3 in 1 Christmas Card


I really seem to be struggling to find the time for challenges at the moment, so it was good to do a card I can fit into 3 challenges. I'm entering this one into:

Bee Crafty - Distressing
Cupcake Craft - Sketch
Papertake Weekly - Spots and Stripes

The image is a really love digi-image from Bee Crafty, I actually downloaded this with the intention of doing the last challenge, but missed it, so I'm glad I got to use it this time, I've coloured it with PM's & SU! markers, I've not done a lot of distressing, but have chalked around the edge of the image and the mats with SU! chalks and distressed the spotty paper slightly.

The papers are free digi's from Summertime designs, the cardstock is SU! Elegant Eggplant - am really loving this at the moment, the brad is from my stash & the snowflakes I've cut out with the Cricut.

TFL & have a good Sunday, it's blowing a gale here & I struggled to get a reasonable photo as the sun is in & out all the time.
