What Colour Is Yours?

Good morning lovely bloggers!!!
It's Sunday again & time for the brand new challenge,
#172 at The Crafty Pad, where the theme is
"Colours Of Your Flag and/or Sketch"

I live in the UK so my flag is Red White & Blue

I'm not sure why but I really wanted to make a Christmas card for this one!

The cute little image is Christmas Ted Posting Letter
just one of  a series of Christmas Teds over at 
The sentiment ticket is from the Christmas Sentiment Ticket Set,
you get a set of  11 tickets for a mere £1.20!!!
here's the sketch before I forget!

I am such a doughnut I forgot all about the sketch when I was making my card!
Duh, it's such a fab sketch too!!!!
Our Sponsor this week is the lovely 

who is offering one lucky winner 
a fab £10 Voucher to spend in her awesome online store!

Heres a closer look at Ted!
I coloured him with promarkers & added some Diamond Sparkles Glitter.
Not sure you can pick it up on the photo!
I added a little border which was punched using a Martha Stewart punch.

I coloured one section of the ticket & added some glitter too.

The paper has been in my Christmas stash forever & is a 
download but I'm not sure where it's from.
You can just about see that I've decorated the inside of the card too 
but I've also forgot to take a picture of that! Doh!
A trio of buttons in the colours of my flag & a red organza 
ribbon bow finish off my little creation!
Thanks for popping in today!
I hope you can find the time to join us this week at The Crafty Pad.
