Three Challenge Card

Hi folks

I really must think of a different title! Hope you are all well. Haven't managed to do an awful lot this week, despite being off work. That's what happens when you spend the time in crafts shops and not crafting.

I've made this card for three challenges: Whiff of Joy, Winter Wonderland and Sketch and Stash. WOJ is paper piecing (I haven't done this before), Winter Wonderland is Snow (I absolutely love Christmas so snow should be easy enough) and Sketch and Stash which is to use the sketch and a piece of new stash (I used my new water colour pencils - I'm adding to my collection bit by bit) and although the swirly ribbon isn't just bought, I've never used it before. The sketch was a dream to work with, by the way. I really liked it.

Card Recipe:
Image: Herb by WOJ coloured with watercolour pencils
Papers: Paper Adventures - Holiday Joy Blue Swirl
Small piece of velum with snowflake paper behind (sorry, you can't see the snowflakes on the photo)
Blue cardstock: Coredinations
Silver mirri card from the kids section at Tesco
Swirly Ribbon: Papermania
Gems: Kanban
Snowflakes: Kay and Company
Silver Stickles
Tools: Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Folder (for the vellum)

I haven't managed to do the inside yet because I finished this at 1.20 am this morning so I wasn't going to start on the inside at that time. I wanted to get the card done to meet the challenge deadlines and I might not get time tomorrow since we're visiting some boys called Take That - just in case I haven't told you all 50 times already! Am I excited like a kid or what?

In case you are interested in some new images you might not already have, my daughter, Suzanne, is giving away a lovely image folder, packed with images. You can find her blog here if you want to enter.

Thanks for dropping by and for all the lovely comments you've been leaving.
