A Simple Christmas Creation

Evening everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, there was lots of fun stuff going on in blogland wasn't there to celebrate World Cardmaking Day!

My card today is a Christmas creation, but much more on the cleaner side than my usual, but everytime I started adding embellies and layers to it it looked wrong so this is how it turned out! Am quite pleased really. The gorgeous stamp, one of the new Sarah Kay's from the Noel collection is courtesy of the fabulous Elaine from Quixotic Paperie as she popped it in my dt package. Thanks Elaine! He's such a cutie isn't he! A pleasure to colour in too! The layout of the card is from the Card Patterns challenge blog (have totally fallen in love with their sketches), and am also entering this over at SimonSaysChallenge (green and red-the holly has green!), Creative Inspirations (Christmas in October) and Stamp with Sarah Kay (animals-think the little lamb counts). Here's a little close up:~


Stuff: Sarah Kay sheperd stamp available here, copic ciao and sketch to colour, distress ink in frayed burlap (used around image, sentiment and papers), Cosmo Cricket jolly by golly papers, jute ribbon available here, bell charms available here, su sentiment, bling from here, sewing machine.

Just a heads up, Funkykits are now selling the new Country Cousins Christmas stamps, get em quick girls before they sell out-they're soooooooo sweet! Also Quixotic Paperie are now selling the new Kraftie Kimmie stamps-you must check these out!
