This week on the Truly Scrumptious blog we have a fab sketch by the very talented Mina and the added challenge is to use some bling on your card.
I’ve noticed that a lot of people have started to make their Christmas cards recently which is such a good idea as I’m always rushed at that time of year. I have a real lack of Christmas stamps (I feel a shopping spree coming on) but I do have this fabulous image from Pink Gem Designs. I’ve coloured her in distress inks and added stickles to the fur trim on her dress, ear muffs and boots. I used a Hero Arts snowflake stamp around the edge of the image and my other snowflakes are punched and embellished with crystal gems. And for a bit more bling I added 3 star shaped brads to the ribbon. I ran out of room for a sentiment but I’ll add one to the inside later on.
I hope you will be able to visit the Truly Scrumptious blog to see the DT’s fabulous creations. There is also a fantastic set of Alota stamps to be won if you take part our challenge.
