Special Couple

Yes, it's another Christmas card and one closer to my target! I've used a Penny Black image which has been coloured with Promarkers and the pirnted paper is from Papermania - Home For Christmas 6x6 paper stack. Sentiment is computer generated and the maroon card and organza ribbon are from my stash. I've used two Nesties for the shapes. A great simple card but looks so good!

It fits the following challenges:

ABC Christmas: L for Love plus silver (hat) green (flowers on hat) and red (burgandy!)
Oldie But A Goodie: Lots of Layers
Craft-Room Challenge: Anything Goes
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge: Let's Cool Down / Christmas
Art Impressions Stamps Challenge: Monochromatic
  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Papermania 'Home For Christmas' 6x6 stack
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities
  • Everything else: My stash
