This little lass is Wee Holly, she is a digi here, or as a stamp from Whimsy Stamps here, although currently showing as OOS. I've coloured her with my Copic pens to tie in with the scraps of Nitwit Always and Forever digi papers I had sat on my desk. The Stampin' For The Weekend challenge is for some distressing on your creation, and wow was my weekend distressed! What with slow internet and family problems I've not been around much so will have to play catch up again!
Here's my card, it's a C6 size kraft base, then I've cut a red layer from Coredinations card and distressed the edges with an emery board. I've inked the edges of the papers and the base card with Jumbo Java Versamagic chalk ink, but forgot to ink the edge of my image. To embellish I've added a length of green lace from Marianne and diecut the poinsettias and tags, also taking the emery board to distress them too, then adding the tiny pearls to finish things off.
I even went so far as to decorate the inside too - simply done with a strip of patterned paper, a square of white with an embossed edge and stamped text greeting, and finally a single layer poinsettia. Marianne dies I've used: the mini poinsettia set LR0142 and the tags cut from the Winter Wishes set LR0187.
The Christmas Card challenge is to add tags or make a tag, as you see I've added a double tag to my card.
As it's taken me several hours to get this post finished I'm going for a cuppa, or maybe something stronger, before I attempt to try and catch up with you all .. .. cheers!
