Peas On Earth

This is my entry into the current Rosie Dee Challenge which is:

Red and Green and a bit of bling

I originally wasn't going to make a Christmas card but I'd seen the Peas on Earth image from Whimsie Doodles and just had to buy it!

I've coloured the image with felt tips, watercolour pencils and added a little glitter glue on the hat bobbles and also in front of the wording. I've inked the edges of the image with red and brown ink and have added a fine dotted line of gold around the edges too.

The printed backing paper is from the Rustic Walk collection from A Work In Progress - this was a freebie from a while ago which is no longer available. I've used my little sewing machine for the double stitching around the edges. And yes it is supposed to be a little wonky!

The ribbon is from my stash and the gold heart is a brad which I've simply glued onto the ribbon as the knot is too chunky for me to get the brad through! You'll have to excuse the fact that the glitter glue was not dry when I took the photo!

I think this could be my last Christmas card for the time being. But then again, you never know!

Thank you to Rosie for my winnings from the last challenge I entered - arrived really quickly and lovely emails!
