Challenge 129 at Crafty Cardmakers & More - Christmas

It's that time of year again!

Welcome to our last challenge of 2014 at Crafty Cardmakers & more.... 

We have picked a nice easy one this time around, Christmas. I am sure you all still have those last minute cards to get done so we look forward to being amazed at your fabulous creations.

We have lots of lovely goodies provided by sponsors for this our last challenge of the year, which will run for one month, instead of the normal two weeks, and that will take us into 2015 and our first challenge which will be on January 12th.

 I thought I would do a simple card, and spend more time on my colouringThe base card is a 7 x 5 plain white card - this and the 6 x 6 is totally my favourite sizes.  Onto the base I layered some red card, and then on top of that a sheet of Christmas card from Hobbycraft.  It's double sided - which actually always irritates me slightly, as I don't like the waste of not being able to use the side stuck down...

Onto this base I stuck my sentiment and topper, both of which had been mounted onto the same red card as the base.

For my topper, I used a lovely stamp from the House of Zandra, of a wonderful Christmas dress. I stamped it onto some watercolour paper (a sample sent to me by my lovely Teamie  Josephine) which was perfect,  even though I coloured the image in using a combination of Promarkers and Graphit markers.  I used my clear wink of stella pen to give the fur around the top of the dress some bling.  The final touch was some gemstones in the corners.
