Christmas in may at Phindy`s Place

Hi peeps!

Here we go with a new challenge over at Phindy`s Place. We are doing Christmas-cards in may. It might be a good idea to start creating you`re christmas-cards early course when the time comes there allways is a shortage of christma-cards. I know most of you have stashed away your christmas stuff but now you have an excuse to get it out again, lol. The winner is picked randomly and wins a gift certificate of $5 to use in Phindy`s store. We also have a pick of the week which is chosen by the DT. The pick of the week also wins a gift certificate of $5 to use in Phindy`s store. The pick of the week is also eligible to get to be pick of the month which wins a guest DT spot and a free Phindy`s image to use in the challenge.

For my card this time i have used some papers from BoBunny`s christmas collection from last year. And i made it a gate-fold card. Since i don`t own a die-cutting system i had to cut the oval by hand. It is NOT easy to get an even circle but i think it looks fairly ok. I inked the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink. and stamped the edges with a swirlstamp from Tim Holtz. The image is coloured with ProMarkers.

The colours i have used is:

Hair: Primrose, buttercup and pastel yellow
Skin: Vanilla, blush and oatmeal
Dress: Poppy, berry red and crimson

The Wings, halo and edges of the dress is covered with stickles stardust. Which looks a bit furry when applied.

CCEE stampers - Flowers
Shelly`s Images - Anything goes
Stampinsanity - Fancy folds
ABC Challenge - U for unusual fold
Crafty Creations - Challenge #119 Flowers, patterned paper and a ribbon
