Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #1 and Christmas Card Club

Welcome to the first challenge at Christmas Challenges (with sketches). We run fortnightly and each challenge you will be given a sketch to follow. We have some great sponsors lined up so I do hope you'll come and join the fun and get those Christmas cards out of the way in good time this year.

Our sketch this week is by Janneke and our sponsors are All that Scraps and the prize is a $30 gift certificate.

and here is my card:

Using a digi stamp and backing papers from Cuddly Buddly, the image has been coloured with promarkers. Backing papers and image are mounted onto gold textured mirri card and the same card has been used to diecut the corners. Card is finished with a ribbon, a sentiment and a button.

I do hope you will join us in our first challenge and do pop over to CCWS to see what delights the rest of the Design Team have to show you.

This is also my card for this fortnights Christmas Card Club challenge. There is a list of participants in my sidebar and the challenge is for fun (but helps the Christmas card box fill up early), should you wish to join us get in touch with any one of us and we'll point you in the right direction.
