Whiff of Joy Challenge


Hi everyone, a card for Whiff of Joy where the challenge this week is 'boy or girls christmas' and no blue, also for Cute Card Thursday and a challenge of Red and Green, I do have beige colours in there too, hope it's still ok. 'Willow with Lantern' is marker coloured and highlighted with sparkly glamour dust, layered on sage green bazzil and mounted on dimension tape. Background papers are all Basic Grey 'Wassail' and an embossed piece of dark red bazzil. I added ribbon and gems to finish. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Beautiful card Chris. I wanted to thank you for your brill tutorial on how you did such lovely shots of your cards. I did exactly what you suggested and I am very happy with how my photos looked. Even though it was low light here all day I thought they came out much better! No Photoshop here though I just cropped and tweaked in IPhoto and that was it.
Thanks again Belinda x
