Last Rudolph Day - 2017

Good Morning,  I hope you are all keeping warm. 

I had an enforced duvet day yesterday as I woke up with an upset tum!   It was my birthday on Saturday so perhaps I may have over indulged.

 I'm feeling fine today but decided to stay at home away from everyone - just in case.  I didn't want to pass anything nasty on.  So it's a good opportunity to catch up with visits as I've been overstretched for the past couple of weeks.

My card for Maureen's last Rudolph Day Challenge for the year  was made with a magazine freebie stamp and a die and paper bought from the Works recently.

The bow was cut out using a small card template and I used a peel off sentiment and some card candi.  I added a bit of sparkle  and gold gell pen to the image.

This card is beautiful Barb, I love the folding at the corner and how the fairy/angels dress matches the ribbon too.

First of all, belated birthday wishes for you and I hope you are feeling 100% again now after your enforced duvet day. This is a lovely card - this is a magazine freebie which I missed seeing otherwise I may have been tempted!! I really like the pleated paper effect and the colours all work together beautifully.

This sweet angel looks very folk arty & country, and so pretty. I like the colors and treatments you've used to make her special on this card. Love the way you've done the folds to look like a swag drapery. The bow is lovely too. (recently tried your whitewash technique that was so pretty here. My efforts were not nearly so pretty as yours, but thanks for the idea to try that! I need practice. These were Thanksgiving cards that didn't get sent, might share later). TFS &Hug
