At Beccy's Place there is a great month long holiday challenge with a new prompt every day.
For the 10th November the challenge was to make a card using a non-holiday image. To be honest it is something I would never have thought of doing so is a real challenge for me.
I used Mouse Hug Me which is a retired image from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in traditional Christmas colours. I added a mat cut from a Spellbinders die, the inside of which I fussy cut the image to the same size.
I used the current Stella Says Sketch 719 from the Catch the Bug challenges. I used a red & green spotty paper from my stash to match the colours. The gold gift paper is a scrap of wrapping paper. I highlighted one of the gifts by using a Promarker.
I added scraps of card and a self adhesive ribbon and some 3d stickers I have had in my stash for years.
The sentiment is one I have had printed for ages. It is from Platypus Creek Digitals who don't look like they are about anymore.
It seems in the years when I wasn't making cards a lot of digi companies went out of business which is such a shame.
