Christmas is Coming!

Happy Sunday all you lovely bloggers!
It's time for the new challenge at The Crafty Pad this week!
It's my turn to choose the theme this time!
The theme I chose is
 "Christmas is Coming!"
You can enter any Christmas themed project you like!
Here's my card, it's a little scalloped circle easel card.

The image I have used is
I altered it, in that  removed the sentiment & made my
own circular sentiment around the image using my graphics programme!
The Ribbon Girls have a photo/colour inspiration challenge this week!

I've used that as my inspiration!
They also have a fab give away on now too!

The image was a dream to colour  with my promarkers
& I added some sparkly highlights using my trusty
Sakura Clear Star pen!
I printed & coloured the image twice.
I cut out the first image with a circle nestie then fussy cut around the second
 & layered it on top of the first one.
My base card was made
using a gold coloured card blank.

The sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad too,
you can find it here

The ribbon I have used was from a local haberdashery shop.
I found it in their bargain basket a couple of years ago.
I added a little bell which I had in my charm jar!
I have no idea where it came from.
Thanks for stopping by & checking out my creation!
Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog for some more 
inspiration from the mega talented Ladies of Team A
