Christmas list

It's another Wee stamp today! this one is actually called 'a letter for me' and isn't supposed to be a Christmas design, but for some reason that's what I kept seeing. I think the little lad is going over his Christmas wish list and kitty is standing by with the envelope to send it off to Santa! I've coloured with my Copic pens and made up the card using the sketch from the Fussy 'n' Fancy Friday challenge blog, but I moved the text onto the image as it fitted better, then put the flower embellishment where the text should be. The patterned paper is a digi design from Cuddly Buddly and I've used red card for matting and to punch out the poinsettia flowers with a Nellie's Choice punch and emboss set. The white layer behind the image is embossed with Swiss Dots folder, the fronds and the lace edge are both Martha Stewart punches and the white pearls are made with my Waco pearl maker pen.

I did make a note of the colours, but I've misplaced the bit of paper .. .. I think it's time to tidy the desk again! Moving Along With The Times and Incy Wincy are both looking for men/boys cards or projects so I'll enter my little boy's Christmas card with them, and Paper Sundaes are Keeping it Simple so perfect for them too.

  10. Hi Annie,
    I just love your cards, all of them! And this one is magic! Your choice of colors and coloring skills are amazing. This soft shadow effect behind the boy is something I have always tried to do, but never with success.
