Crimbo Crackers Challenge 22 - Christmas Pudding

The weeks are certainly flying by and it's hard to believe that we are half way through August!  But if you've been joining in with the Crimbo Crackers challenges every fortnight, the pile of Christmas cards will be looking quite healthy now!

This fortnight the theme is:

Christmas Pudding

Or similar - cake etc - I'm quite relaxed as to what constitutes Christmas Pudding!

I'm sponsored by Ladybug Craft Inks and Kerry has generously offered a £10 gift certificate to spend in the store for one lucky entrant!

I've been lucky enough to work with one of the digi images from the store - Christmas Pudding and it's been coloured with Promarkers plus a little glossy accents on the berries and stickles on the runny stuff on the top of the pudding (would that be cream?!  I usually have Christmas cake rather than pudding to be honest, although I think it could be brandy based!)  I've added it to the card with foam pads so it stands proud a little.
The papers I've had for absolutely ages and is part of a download from Mad About Cards.  The brown card is from the Papermill Shop and I've added some faux stitiching and some rather posh linen / twill ribbon that I bought a few years ago from a local(ish) craft shop that was relocating and everything was being sold at mad prices!

Good luck with the challenge - to find out more and how to enter click here.
