ABC Christmas Challenge - G is for Girly

Wow, I can't believe that we are already coming to the end of March.  It seems like Christmas just passed but already we are one third of the way through another year and before you know it we will be sending out Christmas cards once again. I know many of you have been following along with us right from the start of the year and will have a great stash built up by the time December rolls around. If you are just joining us, welcome and don't worry, you still have lots of time left.

Before I tell you about this weeks challenge, I want to extend a big thank you to all of you who participated in our F is for Freebie challenge. You really rocked the sketch and I had a great time visiting all of your blogs to see your lovely creations.

This week it is Jayne's turn to host and she has chosen the theme
G is for Girly.
Jane has also selected a great colour combo of Pink, Purple and Silver.


Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Emma's Store
The Prize will be a £10.00 Voucher off any order at
Emma's store.
 

For my card I have used this sweet angel stamp that I won from Motivet Rubber Stamps a while back now. I felt that this image was a perfect feminine fit for our girly challenge and it gave me the perfect reason to colour her up. All of the papers are from my stast and I believe that they are actually quite a few years old, I love it when I can use up some of my older products and make room for new things.

I have added some silver touches using some peel off border stickers and some white ribbon edged with silver sparkle. The sentiment is from LOTV and the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I want to thank you for stopping by today for a peek. Now it is over to you. Don't forget to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and see the gorgeous cards that my DT teamies have created to share with you.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
