Day 2 of the Crafty Ribbons Advent Calendar


Well here we are at day 2 of the Advent Calendar. You'll find some  members of the DT playing along  every day. I hope you are playing along at Crafty Ribbons Pure Inspiration blog. Our sponsor today is Joanna Sheen who is offering 2 decoupage packs to the lucky winner.  All you have to do is add your name to the link and this blinkie to your sidebar.



Couldn't be easier. There's a different prize and sponsor every day so come back and play every day.

So onto my card, which features a gorgeous Sugar Nellie image coloured with Promarkers nd Flexmarkers. I've used some more of the old Papermania papers, appropriately the Percy and Penelope penguin ones. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons of course. I've also added some star buttons tied with raffia, a wooden snowflake coloured with DI Faded Jeans, which I have also used around the edges along with a TH distressing tool, and a MS punched snowflake. I've added lots of glitter. If you want a really puffy glitter look as I have done here, use PVA glue instead of a glue stick. I've finished the card off with a Viva pearl pen.
