Hello everyone, hope you are all enjoying your Monday so far. I have a few posts today, so will start off with a card for Colour Create Challenge No. 26 - Ruby, Cream and Gold, with an added optional extra of using Gems. I have used a stamp from The Greeting Farm called Rain, Snow and Shine. And yes, this is my first Christmas card made for 2009. The image has been coloured with Twinkling H2O's, and the fur has been made using Liquid Applique, and a Heating Tool. The image has been trimmed down, and layered on cream, red and gold card. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Wassail, and to finish the card off - a stamped sentiment, some cream organza ribbon, and some Gems from my craft stash.
