Charisma meet Little Paper Shop

Here's my DT card for Charisma this week, which is a recipe set by Sally:

3 papers
3 flowers
1 ribbon
1 charm

I spent an absolute age on my 'puter yesterday afternoon trying to find the right digi-papers to go with my image, and then we had a power cut! So I dug around in my stash, as you do, and found these lovely Christmas papers I bought last year and hardly used, and the rest of the card came together quite easily.

I'm also entering my card into Little Paper Shop's challenge, which this week was to make a Christmas card using non-traditional red & green.

My image is a Sharing Sherbert stamp which I was lucky enough to win and I've coloured her with pm's & a glitter pen. The cardstock is Stampin' Up! Lovely Lilac and Whisper White and the silver ribbon & charm are from my stash. I've made the flowers by cutting out with a punch and then stamping on them in Versamark using one of the swirly stamps from SU! Frames With a Flourish and finished off with some silver brads.

I'm still struggling with lighting for my pics, Kev has made a light box for me, but it's not quite right and now instead of my piccies being too dark they're overexposed and it's made this card look a bit washed out, it's more vibrant in real life. Will try & get an outside photo done instead as the sun's out today!

Hope you can join us over at Charisma again this week.
