Lovely in Lilac

Here is the 1st of the 20 Christmas Cards I have been asked to make for a friend.

I just love this stamp from 'Whiff of Joy' Lizie With Muff
I do think she looks so pretty dressed in 'Lilac' Although I do think I should
of done her jacket in a coordinating colour rather then all Lilac

I recently purchased one of Tim Holtz's On The Edge Dies - 'Ornate' not quite got to grips yet as to how to really use.

I have used Polar White Flower Soft for Lizzies hand muff, neck warmer
and her cute ear muffs

In this instance I made it up as I went along! I embossed some bazzill basics white card with swiss dot CB folder and once I made the edge cut I snipped it off at each end then placed underneath the other swiss dots embossed layer. I 'swished' some Pretty Petunia 'VersaMagic' over the embossing, added
some glitter to the 'on the edge'diecut, obviously did all this before assembling each layer.

I am entering my card into this weeks penultimate challenge at Bah Humbug
I have so much enjoyed taking part every week in all of the challenges set. What an amazing journey it has been. I also very much appreciate all the hard work Ann, Irene and Max put into the challenges as well as all the other stuff they do towards running the blog.  The blog owners are truly wonderful, in every sense of the word. I will certainly be taking part in the Bah Humbug weekly challenges beginning 2011.

A stamp from the Paula Pascual Large Christmas set with CB snowflake
diecuts and Marianne Designs Flourish were used to make
the Christmas Seal/Sentiment
I am entering my card also for the 1st time to the lovely

  5. Hi Carole,
    Your friend is going to be delighted with this beautiful lilac card with all those different layers. You are so good at 'making it up as you go along' lol! Your pretty image looks adorable in her lilac coat and using the flowersoft for the fluffy trims really adds texture. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
