High Hopes Christmas Card....



Well I forgot to add this one to my blog a couple of weeks back when I entered the High Hopes guest designer call. I have no idea who has been chosen but I'm sure whoever it is will do a wonderful job alongside all the incredible talent on there. I really enjoyed using non-Chrismassy colours on this one, they seem to work really well. I think the fact that there are so many Christmas cards floating around at the moment due to the Sugar Bowl challenge jogged my memory to upload this card.



Materials:
Image - High Hopes
Sentiment - Computer generated
Papers - offcuts
Die - Sizzix Swirl
Punch - Leone Em Ash Branch
Colouring - ProMarkers
Flowers - Prima
Embellishments - Ribbon and Jingle Bells from my stash
Accents - Stickles

Well I'm blogging at work and I really shouldn't be, so I'm sneaking off to do a bit of real work before I finish..... toodles for now!!

Hi Tara, I love your card and particularly the non Christmassy colours you used and your colouring is gorgeous! I love all the stitching around the panels it really finishes everything off so beautifully. Your comment on my Tara card made me ROFL, you're so funny! Sorry I haven't been around much lately to comment on your blog but I'm pleased as punch that you're staying on the BG DT, that's brilliant news. Chris xx

This is so different for a Christmas card, I love the colours and layout. You are very organised, starting on your Xmas cards, I don't think I could bring myself to get mine out so soon, it only feels like five minutes since I was glad to finish them all.
