Missed the boat with this one!

I made this card for last weeks sketch saturday challenge. However with me being a bit down in the dumps I didn't get around to posting it in time! Oh well never mind, at least it's another card in my christmas box.

Elzybells eskimo coloured with my whispers and snowtex/glamour dust added for the snow effect. Matted onto pink metallic CS. Patterned paper is from one of last years Dovecraft christmas packs. Purple CS is cordinations and a strip of it has been embossedw ith snowflakes folder. Sentiment is from a studio G clear set. Silver snowflake brads are from a papermania caddy with pearl adhesive dots in the centers. Stitching added with my sewing machine. Not 100% sure about this card, not sure I like the colours. I think I much prefer using blue's and the traditional red's/green's for christmas cards? How about you? What colour combinations are your favourites for christmas cards?

I have been feeling a little better these past few days. Was organising the storage in my new craft room yesterday after getting some furniture from Ikea, and I've also made a few quick cards which I will post over the next few days. I'm hoping my mojo returns quick smart as I'm expecting some stamps from sugar nellie this week, as part of my new DT duties and I don't want to dissapoint!

Hi Vicky, I think it looks great. I do know what yoy mean as I have been playing about with the trimcraft pink christmas papers and have decided that I am definitely a traditional colours christmas person.

I just spoke to Karen at SugarNellie and the new rubber has not yet arrived. She is still hoping for a delivery this afternoon as she is awaiting stock to take to the Craft fair in Glasgow on Thursday.

Have a great day

aww this is gorgeous, its good to experiment with different colours you wouldn't normally use =)
I was put off the idea of using pinks for christmas cards but I made some the other night and found I actually liked them lol
I have to say though my favourite has to be blue and silver =) xxxx
