1st Christmas Card 2010 + Challenges

Here is my first Christmas card for 2010 - Won't get caught out this year now that there are some new dedicated Christmas Challenge blogs starting this year. This card is for a few challenges so without further ado here they are.

1. ABC Christmas Challenge: This is ABC's first challenge and the spec is A = Angel but they have asked us to incorporate either a charm or beads, I've made a little hairband out of red,gold and green beads for my angel.
2. Sophisticat Challenge: The theme for this week is Fancy Borders, I've used my new EK swiss cheese punch on either side of my image.
3. Incy Wincy Designs Challenge: This week the theme is Bling it Up. I've used glamour dust on the angels wings, stars and snowflake.
4. Winter Wonderland Challenge: A colour scheme is this weeks challenge of Cinnamon, lime green and berry. I have two of the colours in my paper and for the Cinnamon I used my Cinnamon ProMarker to colour the string tied to the buttons. Hope that's okay girls.
5. The Crafty Pad Challenge: this is my second entry into the challenge which this week is to use buttons on your creation.
6. The Pink Elephant Challenge: This week there is a recipe to follow and because it's still so bitterly cold there is a winter theme to it, 2 Designer papers, 3 buttons and snowflakes.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you come back and see me soon.
