It's Not Square!

Good Morning lovely Bloggers

It's Sunday & it's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
You're gonna love this one!
it's Team A's turn to host the challenge!
The lovely Diane has chosen the theme
Without Further ado, here's my card!
I have used
 Freebie - Christmas Ted With Bauble and
one of the Christmas Sentiment Tickets
from The Crafty Pad Designs

I made a little round easel card! Loving these at the moment!
I was inspired to make this card by this photo!

Before I forget here are our wonderful sponsors for this week!

£10 to spend in the lovely Lorraines shop
Vibrant Tones Promarkers
Well worth playing for!

The base card was cut out with my largest scalloped circle nestie.
The cardstock is actually a shimmery gold but looks a bit like Kraft in the photos!
I coloured the image with a mix of promarkers & flexmarkers
and added some stickles for a little bit of sparkle!

The Design paper is a Christmas one from Papermania 
& has been in my stash for ages! It has a lovely linen texture!
The flourishes are a Sizzix Die. I added touches of stickles
to those too!

Here he is again! I do just love these little cards,
I hope you do too!
