My first Christmas card this year

Hi all, hope you had a nice Sunday and Monday. I sure did, finally getting some nice weather here again. Anyway you're thinking so where is this card? Well here you go, but before I show you, just to say I've had all the Wild Rose Studio Christmas stamps in now and I am so excited to use them, I just had to make a Christmas card and it's only August lol.... So I went through a few Christmas challenges and have made this to participate.

So here is cutie Milton with Poinsettia. I love how this card came out, I am trialing a few 'simple' designs that are easy to replicate for when the rush starts for Christmas cards. I find simple cards difficult sometimes but I love how this came out. I used the sketch on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.

I coloured Milton with the Satin Promarker. The Poinsettia with the Ruby Promarker. The paper is from Papermania. It's really nice, double sided and really thick, so almost like card which gives the card a nice quality finish. I added a few gems to the corners to add a little sparkle. Let me know what you think.

This card had been entered into the following challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge - Q for quick n easy
Christmas Stamping all year long - Challenge #60 designer paper
A spoon full of sugar - Challenge #117 Christmas
Stampavie and more - Challenge #104 Christmas in Summer
