Girly Decoupage

Good moning all!
I have a card to share with you today!
This one was made using a little decoupage sheet which I think
 was a freebie with a magazine. I have no idea ehich though!

The base card is Dottie Card from Anna Marie Designs.
I used some silver mirror card for matting.

A closer look at the decoupage.

I punched a border using a Martha Stewart Punch & added some sheer ribbon.
Simple & quick to assemble. The perfect little crafty fix!
Thanks for stopping by, hop you like my little card!

(I'll apologise straight away for the quality of the photos but I just 
couldn't get the pics I wanted!)

A fairly simple Christmas card (I need millions of these!)

Our sponsor this time is Lacy Sunshine
Fabulous sponsor in 2014

The DT were kindly given images to play with!
The image I have used is - Santa Pickles
The base card is an A6 Kraft card & the DP is by First Edition.
I used a die to cut the shaped end. 

I coloured Pickles using Promarkers, trimmed the image then edged with a 
Colour Q liquid chalk inkpad then matted on to some Kraft card stock

I used some Washi tape from my stash to add a border, then
finished with some buttons threaded with twine!
The snowflake fell on to the card when I was rummaging about in my 
Chrismas stash so I decided to leave it there!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you in the challenge!
