Dottie's World Sunday Challenge....Christmas...Winter Wishes from Madison!!!


It is time for another fun Sunday challenge over at Dottie's World blog!!! This week Karen set the challenge and it is Christmas!!! So, Karen would like us to capture the warm cozy feeling of Christmas on our cards!!!! Remember to use a download image from Charmed Cards & crafts!!!!

For my card I made the base 6x6 from some reddish Brown Bazzill cardstock and used some BasicGrey scraps from Figgy Pudding, Wassail, and Mistletoe & Pear. I printed Madison with Gift on Prism Simply Smooth White cardstock and coloured her in with my Copics..I am loving this new paper with my Copics! I sponged a background with my Metallic Rub-Ons and a little twinkle here and there with my Sakura Stardust glitter pen!!!!

I discovered a Copic colour marker that I'm loving at the mo! I think it is one that I would've never used, as it seems kinda obscure, but it just proves that you shouldn't pick your Copic colours just on the cap colour, the numbering system or the name alone! You really just have to play with them and you'll definitely find great colours to use!!! So, right now, I'm loving Y28 Lionet Gold! I used it for Madison's eyes on this card and I think it it makes for a pretty Hazel brown eye colour. I have also used it on other images for hair too, as a lowlight colour effect! it is a really great Copic colour and I'm sure I'll find other uses for it!!!

I added a few poinsettia Prima flowers and leaves and put some blue gems in the middle! The ribbon is America Crafts!!!

I hope you can join us this week at Dottie's World! It is a great opportunity to make a Christmas card and be ahead of the game! Go check out the other DT cards at the Dottie's World blog...they are all so fabulous!!!

Hugs,

She is gorgeous. I really need to learn to think beyond seasons. Christmas now is not my first thought. But maybe it should be.
