Santa Stop Here!!!

I have made this for the My Time To Craft Challenge - 14th August - Christmas in August - as part of the Design Team.

I have entered this into the following challenges:

I have use yet another Teddy Bo image for this card, can't help myself , they are fab. I have coloured with copics and used a snow effect and glitter to finish it off. The papers I have used I have had for so long, I can't even remember where I got them. I used a wide christmas ribbon and a poinsettia to decorate, also gold swirls cut with a Marianne die. I added a few small red gems onto some of the corners to add a little bling.

Happy Crafting!!!

  7. I rarely use wide ribbon but think it looks ok on this card, well I hope so lol. Thanks

  8. Hi Helen your card is beautiful I do love this image and your colours couldn't have been better. I love your wide ribbon on your card I had to have a double look I thought it was paper to start with. I was never a fan of wide ribbon on cards and over the years it's grown on me and I've even used it myself on one or two occasions, it's funny how your tastes change. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
