A Challenge card

This is the sketch for this weeks challenge over on the Allsorts challenge blog

As I wanted to join in the challenge over at Dotties World which is Anything goes - Red I have combined the 2 challenges & used red mainly on my card.

I coloured the cute image with my copics & mounted it on the scalloped circle cut with my nesties & used my gel roller pen to do the faux stitching round the edge.
I added white buttons

and die cut snowflakes along with the merry christmas sentiment matted again in red card & raised on sticky fixers

and added the ribbon bow & pearls to finish ...............

I'd also like to enter this for the PB at Allsorts challenge - thanks Brenda for the heads up :-)

What an adorable Christmas card. I really love that PB image and it all looks super with the traditional red.

Thank you for joining us at Allsorts Challenge this week and good luck.
