Three challenges, one card!

This card combines 3 of this weeks challenges. Well time is of a premium so I say if you can combine, then why not. I have entered this for A Spoonful of Sugar challenge (to make a card for a child), Papertake Weekly's sketch challenge (which I have rotated slightly) and Cute Card Thursday Challenge (to use red and green). Well I think I have accomplished them with this card!

The image is one of my new Elzybells stamps, coloured with whispers pens. Background distressed with bronze ink pad. Gold brad placed over the star image. Snowtex and glamour dust added before matting onto green DCWV CS. Red and striped paper is from the BG wassial pad. Red 'legless' brads are from craft work cards and have been glazed with glossy accents, as has the reindeers nose! Sentiment is from studio G, I masked off the 'do not open until' to leave just Dec 25th. Cut out using nestabilitie dies and matted onto a scalloped circle also cut with nestabilities from BG wassail paper.

I am quite pleased with the result and overall effect of this card. One of my favourites I have made in a while! I think I'll give it to my nephew.

Not long until the weekend now and I have the next 5 days off work, yipee! Hope you are all well!

Hugs, Vicky x
