Christmas in July

It's Christmas over at Southern Girls Challenge Blog and we are celebrating with lots of Christmas themed crafts.  Please join in so that we can come and visit and leave a comment - we love seeing what everyone else is creating.

I've created my first Christmas card for the season using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I used an image from one of my favourite artists - Meljen's Designs. I coloured the image with my Copics and then added some silver Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

So there's no time like the present to start creating Christmas cards - there's only 5 months left til the big day and I'm going to make sure that this year I'll actually get them out on time!

Here's a close up of the image so you can see the dimesion of the Liquid pearls, the silver Stickles and you can see the image is raised on 3D foam dots.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Christmas in July
  2. Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
  3. Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog - Jolly Holiday
  4. City Crafter Challenge Blog - Christmas in July
