Spirit of Christmas

Hello there hope you have had a good weekend and all ready for the week ahead.  I have been helping my sister pack her house as she is moving this week - geez she has a lot of stuff!

Today I am sharing a card made with one of Beccy's new releases for October called The Spirit of Christmas:

Its such a lovely image with the pretty script behind it.  I have coloured with my Copics and added some Liquid Pearls to the centres.  The paper was lying around loose so I have no idea of where it came from but loved the soft shade of green.  Quite a simple card, I made a frame by using Spellbinders rectangle dies and the tag is also a Spellbinder but I don't think its made anymore.  The sentiment comes with the image and I added a little star gem to the i in Christmas.

A little close up of the image:

Here is what the set looks like:

You get all the images and sentiments, the images come both coloured and plain for you to colour in. They are available here.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Fairytale Stamper - Something New (the image and sentiment)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Use Something Forgotten/Not Used (Mine is the paper)
Sister Act - Anything Goes

That's all from me for today. Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments - all appreciated as I know how time consuming it is.  Take care xx

This is such a pretty card. Love that pretty image with the script behind it;
Adding the gem to the sentiment was the perfect finishing touch.

Sorry I have not been by for quite some time. We have sold our house and bought a slightly smaller one (last post) and I have been purging and getting rid of excess items before booking the moving quote fellows!

Finally finished and now have a couple of months to create and visit before I start packing for the move!
See ya soon
