Noelcarol - Saturated Canary.


Whooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooooo...... I've finally done it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first Christmas card :), and not a hint of red or green anywhere.
I chose to do another of Krista's beautiful girls, Noelcarol.


Not a hint of traditional card but I finally got to use my Spellbinders Holly motifs and accents, bought them a few months ago with the idea of starting early.. yea... well it is only July. She is cut with SB long rectangles and accented with scalloped long rectangles. The silver backing is embossed with SB Impressibilities snowflakes.and my only other additions were pearls and ribbon from my stash and backing paper insert from Crafters Companions adorable cd.


She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils and I did add a little liquid pearls for her buttons and on her boots.


Managed to get a photo without me showing as a reflection on it :)




Thank you so much for looking and for the encouragement you show me

This is gorgeous Eileen! Love the none traditional colours and the embossed foil - fabulous. I have those rectangle Spellbinders but struggle to find images for them so don't use them much! Love the holly Spellbinders too xx

Well Done you!!! Brilliant news (to follow soon), so well deserved and I am delighted for you, anyone would be lucky to have you and I'm sure you will shine like the 'Star' you really are x
Brilliant card too, I love blue for christmas and rarely used trad colours, why bother, everyone uses those colours. I got my spellbinder POW today, £225 worth of dies, all new and not available until the end of august, got a beautiful one with cherry blossom branches and flowers on, proper gorgeous.
Anyhoo, you take care and speak again soon,
Andy
