It's Christmas!!!...cardmaking time!

I am excited today as I have made a christmas card for two challenges using a digital  pyramage sheet from The crafty purple frog ! My very good friend Amy owns this fabulous blog shop which has the most amazing Digital decoupage sheets.
Amy has asked me to help her set up a challenge blog and lead the DT for her shop. I will keep you updated on more news of this in a later post.
I was delighted to help her as her product is so fantastic to work with and so versitile. All images are designed from the beautiful artwork of Ching Chou Kuik.
This card is for two challenges. At Winter Wonderland the challenge is to make a one layer card. At the ABC Christmas challenge they want us to use Santa and if you want to make him not red.
When I saw the pyramage sheet Cherish Christmas I just had to use her on acetate. I used just one image as Winter Wonderland want to see us use one layer on our card. I covered the card with MME paper that has Santa on. I then cut an aperture and put my printed image behind it. I added some glitter to it. I then printed the image onto normal paper and cut out the mermaid. I stuck her ontop of the acetate.I made a frame with my nesties and added a greeting and some gems.


Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
