It's time for the next challenge at Crafty Ann's again already! This time we have an either/or one for you. The theme is Christmas and there is also a sketch so you can do both sketch and theme or one or the other - it's entirely up to you. I had intended to do both until I remembered that it's one of my sil's birthday on the 9th of this month so I thought I'd better do her card instead. I often think that birthdays near to Christmas can get swamped by the festive season so I thought I'd do her card in pastel colours.All the bps are from Crafty Ann's and are from: mottled stone collection 5 (main piece), embossed flowers collection 3 and polished stone, pastels. Both they and the image were printed onto pearlescent paper so getting a decent photo wasn't easy which is why the embossed flowers paper isn't showing too well. This is definitely one of those cards that looks better in the flesh! The image is Faberge Style Egg Necklace 2 and has been completely coloured with glitters - silver, pale pink and pale blue. The frame is one of the effects you can do in MS Word.The bow is from the embellishments sheet and I've coloured it digitally - it's actually silver although it looks blue in the picture. The rest of the colours are pretty accurate so I wasn't going to fuss over the bow!! lol! My homemade silver mirri/brads adorn the corners.
My card is also for these challenges:
