2 Challenges in 1 card!

WOW! I really don't know where the days are going! Time just seems to flying & I'm just about keeping up! I found a little time & inspiration the other night to make a couple of cards. The card I am sharing today was inspired by 2 challenges.

The first challenge I stumbled across whilst blog hopping! I really like Dawn's style it really appealed to me & so I bookmarked her blog & so came across a fun challenge she posted!

The second challenge I decided to incorporate is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. It has been a while since I participated in this so thought I'd give it a go!

Christmas is fast approaching & I haven't really knuckled down to making cards yet which is about right I always leave things till the last minute! Anyway, I thought the colours were very Christmasy & so I dug out some of my Hero Arts Xmas Stamps!

I really like this Angel stamp but it was the first time it was inked up for this card! The sentiment is from PTI Signature Christmas - the sentiments in this set are so good!

I added a Hero Arts felt snowflake & a glitter gem for a finishing touch! I am really quite pleased with the outcome of this card!

CS: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, BAshful Blue & Cream from SU!
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy from SU!
Stamps: Hero Arts Heart Angel E4856, Winter CM005, PTI Signature Christmas
Accessories: Hero Arts Felt Snowflakes, Labels 1 Nesties, Grosgrain Ribbon from Stash! Apron Lace Friskars Punch, glitter gem from stash!

I would have had it posted yesterday but my head was thumping after a study day at work & I am fussy and like to take my photo's in daylight which is quite hard as the nights draw in so quick at this time of year!

Thanks for stopping by!
