Cupcake Craft Challenge #68


Hello girls. thanks for calling in to have a look at my blog. I appreciate your visit. It's the first weekend in December already - it's frightening when I think of everything I have to do yet for Christmas. Still I don't suppose I'm alone in that.
This card was made to enter the Cupcake Craft challenge where the theme was "Red & Green". I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Mistletoe" coloured in using my Copic Ciaos. The image and sentiment are mounted on a red spotted paper by Bo Bunny and the two main papers are both sides of "The Merry Days of Christmas" by My Mind's Eye. I have mounted a punched Holly border from a Fiskars punch onto glitter card and put a ribbon across.
I hope you like the overall effect and would welcome any comments you might have time to leave for me. I really value them and enjoy reading them. Please don't leave without leaving a record of your visit - I will return the compliment.
Hugs,
Fiona x
