Christmas Colour Create Card

This is a first for me, I haven't taken part in a Colour Create Challenge yet but I was really inspired by the above picture and we are getting seriously close to the 'C' word. As you can see this weeks challenge was to create a card or project using the above picture as inspiration and colours Red, White and Green.

So here is my version of the candy cane................I have used a Pollycraft design from the Cherry Kisses collection, which you can find here. I have glammed her up with my usual bling and sparkle and coloured her in using my favourite Promarkers. I really enjoyed experimenting with the ribbon on this one, I love the effect.

Here is the inside of my card. I have tried to make the left hand side look like a wrapped gift and leaving a small space on the right for a personal message. Here is a close up shot of the cute little elf............

Card Stock; Do Crafts Goody Bag & Papermania

My mum has caught the papercrafting bug and I have finally convinced her to start her own blog, so that she can archive her makes. She will be posting her first post today, so please pop along and leave her a smilie comment, Sugar Candy Mandy.
