Snuggled up in love

The weather has changed today, after several lovely sunny days it is pouring with rain. Nowhere near as much rain as some of you in the UK are having though. Awful floods so I hope you are all safe and dry.

My card today is for an order and I was asked for an A5 card. The beauty of digis is of course that you can resize them so I could make this cute Meljens image nice and big for the card. Image coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I used DI Victorian Velevt around the image, papers are Marianne Merry Little Christmas, sentiment Craftwork Cards. I added some lovely burgundy lace, Prima poinsettias and some gold holly leaves I found in my Christmas stash.
Challenges:

Colour Create Burgundy, gold, green and cream
DYSU Trees
Secret Crafter Wrap up warm
Creative Card Crew Fallin' in love

I know most of you are busy making Christmas cards so don't forget to enter our Christmas cheer challenge over at Squiggle Stamps where you could win a £10 voucher. There are some gorgeous new Christmas images or maybe you will spend it on some of the lovely older digis or rubber. You can enter using any image and remember, you have to be in it to win it.

I've had a lucky week, getting Top 3 at Send a Smile 4 Kids, Ladybug Crafts Ink and Crafty Sentiments.
