Creative Inspiration Non Traditional Colours of Christmas GD card :-)

The theme this week on the Creative Inspiration Challenge is Non Traditional Colours of Christmas ;-)

Well ,, I had just received this very cute Happy Hoppers Bunny Rubber Stamp CARROT TREE so I just HAD to use it :-) I saw Curt's DT card for the HM Monday Challenge and he had the same idea ,,, I didn't copy you ,, ha ha :-) great minds think alike eh !! :-)

The image was coloured with copics and the carrots glistened with Tim Holtz DISTRESS STICKLES ROCK CANDY Clear Glitter Glue. The edges were distressed with spiced marmalade ink. The papers are My Mind's Eye, it was a double sided paper and I used both sides, I embossed the blue side with a star embossing folder and added crystal stickles :-) I also used Brown/Orange coredinations and some blue glitter card. The star was cut out on my cricut.

I know this might be cheeky ,,, and I don't know if I am 'allowed' to do this ,, being a GD ,,, but I am going to link this card to the House Mouse Monday challenge who have the same theme ,,, I just HAVE to !! :-) Hope the DT don't mind :-/ x x x

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
