ABC Christmas - M is for...


Good morning, I am so glad that you have stopped by for a visit. Today is the start of another great challenge over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.
Our hostess this week is Delphine and she has chosen the theme of

Monochromatic Cards

Our sponsor this week is Wags N Whiskers who have generously offered 4 digi stamps for one lucky participant.

Please take our logo to display on your blog :-)



For my card this week I have used this beautiful fairy from Wags N Whiskers. I have coloured her in shades of red and added a generous dose of stickles in 2 different shades for some sparkle and glitz.
The designer papers are a mix of Basic Grey, MME and K and Company. I have also used some white glitter paper which I stamped with the Hero Arts starry night background (don't try this if you are in a hurry, it takes forever and a day to dry).

The layout for my card was based on a great sketch from this week's Cupcake Crafts Challenge.


To embellish the card I have used a rose from an unknown source and some of my favorite cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, I feel an order coming on when our postal strike is over. My supply is starting to dwindle. To finish it off, I have added a sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

Be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and see the other wonderful creations from the rest of the DT. I hope that you will join us, I do look forward to seeing what you create.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
