There's no escaping Christmas...

Second card of the night! This is my entry into the Cupcake Craft and A Spoon Full of Sugar challenges. I've used the sketch from the Just Magnolia challenge, but alas, I've missed the deadline - useless! I forgot the deadline was 10pm...
So here is the sketch, which I've pretty much adhered to without any alterations.

The challenge at Cupcake Crafts is to use a Digital image or paper - I've used the fab new Pink Petticoat "Fairy Lights" papers.
The challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week is to make a card for Baby's First Christmas or for a Pre-Schooler. I've gone for baby's first christmas as I can give this card to Connor from his dad and I. I know this Christmas will mean nothing to him as he'll only be 5 months old, but it hasn't stopped me getting excited about it!

And here is my card...
Looking at it here I think I may put some shadowing around poor Edwin so it doesn't look like he's just sitting on thin air! I'm very pleased with how his hat and coat turned out though - I used Doodlebug flock on the white bits to make them look fluffy. Quite effective methinks!

Supplies Used: Image - Magnolia "Santa's Helper", coloured with ProMarkers (Sandstone, Raw Sienna, Cocoa, Satin, Holly, Coll Grey 4, Berry Red, Pine, Ruby, Cardinal Red, Blush), fur on coat - Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock (Lily White), Papers - Craftwork Cards blox and Pink Petticoat "Fairy Lights", Sentiment - Doddlebug Candy Shoppe rub-ons in Ladybug, Ribbon - Anitas (DoCrafts).
