Hark!Christmas is coming…

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Add A Sentiment.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super surprise prize.Don’t forget to take at some fabulous DT inspiration while you’re there.

So I thought I’d grab the chance to get another Christmas card made.I’m determined,this year,not to be finishing them and sending them on the last posting  date!!So this little beauty,Hark the Angel Sing by Crafty Sentiments ,has helped me a little way to achieving my goal 🙂 She’s been coloured with Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers then fussy cut so that she’s positioned in front of the die cut wreath,with added Liquid Pearls for effect.I thought this would tie in nicely with the holly coronet on her head.This was also the thinking behind the punched border.The papers are some remnant Hot Off the Press Papers  and the sentiment has been stamped directly onto the card base.Due to the many rises and changes in postal costs I try to come up with designs to minimise these charges but hopefully still present friends and family something worth displaying on their mantelshelf.

Supplies :
