Pass The Parcel Mice (GDT at TTCRD)


Hello!

I hope everyone is well!

A few weeks ago, I won a challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and was asked to be guest designer for a future challenge. Well - that challenge starts today; it lasts for one week and you can find it here.

The challenge is Anything Goes and it is sponsored by the wonderful Di's Digis
Di has some adorable images in her store, and at the moment she has a sale with many delightful digital stamps from just $1.

Here is the card I made:



My image is a Di's Digital image called Pass The Parcel Mice.  I used a fancy circle die to cut it out and coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers in soft colours, using the blending pen quite a lot. 
I chose some pastel Christmas papers for the background. The main green snowflake background was matted on to black card, as was the pink strip. The strip of pink snowflake  paper, had turquoise dots in each snowflake centre, so I stuck tiny flat back pearls over these, so that the paper matched my image a little better. Lovely ivory lace was added along the vertical strip.  Before the background was adhered to the card base (5.5 inches square) I added an organza-style, ivory ribbon and bow.
The image was added to a scalloped circle of pink Christmas text paper. This was adhered to the card on foam pads to add dimension.
The sentiment was printed from a Vera Lane Studio digi set called Oh Happy and was die cut and attached on foam pads.
The snow on the green paper had some iridescent glitter added with a Quickie glue pen for extra sparkle!

Did you spot my mistake?  
I forgot to colour the robin's beak!  I must remember to do this before I send my card.

Many thanks to the girls at Through the Craft Room Door for asking me to be Guest Designer today!



Thanks for stopping by today.
