How quickly is Christmas creeping up on you ?! Super fast here - I have gone from being quite organised quite early to suddenly realising that I still have some way to go before I will be ready.
So hopefully by this time next week I will be done and feeling a little more relaxed !

Anyway back to todays card - it is my DT card for papercrafting journey. Our challenge for you this week is to create a christmas themed papercraft project.

We are sponsored by one of my favorite digi designers Meljens designs. I used the beautiful Prancer digi stamp - I just couldn't resist him ! Look how happy and proud he is - a total joy to create with :)

You can check out Melissa's other fab digi's at her store here. I coloured up the image with my promarkers and spica glitter pens and added lots of glossy accents and stickles for bling !

I have used digi papers from 2 different kits - Merry & bright collection by creativity by Crystal and Santa's sleigh by Carina Gardner Inc bith available at Jessica spraque here.

I added one of my doilies (which I finally found - these have been awol for weeks and I have missed them so !) some ribbon which I ruffled with purposely large conspicuous stitches. I used the same ribbon to create a knot which is sandwiched between the button and the felt snowflake poking out behind the doily edge with the sentiment banner.

I must also tell you that the fantastic layout is not my own - I used the sweet Sunday sketch from last week - I know it is too late to enter it now but I adore the layout and think I will def be using this one again - so thanks Karen.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Passion for promarkers - Celebrations
Color throwdown - Colour combo - Burgundy, caramel, Suede & olive
ABC Christmas challenge - Anything Christmassy goes
