Challenge Me!!

After a bit of a bad day, (long story which I won't bore you with....) I WAS going to have an early night, but instead decided to make my 2nd Chrissy card of the season!

5x5" square card
Backing paper: A download from
Image: 'Bronson & Beaker Stargazing' by Pollycraft
Sentiment: computer generated
Coloured with my Promarkers
From my stash: Red & gold ribbon, card candy, red card & die-cut gold star

I followed a sketch by Fairy Moon Crafts which you can find here. I am entering it into their challenge #34

The card also fits the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers challenge #39...'Snowflakes' (my BP is covered in them!)

Quirky Crafts challenge #37 which is to use the following recipe:
  •  2 types of gold (I used a gold star and a gold/red ribbon)
  • 1 patterned paper
  • 1 stamped image
  • 1 length of ribbon
  • Colours: red & gold
My Time to Craft challenge #113 'Quick & Cute.'
Everybody Art challenge #115 'Untraditional Xmas.'
Charisma Cards challenge #44 'With Love @ Christmas.'
OSAAT challenge #37...Xmas (Traditional or Modern.)

2 down......don't even want to hazard a guess as to how many more to go!!! Lol!!!
