Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #3 - Sketch Challenge

It's time for Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #3, which is a sketch challenge this time, and sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop!

I've used a little gingerbread house digi stamp from Digi Doodle Shop, some Christmas ribbons, snowflake embossed card, some xmas papers from my stash, my own sentiment and some chunky gems!

As you can see, I picked out this digi before I reallised this challenge wouldnt go live until after Christmas 2011! So, it's my first Christmas craft for Christmas 2012 instead. I'm planning on working on my xmas cards throughout the year this year, so I'm not madly trying to make them all in December this time.

Hope you enjoyed my celebration project, and dont forget to enter yours within the next two weeks for the chance to win!

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc. 
What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards First Challenge - Celebrate!

This is the card I've made as one of the design team for the new Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge Blog, sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps this week! Bugaboo happen to be one of my favorite digi stamp companies - I dont even want to guess how much I've spent there!

I decided to make a gatefold card (fancy for me), using this Cown't Your Blessings Digi from Bugaboo! I've coloured with promarkers, and only used one pattern paper from my stash, along with some plain and textured green cardstock. I've used some punched butterflies, teeny black and green gems, chunky green gems, silver outline stickers, skinny black ribbon, silver glitter glue, my own sentiment and hand-drawn stitching.
I really liked having a longer project to spend time on over a few evenings - I'm going to have to get some more fancy fold cards to play with!

I'm sharing this with ~
Digital Tuesday ~ Go Green
Sweet Stamps ~ Gatefold Card
Shopping Our Stash ~ Digi / Sentiment  

Hope you enjoyed my celebration project, and dont forget to enter yours within the next two weeks for the chance to win 7 Bugaboo digis of your choice!
