Christmas Nutcracker - Saturated Canary

Good afternoon everyone. Finally got my suitcase back on Wednesday, damaged, but with all it's contents.... phewwwwwwwww.
Starting to get my head back together again too and have made a card using a beautiful Saturated Canary image 'Christmas Nutcracker'.


My card is cut using SB grand labels 11 with another layer and a faux nestie added, and the image is cut with labels 25. I treat myself to an ebosser and have to admit it's great not having to crank a handle to cut things. I added Memory Box frostville corner and flourish. The poinsettia is another SB die. Ribbon and gems from my stash and charm from My Crafty Heart.




She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils.


The inside is decorated to compliment the front.


I am entering the following challenges:-

Thank you all for taking the time to look and thanks for the lovely comments and good wishes about my much travelled suitcase.  Hope you all have a great weekend

Hiya stranger, thought I'd pop over and see what you have been up to and I must say I am not at all disappointed. What a beautiful card. I love the shape and it has given me the boost to at least dig my grand nesties out and give them a shot, I keep forgetting I have them amongst all the other dies! Great colouring as per usual and I love the dies you have used, very delicate.
Hope you are keeping well and that life is treating you okay, I have missed you over the last few weeks.
Take Care kidda
