Welcome to another challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge, the last one for 2014! Yikes, that’s a sobering thought! Our lovely leader Shaz has chosen this months theme and it’s a colour one, A Blue Christmas in fact. We are once again sponsored by the very generous Marianne Design Company.
My card this month features a cute LOTV bunny out delivering his Christmas cards in the snow…
He was coloured with Prisma pencils and Stickles, and finished off with Perfect Pearls and Frantage. The whole image piece was mounted on to a blue card blank. The strip on the left was made by punching scrap blue card with a Martha Stewart punch and adding a strip of DCWV Christmas Paper. The poinsettia is a Poppy Stamps die and it was cut from paper that was covered with Tim Holtz Holographic embossing powder, a little blue gem continues the theme. The sentiment is more blue than the grey it appears to be here! It’s from Recollections and I cut it out by hand.
Here’s a close up of the colouring..
Hopefully you’ll have time to join in with us this month as the big day is really very close indeed now! Please pop over to the main Sparkles Christmas blog, my fellow teamies have some lovely and varied blue inspiration for you.
