A crafty pad challenge...


This morning I am sharing with you the card that I have made for the challenge over at the crafty pad this week is 
Where we want you to be using up the scraps that you create
and you know that as a crafter you very throw anything away)

There are come great sponsors this week...


This week our team were given images to work with and they are all fantastic... i was lucky enough to chose a LOTV image (as you know these are a firm favourite of mine)

So here is my card...

I have coloured the image with my pro-markrs and tried to keep the colours traditional Christmas colours - I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
When I had finished colouring the image I inked the edges - and you may notice a little smudge to the left of the bow on the little girl (gutted!) 
lesson learned - if covered in said ink - wait for it to dry before handling your image!

The scraps on my card are the DSP that I have left over from a scrapbook kit that I bought a couple of years
the ribbon I have had for about 5 years - one of those that you purchase and very rarely use because it looks great!

here is a close up of the ticket that I have used as a sentiment - one of the crafty pad ones!
