Creative Inspirations #139

Hi girls. Sorry I have been a bit tardy again. Good days and bad days I'm afraid. I'm so glad you have called in again. I hope you are well and having blogging and crafting fun. I trust that you might like what is on offer today. We are getting awfully close to December now so it's Christmas cards all the way for a while. I hope your preparations are well in hand.
I am entering this card into the Creative Inspirations Challenge where the theme is "Winter Colours". They are looking for creations in "Blue. Grey and White".
I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Moonlight Wishes" and coloured her with Copics, silver ink and gel pens. The design paper is one of my digi papers and I used navy sparkly card and mirra card to mount.. The ribbon is silver grey and I used a Fiskars holly punch for the border. I am a bit disappointed with the photo because the poinsettias because they don't actually look as though they were cut from silver mirra card (but they were, honestly) and the copious amounts of glitter don't show very well. I used pearls for the centres of the poinsettias.
I hope you like (or dislike) this enough to leave a comment. I value your opinions. Have a great day and above all stay safe and healthy.


  1. Oooh wooow, Fiona this is a wonderful card, gorgeous image and colors :)I love it!!!
    To bad you are not feeling tha well, I wish better days for you!
    I'm struggeling with my health now, have bronchitis, asthma and shoulder inflammation.
    So I'm not that active in cardmaking these days I'm afraid, have to save the little energi I have for baking for Christmas.
    Wish you a nice day, dear :)
    Hugs Lill

  13. Hi Fiona, your card is beautiful. I love the way you have caught the light on the image she looks as if she's sitting in moonlight, fab colouring. Love the Poinsettias and I have also spent ages trying to photograph cards with mirri card on them, mine usually look black...lol. Take care.
