Simon Says:- Martina's Sketch


Hi girls, thank you for coming over to visit my blog. You have no idea how much pleasure it gives me to know that you have been over to see my creations. I have been feeling a bit concerned recently when I saw how many of you are making Christmas cards because the thought had nver even entered my head yet. So in order to ease the conscience a bit I decided it was time I made at least one.
I decided to use the fabulous sketch Martine had provided over at Simon Says this week so that I would be able to enter a challenge with it. I used Magnolia's "Tilda with Mistletoe" and coloured her using my Copic Ciaos.I used Silver Mirra Card as a backing for mounts. The papers are from Basic Grey. the first one is "Eskimo Kisses - Starry Night". The name of the second with the snowflakes in pink and blue is unfortunately unknown to me. The snowflakes and corners are cut using Martha Stewart punches. The snowflakes are cut out of silver and sparkly card.
I hope you like this card and if you can find the extra time to leave a comment for me I would be thrilled to hear what you think of it. Your comments are a constant source of encouragement.
I hope you have a great day and achieve everything you set out to do. Stay safe and healthy.
Hugs,
