Morning all, time for another monthly challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge and this time the lovely Helen P asked us to make something For A Child.  We’re sponsored again by the very generous Marianne Designs:

For my card I went with bright papers, a cut down card base and a fun image from Penny Black to make an amusing card.



My image is from a clear Penny Black set called Holly Jolly and I coloured it with Prisma pencils, edged it with the appropriately named Versamagic Gingerbread ink  and added Yellow and Xmas Red Stickles to the baubles.  It was mounted on to some red bazzil card that had been punched with an EKSuccess edge punch.  The sentiment is from a clear Recollections set and it’s stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and mounted on more of the bazzil.  The papers are from an old freebie book from Crafts Beautiful.  I added a few green gems and a brad from BoBunny.

I hope you can join us over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month, Christmas is right around the corner you know!  And please pop over to the main blog and leave some love for my teamies, they make such beautiful projects every month.
