Truly Scrumptious Challenge #20 & Copic Colour Challenge #39!

Back again! It went so quickly but was really fun! Now for todays challenges....firstly this fortnights Truly Scrumptious challenge, a fabulous and unusual sketch by Dawn with the extra challenge of 'Texture'. I've gone for a funky Christmas style card using one of the new Pink Petticoat 'Gem trees'. My added texture is the gems on the tree, Twinklets glitter at the base and a stripe of it along the card and two stripes of black chunky glitter plus some fluffy fibre ribbon stuff! I've shown a close up of the glittery bits. I hope you can join us! This also qualifies for this weeks
Papertake challenge which is to use something Digi and some sparkle!

Paper - DCWV 'Rose Tinted Christmas' pad & black glitter paper from Create & Craft
Gems & fibres - stash
Glitter - 'Twinklets' & Doodlebug 'Sugar Coating' in Beetle Black

Star - Nestabilities circle & Sizzix die Star

And now for my Copic Colour Challenge card. This week the colours are bright! I also have a little confession, it wasn't til now that I read the colours again and realised I got last weeks challenge (which I missed because I was poorly) mixed up with this weeks and used B02 insted of G05 - whoops!! Luckliy there is a little bit of green in there so I should get away with it! I've used one of Mo's Digi Pencil freebie images - this one is so cute and comes with a few little accessories! I've added some sparkle to the water to give it a shimmery look but it doesn't really show (why do we bother?!!)
Thanks for stopping by!
