Time for a challenge ;o)

Hello again - and so soon LOL.  Anyway I thought I'd post another card and perhaps enter a challenge too.  So this card is for the Crafter's Companion monthly challenge blog which this month is let it snow ;o)

So I have used one of their SWALK images from the Winter Cheer range;

Thought I would go with traditional red and green so used Spectrum Noirs to colour the image and papers are from SWALK CD no. 3.  I embossed the sentiment with some pearlescent red powder. The pins are from MCS (I think), matted onto some Core'dinations Christmas embossed card.  The ribbon is from my stash and Baker's Twine from here .  I did the inside of the card to match the outside which is my usual way of doing things rather than an insert - I don't know why I prefer this I just do LOL.  I think I want my cards to look handmade rather than aspiring to have my cards look like they are bought from a shop - can't really see the point in that .  Anyway I'll stop wittering now LOL.  Hope you like my card


  1. Hi Sam, lovely card, I love the way you coloured the background of this image. How are you doing hun, hope you are ok! Hugs, Frea

  2. Another beautiful card. Sure; doing the inside of the card does give a handmade card that special touch.
