Cute Lil (i) Pair :)

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

It’s time for another Papertake Weekly challenge and this week it’s sketch time.

So here …


.. is the sketch.

And …

1 copyc

.. here’s my interpretation.

I tweaked it slightly which is OK because the basic layout of the sketch is still there :)

If you get a sec, nip over to the challenge and have a butchers at what the DT did with it – all very different and all very gorgeous.

And we have a GDT call as well.

I’ve gone with sort of traditional colours but gave it a bit of a twist and used a black and red colour palette which I really do like.

It’s a very quick and easy card this because I used a Lili Of The Valley Cute Square – this is from the Christmas Is Coming set – and just added a bit of Glamour  Dust which you can just about see.

I used some Wild Orchid Crafts blooms and leaves and I added a couple of punched holly leaves  as well, more to break up the dark colour really but it doesn’t look too bad.

Ooops I just noticed that one of me punched holly leaves has come adrift!! Why oh why don’t I ever see these things when I am taking the pics!!!

Should have gone to Specsavers Dawny :(

The papers are of course Pink Petticoat and I used Gingham and Doodle Dots

And a couple of Tilda lace strips from Dies To Die For, some bits of ribbon strips, a couple more  punched holly and a little red rose finishes it off.

Easy peasy.

Which is how I like me Chrimbly cards cos I don’t always have time to faff about as usually I am on the last minute!!!

Right it’s a bit of a quickie today as there is lots I have to get through but have a fab day, stay nice and warm and hugs to all xxx
