One Stitch at a Time Challenge 140

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is to use a digi. That's it!

We're sponsored by

This week, I decided to add to my stash of Christmas cards using an image from Floppy Latte called Christmas Candles 2.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added some sparkle with gold Glamour Dust. I cut the image and mat with a Spellbinders die, and made the poinsettia using a Marianne Creatables die. The paper has been in my Christmas paper stash for at least four years, and the ribbon is of a similar vintage - the last length of a much longer piece!

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

LEJ where the theme is 'Season's Greetings',
Tuesday Alchemy where anything goes,
The Pink Elephant Monday Challenge where they want us to use punches/dies
Divas by Design where anything goes,
Just Keep on Crafting where anything (Christmas) goes,
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge where anything goes,
Crafty Catz where they want some sparkle,
Papercrafting Journey where anything goes,
Little Claire's where the theme is Christmas.

Ooh that is a lovely die, didn't used to like poinsettias but must admit they are growing on me now. Great traditional image and looks fab with your papers.

I'm sorry I haven't been able to pop along to your blog for the last few weeks, life has been too blooming hectic lately and has got in the way of crafting and computer time.

Love Mandy xxx
