For our daughter ...

... a fun and funky Christmas card.  Again I've taken a challenge as the inspiration for the card - in this case it was easy.  Mona over at Cupcake Creations has come up with a stunning colour combination for CR84FN8 - all the better because they are Kathryn's favourite colours. 




Again, as this is a scheduled post - I'll link the card to the challenge as soon as I can - it runs until the beginning of January.  Kathryn's card is for a sweet little girl - so the choice of stamps was easy.  Yet again I've turned to my favourites - Waltzingmouse Stamps.  There's a lovely set over there called Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy - and it contains the prettiest little Gingerbread Girl.  I stamped the background with Off Beat Backgrounds and added some of the little stamps - candy canes, holly, sweets and a bright pink ribbon.  Really pleased with the card.



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy, Off Beat Backgrounds, Seasons of Love
Inks:  Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud
Spellbinders:  Labels 10, Labels 14, Plain circles
Accessories:  Ribbon from stash
