Autumn and Winter from Pollycraft

This week's challenge at Winter Wonderland has been set by my lovely teamie Kate and she wants a monochromatic card. The team thought it would be fun to each choose a different colour and as I have hardly made any purple Christmas cards yet I went with purple. I used another of my new Pollycraft images. She is coloured with PMs with lots of glitter on her fur. I didn't have any rich purple Christmas papers so I used Papermania Heather capsule collection for my background paper and a couple of scraps of Christmas paper punched with an MS border punch. The strip is a glitter strip from Papermania. I made the snowflake by combining die cuts from glitter card made with Sizzix and Cuttlebug dies and adding a pearl. This week we are sponsored by Teri at

who is giving away 3 digis to the lucky winner. Please hop over and see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT and get cracking on those Christmas cards, only 3 months to go.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday
Die Cut Dreams Digital - sweet little girl
Moving along with the times Christmas

It's another Autumnal card using another Pollycraft image who looks ready for a good Autumn walk in those shoes. Background paper is Papermania Hampstead. I used the same MS border punch on the scrap of Craftwork Cards lovely shiny paper. Ticket sentiment is from Alisssa's papertown which I chalked and coloured with a PM to match the design. I added a few pearls and a bow to keep the embellies to a minimum on this one for easy posting. It also made a change to make a female card without flowers.
