NOEL

This week's optional challenge at CHNC is to use some gold.  I used a lot of gold to create a monochromatic card as I had quite a bit of gold elements to choose from.



I have used a gold background paper from a Christmas paper pad by Craft Smith.  I added some gold starry washi tape across the card.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  I added a button embellishment from Teresa Collins and a sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps.  I edged the sentiment and image using a copic marker.

I followed the sketch at Stella Says Sketch.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

Do All Things With Love

I completed three cards a few hours ago and it has got to the last minute before I could manage to upload them to the challenge blogs!  Too much to do at the moment - and so little time!

Gardening

I have done a lot of gardening this month to help my Mum out.  Thinking about that is probably what inspired me to choose this particular image.

Shades Of Red

We are midway through the Shades Of Red challenge at Path Of Positivity.  As a reminder, this month we are sponsored by Ike's Art and Pattie's Creations.







I have used an image from Ike's Art called Poppy Wreath.



I also used a digital paper from Delicious Doodles.   Colouring is with copic markers.  Matting is red cardstock.  I added some red enamel dots from We R Memory Keepers.  I am not sure of the source of the digital sentiment.
