Good Morning Ladies, well I asked for some rain but I carnt remember asking for so much, my poor hubby walked into town yesterday morning to pick up my magazines, and he was just about eight houses away from home when the heavens opened and he got soaked through, bless him I was grateful I hadnt had to go out in it. Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges Mo's Digital "Masculine theme" and Cute Card Thursdays "Get a Head Start" which means a early Christmas Card. I decided to use this charming image of a little lad our with his dad collection ferns for decorating his home for the holiday season, Ive used both my promakers and my copics on this to colour them both then cut it out with my Nestabilitie Die Label No.4, the mount has been created in red card by drawing around the die then cutting out by hand. The sentiment is one I had in my stash, I coloured the leaf with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted in onto red card.
The base card is actually a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card, and three papers from the Nitwit Download Collection "Comfort and Joy", this first paper is a all over red pattern with white swirls, the second and third mounts are three pieces of card across the middle, and on these Ive put a white and green swirl with holly leaves, this has been put on the two outer pieces and the middle one is a all over sentiment pattern on a red background. Over these I have wrapped a red ribbon with holly leaves on and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image on the card towards the top and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive stuck three poinsetta's with punched out fern leaves under them down the left hand side and then drizzled some stickles around the petals.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:-
