Card for Mum

Hello again!  I'm back with second card today - must be on a roll!!  This card is for my mum and stepdad and is my first 8x8 card!  I love the size of it but think I'll still save them for special occassions.  I've used one of the wonderful images from Mo's Digital Pencil!   I'm sure mum'll love it as she prefers all the cute images - just need to finish it off with a decent insert and verse.  This will be entered into the following challenges:


One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Love


I have flipped the sketch onto its side and added an additional flower.  I love this image myself as they appear to be carol singing.  I LOVE listening to decent carol singers at this time of year and all the old Christmas favourites sung by Nat King Cole and Dean Martin!  




The red papers are from K&Co and I think the green ones HOTP.  I've gone round all papers and card with my gold Uni paint pen to give a slightly gilted look.   The ribbon is from my stash.  Flowers are from prima and the leaf punch is by  Leone Em.  The flower punch is by woodware.

Thanks for stopping by, take care and happy crafting!
