Christmas Chick

Welcome back - it is time for our final 2017 challenge at Creative Moments! Obviously our twist for this week just has to be Christmas, but we are an Anything Goes challenge.

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is

Who are offering four images to the winner

We also have a DT Call! 'We ask: 
1 creation every 2 weeks. ( want to make more, that's possible)
No experience needed as a DT member
A little experience with blogger would be nice, but we can help you
Your own blog.

Please email both of us: and
Subject : DT call Creative Moments
With a short story about yourself, where your from, age and all what you want to tell us.
3 of your favorite own made creations, don't need to be a new one.'

So if you are interested why are you waiting? We are a lovely bunch of people I promise :)

Here is my creation for the challenge using Skinny Bird Christmas Ornament and sentiment from 3 square tree.

I used a botanicals base card, which seems strange, but I thought the pattern looked kinda like Christmas lights. I coloured the image with chalks and metallic pencils from Papermania and Stabilo in traditional Christmas colours. I rounded the corners before matting onto deep green pearlescent cardstock. I changed the colour of the sentiment before printing out and then matted onto the same cardstock, but rounded the corners of the cardstock this time to give a contrast. I overlapped the two slightly and then added a bauble and some metallic pearls to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Country View #58 Christmas - with Reds, Greens and Rust (metallic pencil)
notjustcards - Anything Goes
craftycalender - It's Christmas
avenue 613 #204 Christmas/Winter
TIOT - Twinkle, twinkle

Winter Wonderland - anything Christmas Goes
Kort 'o' mania #188 Traditional Christmas

I would also like to share my homemade sausage roll! It turned out rather well if I do say so myself - now to make the next pudding!

Once again thanks for looking,
