Hello everyone, hope you are well, I made this card today to enter in the August challenge at 52 (Christmas) card challenge "Pick a previous challenge" http://52cct.blogspot.co.uk/p/sketch-archive.html I chose the 28th May,2014 sketch. I used a dark green cardstock with a white card plus a red background for the Christmas pudding which I used a light brown card stock and stained it with Tim Holtz distress stain "Walnut Stain" and for the top of the pudding I used a white card stock and covered it with Kindyglitz "crystalina" to give it a sparkly shine, I used a pale spotted green paper to cut out the holly leaves with a Tim Holtz cutting die, movers and shapers, Mini Pine tree and Holly. I used some red stick on rhinestones for the holly berries, and silver stars for the flag I used red cardstock and for the sentiment used a free stamp from Australian Simply Cards Magazine, issue 72.

http://merrymondaychristmaschallente-monday-123-use-wreath.html . This is a 5-1/4 square card, and has been stamped with a poinsettia stamp, which was coloured with Memento Ink pads, "Lady Bug and Cottage Ivy" the Lady Bug was a bit pale so I coloured the flowers with a water colour Pencil Faber-Castille Brand, I used the Merry Christmas stamp from the same set and used the Lady Big colour for that and for the centres of the flowers I used a gold coloured stick on pearl that I bought in a cheap shop, and I shaded the edges with the Lady Bug. I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp "work it Wednesday" Stamp it. http://www.simonsaysstamp.blog.com

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au . I used a light green cardstock with the poles and lamp cut from an old Sizzex 12" die "Flagpole with Lantern" I used black glitter paper to cut these our with a left over yellow piece of cardstock for the centre of the lantern. I used green sparkle cardstock for the pine leaves and the Merry Christmas sentiment, and I drew a faux stitching around with a white gellypen from Sakura. Hope you all like it.

http://52cct.blogspot.com.au I used a deep purple cardstock and used a piece of Bo Bunny scrapbook paper for the Mistletoe, because I don't have a stamp or diecuts of a mistletoe, all the Christmas stamps and die cutters are all holly, so I am glad I found this paper for the challenge. I stamped and heat embossed the wine glass with Tim Holtz embossing ink and Zing white embossing powder, I like the plain look of this card, so I hope everyone else will too!!
