Annabelle with her Christmas Tree .....


It's the November Colour Challenge over on the Ribbon Girl Blog and we'd like to see RED on your projects - so that should be easy as we approach Christmas!!  

I coloured up this Wild Rose Studio image 'Annabelle with Tree'  with inktense pencils and added Stardust Stickles and some snowflakes with a white gel pen.  The papers are from the Lili of the Valley Classic Christmas pad - I made the front a little narrower than the back of the card, and used a different paper for the inside - all edges were distressed with ink

I added white 'Laila' vintage style lace and 7mm Scarlet Berry satin ribbon 



I added 15mm red paper roses, Kort and Godt chrysanth, white sweetheart blossom and a tiny pearl cluster stem finished off with a little bow made from silver twine


Lastly I tucked a green Princess pin into the bow and added an oval shape Marriane die cut on the inside for the message to be written

Mariane Designs are our new regular sponsors for the Colour Challenge and this month you can win this fabulous set of dies PLUS a £10 voucher towards a spending spree in the Ribbon Girl store!
We look forward to seeing your creations over on the Ribbon Girl blog

Beautiful card Mary. Love the effect of the tartan backing paper. I really need some of those red roses though. Today I have used one of the Gold poinsettias on my card. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx
