I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Christmas in July

Come and Get It Challenges is having a Christmas in July challenge this week and this is my card for the challenge. The sponsor of the challenge is Bugaboo and I have used an image called Duo Penguin for my easel card.

I used a Stampin Up die and a Spellbinder die for the Easel.  I thought using the combination of dies gave the card an interesting effect. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and added a scrapbook sentiment and a button to complete the Christmas in July card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
