Two more Christmas girls


After a good clear up in the garden I spent the afternoon crafting and managed to get these 2 cards photographed before it got dark. Isn't she a sweetie from Pink Gem and she looks so good in pink. I used the lovely sketch at A Gem of a Challenge. The diagonally striped paper was just perfect for this sketch. I used lots of pink glitter on some foam snowflakes and glitter flocking on her fur so this card really sparkles. I am also entering this card into the challenge of bling it on at Totally Papercrafts, presents at Bah Humbug and Christmas traditions at Sir Stampalot.

The manga girl from Sugar Nellie is one of the 3 stamps I chose when I was lucky enough to win at PFP recently. I used the great sketch at The Sugar Bowl and the rectangular scalloped nesties which don't get enough use. Snowflakes were made with the MS punch with added pearls. I like using tall cards for a change but the image doesn't show up as well as a square card on the computer so please click on the image for a larger view.
