Contemporary Christmas

Hiya everyone.  Brrrr its getting a bit chilly now the winter nights are here.  I'm tucked up warm at home whilst taking some annual leave from work - lovin the lie ins too during half term lol.

Today we have a new challenge over at Sparkles Christmas.  If you've not started your stash for this years festivities you'd better get a shufty on as its almost upon us!!!

This month at SC we want a
  * Contemporary Colour Combo *
We want to see contemporary colours this month & as always don't forget your project must be for Christmas & can be cards, tags, bookmarks, scrap layouts or anything you like as we are a multi crafts blog.

Our fab sponsors for this month are of course our regular monthly sponsor

With a prize of a $10 voucher for 1 lucky winner.

I had so much fun with this challenge I think I ended up doing about four cards then wasn't sure which one to submit lol.
In the end I opted for this strong pink and black colour combi with the rather cute "Christmas Bunny" digi image from Wee Stamps.

The papers are from an old pad, DCWV I think, not certain.  I coloured with my copics and used bright pink flowers from my stash and two flower punches, together with my trusty card candy.

It would be lovely to see you joining in the fun with us this month.  My teamies have made some cracking makes and you can check them out on the challenge blog HERE

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges....

ABC Christmas - V for Vibrant Colours
Fab 'n' Funky - Die Cuts or Punches
My Mum's Craft Shop - Bold and Bright
City Crafter - 3 different patterned papers and 1 solid cardstock 
Paper MakeUp Stamps - Layers
Hooked on Craft - Christmas NO Red or Green
Love to Create - Lots of Layers

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm thinking of all of you who are going through such a difficult time due to hurricane Sandy. I hope you are all safe and hope too that your property is not damaged. Keeping you all in my thoughts and keeping my fingers crossed for you. 

Be safe
