Double Challenge

I've made a card today, hurray! I've just taken two painkillers for a headache but my dizziness seems to be passing and it's not quite as bad as it was - that might be wishful thinking! :(

Anyway, the card I've made is to cover two challenges:
Moving Along With the Times 127 - Last minute Christmas
Lollipop Crafts - Dark Red, Chocolate and Cream

I made the A5 card base with Papermill dark red card and the backing paper, from Costco, is matted on to dark brown card, also from Papermill.  I coloured the image, from Stitchybear Digital Stamps, with Promarkers and cut it with a Spellbinders nestie, backing it with the larger size nestie in the dark brown card. I also used Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany on the edges. I added three dark red pieces of Card Candi to the bottom left.


  1. Love this image, Hazel! Hope the dizziness is on its way - fingers crossed. Your comment on my blog made me laugh - my husband can't get his head around the magnolia stamps either! Hugs, Jayne x

  2. Oh I really Love this card Hazel !!! You've created a beautiful vintage look - like a leather album, and it looks gorgeous! Love the image and the colouring looks SO good in monochromatic and with the soft background. Stunning Card!
