The East Wind Challenge - Christmas

HEY it's time for a new challenge over at The East Wind.  This time around the challenge is just perfect for this time of year it's Christmas!

But you know me... I had to do something that wasn't quite Christmasy because there are soooo many fabulous other images in the store.  So for my card I used the great Lucy loo blow the skull.  I thought even if it made for a darker style Christmas card it would still be quite elegant and I think I have managed quite well!!!

For this card I used papers from my scrap pile stash so I was quite happy with that!!! I used a ribbon from Recollection and some American twine as well as a little wood button.  The image was cut using my inverted squares from Quickuts.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  The great sentiment is from Create with TLC
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Left of center challenges - Anything goes darker challenge
  2. Sister act card challenge - Anything goes
  3. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
  4. Scribble and scrap crafts - Anything goes
That's it for this post!  It's quite a busy day!!!  Lots more to come so please do come back :)
