Annabelle skating

Yes, it's me again! I'm just popping in with a Christmas card I put together over the last few days. It's a bit OTT, I think I should have made the mittens from plain paper, but I'll know next time.

The sweet image is Annabelle Skating by Wild Rose Studios and it was free with the current edition of 'Quick Cards Made Easy' magazine. The papers are also from the same freebie set, they are yummy!

I used Promarkers (tell me if you want to know the colours, I left the list upstairs!) and Diamond Stickles on Annabelle's fur trim and muff. The image is cut with a Romantic Rectangles die.

The snowflakes are made from glitter paper with a Whimsy Snowflake Border Die but I snipped the snowflakes to use them individually.

The sentiment uses a Marianne die and silver mirri card, and the mittens are Memory Box. The 'Bow' is actually cut out of paper and decoupaged, using a very old Lili of the Valley ribbon stamp.

I'm entering the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Hazel wants to see cutting, I think I've covered that!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches provided the lovely sketch

Papertake Weekly have a theme of 'Make It Sparkle'

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Oh Mags, this is LOVELY! I adore the design and of course Annabelle is brilliant. I got the same set of papers and stamp with QCME and just posted it to a friend in Canada this afternoon as she loves Annabelle :) Betcha I might regret it :( Sigh.

Hugs, Di xx

So lovely, and I liked your spotted mittens. Looked furry & warm to me. Loved that wonderful S/B rectangle holding your lovely image, so beautifully colored. What a sweet little girl. Great card, very romantic in its vintage look. TFS & Hugs
