Blue and green should never be seen!...well myself i love this colour combo and should always be seen!
Another Christmas card under my front alittle this year :0).
The challenge over at TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS this week is a sketch...enjoyed working with this one,and extra colour combo of "Blue and Green should never be seen"...just had to join in on this also gave me the chance to use some new stamps that arrived this week,wanted to have a play :0)....the stamp set i've used is a new release from Waltzing Mouse "Nutcracker Sweet"....both the image and sentiment are from this set.
I've coloured old St Nicholas with Promarkers and Prisma's,and added alittle gold glamour dust just to highlight parts of his robe and hat....i can never capture the sparkle on camera :0(.
The paper is Basic Grey "Two Scoops".
I've used a Martha Stewart "Zig-Zag" border punch,Spellbinders "Labels Ten" die and a Ek Success corner punch.
Brads,ribbon,self adhesive gem and gold border peel off from stash.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:-
ABC CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE.....S is for Santa (extra no red),this is St Nicholas,hope it counts.

Well that's about it for now....hope you all have a lovely day,
Take care
