Blue Robin Christmas Card

We got back from visiting the gift fair in Birmingham on Saturday, and I've just recovered enough to make another Christmas card :-)

                And here it is!


The card follows a blue theme and I have distressed the edges of the paper by tearing, rolling then inking. I got this lovely sketch from 'Cute Card Thursday' (See below).The outside is inked with brown and a little silver and the inner papers are inked with blue.

The robin is an image from my new Honey and Hugs stamps and is coloured with promarkers and copic markers. I decided this image looks better without shading. The paper is from my stash and so is the bow, sentiment and ribbon.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Scrap Creations - Blue and White/or Silver
A Spoonfull Of Sugar - Anything Goes
Promarker Challenge - Old and New (Old papers and sentiment, new stamp)
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Anything Chrismassy/Winter

Thank you for taking the time to read :-) Please feel free to follow me! My one follower is looking lonely ;-)

Much love, Sam xx
