ABC Christmas …. ‘H' for Hardware

Hi all :-) how many days left till Christmas ?? … tis only 250 !! they will fly by let me tell ya :-) ,, so to avoid the last minute panic why not join in with ours, and the other fabby Christmas challenges in blogland ! :-)

This time it is our boss, Samantha’s turn to choose the theme ,,,

'H' for HARDWARE :-)

We are sponsored by our lovely teamy Lacey who owns the fab online store ,, Stamp and Create Lacey will be giving one lucky entrant a $25 voucher to her store ! :-)

$25 Gift Certificate

AND we have a DT call too so if you would like to join our fab and friendly crew please see the challenge blog for more details.



For my card I used this very cute Pickle with Present image, coloured with copics and the edges inked with stormy sky DI. The navy starry paper is from Craft Creations and I embossed a panel using a star folder, this was also inked slightly with the ink. All the silvery card for layering was made by inking plain white card with Pumice Stone DI and then perfect pearls brushed over the top, really shimmery and silvery IRL, I used some silver mesh ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, the star was made using a Memory Box die and I added some navy ribbon and a charm from America and some metallic dew drops to finish :-)



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so please hop on over to the challenge blog :-)
