OSAAT challenge# 26

Firstly appologies for my post not being live yesterday. I had pre posted it but not sure what i had done wrong ! Sorry to all my teamies for my post not being active xx It will probably turn up at some point LOL... Anyway i thought it was safer to just re post, so here we go..........

This week over at OSAAT. For challenge # 26 , its time to get out your punches and pack a punch

Here my take on this weeks challenge.

I decided to make another Christmas card this week.. With such a great image to colour i just had to. I really struggled to find a holly leaf punch the size that i needed for my idea. So i used a die from my Quickutz Squeeze. I layered the holly leaves up to make a flower, made a border at the top and bottom of my card just to add a christmassy feel. I used Glossy accents and stickles on my image and holly just to give it abit of dimention. The charm of the christmas tree was taken from y stash that i bought last year.. The backing paper was sent to me by a dear friend ( *waves at Rainmac*), it was a fabby prize from our groups swaps.

I got to use Stampin Dragon Designs , you can buy the image here 'Rupert & Penny around the Tree is such a great design for a Christmas card. I really enjoyed colouring this image and i will be using it to make all the special cards for my childrens best friends this Christmas.
