Sewn Together DT Challenge #3

Hi Everyone

I'm really feeling terrible that I'm kind of neglecting my blog but I feel so rough at the moment. I promise as soon as I start to feel a bit better I'll get back to posting properly, at least now the girls are back at school it's a bit quieter during the day so hopefully some rest will see me right.

Well it's that time of the week again, time for the next Sewn Together Challenge , this week is a Themed Challenge to make a Christmas card using any image and any colour. So this is what I decided on

For my card I wanted to use colours that are not usually associated with Christmas and I also really wanted to use the super cute image of Miki with Candy Cane, so I decided that I would colour him in pinks and greys (with a little bit of other colour for contrast). I used my Copic markers to colour in Miki and then decided to use some papers from the Diecuts with a View Rose Tinted Christmas - Christmas Multi Stack for the card as they were the exact colours I was using and also had a Candy Cane just like Miki did. To accent the card I added some grosgrain ribbon from the Dovecraft Smirk range and some sticky-back rhinestones (I didn't have any black ones so I coloured a silver one with my black copic marker), finally to finish the card I added a stamped greeting from a clear stamp set by Hot off the Press and some glitter on the candy cane because you have to have sparkle with Christmas.

Here is a closer look at Miki all ready to celebrate the holiday season.

So that's what I came up with, I'd love to know what you think. Please visit my wonderful DT team-mates to see all the fab ideas that they have all come up with, I know they will be worth the visit, and why not give the challenge a go for yourself, you can find all the details on the Sew Many Cards Blog and Angela will announce on their what you could be lucky enough to win if your card/project is chosen. While you are there don't forget to check out the Freebie Friday section and if you would like some of these cute little guys 'n' gals to come to your house then you can find them all HERE patiently waiting for you.

Thanks again to everyone who takes the time to visit my blog and for all you kind comments, I'll be back again as soon as I can.
