A Christmas Birthday + various challenges






Hello again my dears,  I wanted to show you this wee card that I made for my dear friend Carol who's having a Birthday on 25th December.  I used the sketch from Whiff of Joy and the image is from the Whiff of Joy collection by Elizabeth Bell 2009 which I bought recently and it's utterly adorable. I've used Pro Markers to colour her.  I've distress the papers and machine sewn around the card and the hand cut squares. The full recipe is below this post.

I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges:

Passion For Promarkers Challenge:  Are having a MEGA Christmas challenge with tons n tons of great prizes. The theme is Anything Goes.

Paper Sundaes Challenge:  Would like to see you cut it out this week, image, embellishments etc, the choice is yours. I've cut out my three squares in different papers and sewn them onto the card.
