DCD Christmas Club #55

A new challenge is up and running over on Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club and this week we have a sketch and colour theme of pink and blue, for you to follow.
Here's my DT card.I decided to keep my card base mainly white for this one. I embossed the diamond shape on the CS using a Hougie Board, the Tilda was given to me by an online friend and I've coloured her with ProMarkers.
I've used the Crystal Print Magic from Debbi Moore Designs again on the image, can you tell I love it..... lol. I used a Go Kreate die to cut the image and the backing card. The snowflake was cut with vaious dies.

Craft Mad & Loving It! 26th February

It's Cherry's turn to host this weeks challenge over on Craft Mad & Loving It! Here's Cherry's sketch.
And Cherry's theme is "All that glisters, glistens, shimmers, sparkles, twinkles, shines..."
Here's my DT card.I didn't have time to stamp and colour and image this week, so I've used an image from a Debbi Moore CD, Evergreen, the BP is also from the CD. I also added some Crystal Print Magic again from Debbi Moore, to the image to give me some subtle sparkle.

Less is More Challenge #2

I just came across this new challenge blog, Less Is More, and I thought I'd enter into their challenge. It's ages since I've entered any challenges, due to my not having enough hours in the day..... lol. I love the idea of 'Less is More' for cards and sometimes the cards turn our so much better than cards with lots of embellies.
The theme for this one is a 'One Layer Card' to include a tree or a flower.
Anyway, enough of my waffle, here's my card for this one.The image stamp if from Little Claires, and the sentiment, which I thought was perfect for this image is by Debbi Moore. (my new I coloured the image with distress inks and used a nestie to emboss the frame around the image.
