Now this is a new concept for me I usually do lots on a card but have been asked to do some simple Christmas cards and as I have a new Christmas die or two thought it would be a good way to show them off
So I adhered red card to a white base card cut the ornament (the new one) and greeting with the cuttle bug adhered to white card then adhered to the red card and that was it done, quick and easy but...
I am sitting here thinking it's so plain guess I will show it to my friend before making her some more
I was inspired by the bakers twine and the CAS theme


This Card has been done for The Tuesday Morning Sketches rather like doing these challenges as I feel the sketch kick starts you and I have needed a bit of that lately

 I adhered ribbon around black card and adhered to white base card, printed off the lady cut it into a oval with the cuttle bug then cut the black shiny back with a Nellie Snellon die, adhered to card cut a white flourish and four layers of a flower distress inked the edges with black soot put the flower together and put a black flat bead in the centre

in the pink

Cut three strips of backing paper and adhered to pink card,I decided to use the pink card as it just flowed  and the white did not look right to me,stamped sentiment onto card,added ribbon and bow  cut out four flamingo's adhered together,while flamingo's were still in the die I coloured in the wings, the other alternative is to emboss it

 Am putting this into the saturday sketch challenge
